    ty to search the forum there are numerous threats with tips to that topic

    it´s really complex and you can only push if you have outlook exchange and then it get´s even more complex because you (company) server has to be set up for exchange and all that.

    wth a simple oulook account just check the account in the sync settings in itunes and you should be good to go

    In outlook:

    Tools->Options->Mail Setup->Email Accounts->View or Change Existing.

    Type the info into the iphone and you're done. Unless you are on an exchange server at an office. Then you will have to speak to the IT department.

    in my experience it´ll be easier to set it up on your computer and then sync it
    ... a lot of times it doesn´t work to do it directly on the phone ...

    Yea, it's a work email. They set it up for me. All i have is a username and password. When I had a blackberry, i was easily able to set it up on there and have the emails pushed to it. I did a search on here and found a little something that I tried. This is what I have...

    Incoming Mail Server
    Host Name: pop.secureserver.net

    Outgoing Mail Server
    SMTP: smtpout.secureserver.net

    No Idea what I did, but it set it up but I can't send or recieve emails lol

    usually they have to do it with the configuration tool and send it to you via email (yeah i know you ask yourself how without the email set up ... you could just create a simple account with gmail on your phone)
    ... they set it up because in most cases there has to be a security certificate attached to the settings and all that stuff ... it´s almost impossible to set up exchange yourself ....
    if you are lucky and you try to set it up while beeing locked in your companys wlan it might recognize the settings by your email adress and set it up but i highly doubt it !

    ha good luck with that ... :) i tried to set up my dads account (it´s his company so the it guy works for him) since the the it guy went MIA
    you just have to always tell them that you know it works and that they have to make it possinle :)
    the server has to be configured for active sync, i thing you need a certificate for mobile devices and there have to be certain ports open ... and confusing stuff like that

    If this is what you are using in Outlook then you are using GoDaddy POP3 EMAIL and you can't PUSH directly from GoDaddy.

    I also use GoDaddy and I have my Mail Forward to my MobileMe Account (I used Yahoo Push Mail Before MobileMe). MobileMe will then Push to my iPhone. I also Sync my Outlook Contacts and Calendar with MobileMe.

    isn´t the problem with that, that the iphone always shows your mobile me adress when you reply to your mail that are beeing pushed, or did somebody finally discover a workaround because it makes no sense to me, having my regular mail pushed to my phone and then not beeing able to reply from that adress....

    i so wish apple would change this because i really like all the other features like having ical and adressbook pushed ... but without the mail it makes no sense to me personally

    That problem is only if you are using the MobileMe Web Mail (can't change the ReplyTo or From Address). From the iPhone you can use the GoDaddy SMTP Servers with your normal email address as a workaround. Also, since he is using Outlook he can add the MobileMe IMAP Account and really has no need to user MobileMe Web Mail.

    Yeah the trick with the SMTP servers unfortunately didn't work for me even though I changed it it would still show me mobile me adress for some reason ...

    Are you using the GoDaddy SMTP Servers? Also, "which" SMTP trick did you try? I created dummy SMTP ONLY Email Accounts on my iPhone. 1 for "support@mydomain.com" and 1 for "sales@mydomain.com" and when I send email I just select which one to use. For me that works pretty well since it does not show the "on behave of" in the From Address.

    it sent the email out to but the adress was still the mobile me one ...

    If you are still interested you might want to try my method. When you do a send you need to select the From Address and select the other email account. When you setup that email account make sure to use the correct email address. I know this is not the best solution but works quite well for me because I have mutilple from addresses that I need to use. When you only have 1 email address then this extra step is more of a hassle.

    thanks i might give it a try ... ! I´m still hoping for mobile me to become something like a full hoasting service ... I imagine that the current business model is to first let people get used to their me adress and when it comes to paying again they will because they don´t want to loose theír email adrress so the people depent on the service but I still hope that apple realizes that they might gain a lot more customers if they integrate other email adresses

    I agree. I have a small business and I think they could improve the service to be of interest to small business customers as well with some relatively small changes.

    1. Other Email Address as we are discussing.
    2. Shared Calendars (allow internet subscriptions)
    3. Small Business Group Setup (similiar to Family Plan)
    4. Remote Wipe of the iPhone
    5. other....

    yeah also stuff like movie playback or music streaming from your mobile me to your iphone would be great
