    Hi Guys

    I have an imac with 2 mail accounts (.mac/me and ntlworld) and an iphone.
    I've just done the initial sync on Bookmarks, Calendars and Contacts but I'm not sure if I should be syncing anything else.

    I'm not sure if I also should sync these options? s t

    Mail Accounts
    Mail Rules, Signatures and Smart Mailboxes

    I receive e-mails fine on the iPhone so does the Mail Accounts mean if I delete from the phone it will also be deleted from my mac?

    It wouldn't hurt to sync the other options. They may not all apply to the iphone, but an advantage is that the keychains, mail rules, etc will be stored in the "cloud" up above, so that if your computer ever fries, all your sync data will still be available in the cloud. One more way of a backup. Also the mail account sync will sync account info. If enabled, if you delete an account in mail, it will be deleted on other macs and devices associated with the MobileMe account. Hope this makes sense.
