    I've got a MobileMe account, which I've had for years, plus an additional email address attached to that account.

    The main account when active on the iPhone works as expected - email is pushed to the phone within seconds of arriving in the MobileMe inbox.

    The secondary email address, however, doesn't seem to get pushed at all. I have to set the iPhone to Fetch that account's email, otherwise it'll never arrive to the phone without manually checking.

    The main MobileMe account on the phone has mail, calendars, contacts, bookmarks and Find My iPhone all turned on in the phone's settings. The secondary MobileMe address has only mail turned on (other options like calendar, contacts, etc., are off).

    I've tried rebooting the phone, deleting and re-adding the account.... Nothing will get Push mail to function on the secondary MobileMe email address.

    Anyone having similar issues? Is it by design that only one MobileMe email address gets Push mail, or is something screwy with my setup?

    I had two MobileMe accounts active as well but I read that the iPhone will only push to one if there are two MobileMe accounts on the iPhone.

    That is stated somewhere on the support pages for MobileMe.
