    With the release of the Messages beta app, I discovered that, in order to have complete synchronization of your messages across your devices, you need to be sending from a specified e-mail address. My Apple ID is tied to an e-mail address that I'd really prefer to keep private. However, I do have an @me alias that I'd prefer to use, but whenever I try to set it up, an error message instantly pops up. I also tried to add it to the list of associated e-mails on the Apple ID page, but it refuses to save.

    Has anyone had any luck configuring this to work or are aliases not possible to use for iMessage?

    I have my aliases setup to receive messages and it has been working since iMessage came out. You do have to login initially with your main account.

    Interesting. I've tried this and no luck. Still the same error messages.
