No personal domain use with MobileMe?
“To use MobileMeâ€™s push email service, you will need to use their me.com domain. There is really no way to configure your iPhone to use the push email service without using the @me.com domain name. I agree that it is a really cool and short domain, but I am totally against the idea of using an email address that I have to pay for the privilege to use, since youâ€™ll be stuck paying for a service just for its email address.” – Chris Erice
This is my main concern with MobileMe. Syncing is fantastic and what I really want from the service, but being locked into using their email address is a major turn off.
It is of course possible to set up your current domain to forward your existing emails to your @me.com address and then spoof the outgoing email address, but this isn’t true integration. This method is handy for the time being but it is ineffective when it comes to SPAM filtering that is server-side.
For now we will have to wait until Apple integrates this as a feature which we can only assume they will do as the masses cry out for it.
