I'm after a "Mac Genius" out there for some mail/sync setup advice.

I use IMAP on an exchange server to give me my mail straight into the Mac "Mail" app, works great and don't want to use Mac Office.
With the introduction of "mobileMe" coming soon, what is the best way for me to get the mail out of the exchange server, onto my desktop using mail.app and to an iphone?

Should I set up folders in .Mac/mobileme and redirect all mail from exchange to my .Mac/mobileme account and then have that route mail to the iphone and do the syncing via .Mac/mobileme?

one more;
I can't see anywhere on .Mac/mobileme where I can set mail "rules". In sync, there is an option to have these sync with .Mac/mobieme, how do I tell that this has been done?

Just trying to get things sorted before the NZ iphone gets here next week.

Cheers

You can just connect your iPhone mail client to your Exchange server via IMAP, the same way your desktop does. The reason to look to go to MobileMe is to get contact and calendar syncing between your iPhone and desktop computer. I assume that if you do go the MobileMe route, then you will set MobileMe to fetch your email from the Exchange server via IMAP as well as your iPhone and Mac.

Can't help with the rules however, sorry!

Cheers Destined!

I completely forgot that mobileme is going to use IMAP!

So, mobileme pulls email and folder list from exchange, then serves it up to the desktop and iphone. Then either desktop or iphone reads the mail, makes the appointment etc and syncs with mobileme, which then updates exchange etc. Sweet and easy!

The rules setup is still a mystery. Mobileme must take desktop settings and store them somewhere?

Anyone with ideas, just lemme know.

Cheers

I'm pretty sure you just set the rules in the Mail.app on your desktop and then sync them with .Mac

There doesn't appear to be anywhere in the .Mac web interface for Mail to set up/edit rules. And so no place to 'view' them either.

You could do a test by setting up a simple rule - syncing it and then sending yourself an email that the rule should be applied to and see if it works in the Web Mail version.

Here is a funny thing - MobileMe doesn't use IMAP to fetch mail, as in exchange server mail folders. Drat, so there is no fetching mail from the exchange server in an ordered fashion.
