    Can The Droid Retrieve Apple Email Accounts

    I'm pretty sure there's a way to hook up the Droid to retrieve email from a MAC .Me account without going to the Apple website.

    I was able to set up my Mac.com account in seconds. I now have 2 gmail accounts and my .mac/mobile me account on the Droid and they work seamlessly!

    I have tried this two different ways.

    The first time I just went to email and selected Add Account. I typed in my mac email and password and BAM all of my emails were there BUT shortly after the phone gave an error that email had to shut down and I had to force quit.

    I then tried setting it up manually using the MobileMe IMAP settings.

    The ingoing settings were accepted but outgoing were not.

    I would also appreciate any details on getting MacMail on my droid!

    I wondering if there's a forward address which can be set on MobileMe, just forward a Mac address to my gmail account.

    Okay, here's what I did:

    Email (on home screen)
    Menu > Add account
    type in email address and password
    manual setup
    incoming imap server: mail.mac.com
    outgoing server: smtp.mac.com
    type in username/password

    Worked like a charm for me!

    Let me ask you this... does the DROID retrieve emails as they come in, or do you have to manually click on the Mac email account to retrieve them to the DROID.

    On my DARE i had to click on My Mac address to sign in, and then my emails would be retrieved.

    To my knowledge, no.

    You can only manually forward emails at your computer-no 'vacation' type setting that would auto-forward

    I don't have to do anything manually. It automatically syncs with my mac mail account.
