I recently picked up an Ipad2 and I love it. I run a small online travel business and I am hoping to use my Ipad to run my business while on the go. I currently use Godaddy for my domains and web based email.
I decided to try apples mobile me service which I have been resisting due to the price tag but with the ipad I have completed the apple trifecta, Macbook, ipad,iphone.
I have to admit I love it, it's really cool how when I check my email or make changes to calendar or contact the changes instantly takes place on all of my systems.
My one gripe is that none of this really helps me for work because my work email is web based. I considered simply forwarding all email to my @me.com which would work fine as far as reading and managing my email. However if I use this method then whenever I send mail it will also be from my me.com account. Is it possible to set up an outgoing mail server but not an incoming? That way I could forward all my email accounts to my @me.com and keep them synced between my systems and still send emails from my business address. If clients see me emailing them from my @me.com account they will begin to think that that is the best way of getting ahold of me and use that address instead of the one I want them using. Also I need to have my work signature attached to all of my work related emails.
I have been looking into free options to mobile me as well, so far all i can see is gmail.... which I already have.
If there is anyone else who uses the ipad for both personal and work email and are as meticulous as I am about keeping their email organized please give me some suggestions.
also open to alternative solutions!
Thanks guys : )
