ok, so i went ahead and started a new mobileme act. i figure i've got 60 days to try it out right? lol, i tried it once before and only used it for like 2 days, i thought it screwed up my email, but now i know that a yahoo business email is pretty much the culprit. my question is this, now that i've got an acct set up, is there a way to change my "name" on the acct? like go from joe@me.com to joe302@me.com? or do i have to basically start up a new acct to do this?

YOu can not change the name that you set up the MoMe account with. That is the bad news.:( The Good news is that you can create an Alias within that account. (ie. Account was set up as Me@me.com. Alias can be set up as Me2@me.com) When an email is sent, you can choose for it to be sent from either email address. (Me@me.com or Me2@me.com) All incoming emails will come to the same MoMe account.

You can find Aliases in MoMe in Mail=>Settings=>Preferences=>Aliases.

Just remember it is not a separate account like Gmail it is just an Alias coming to that account.

No, you cannot create an alias with a trial account. If you're planning to purchase MobileMe, I recommend getting a new account with the name you want. You cannot send email from your iPhone under an alias.

Yea just cancel that account and make a new one.
