Can't Sync MobileMe on new Mac

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just got a MacBook Pro and want to set it up to Sync on mobile me with my other macs (iMac, Iphone, the Macbook Pro this one is replacing, etc.) But when I go to Mobile Me in preferences and go to the Sync tab, it won't let me click the Synchronize with MobileMe option, and all the choices below are greyed out and unavailable.

I'm sure I've missed a step somewhere. Anyone know what it is? Thanks

Have setup your MobileMe account on your new computer?

I think so. In the Account tab in MobieMe in prefs is says 'Signed into Mobile Me' and shows my Member name correctly...

Have you clicked the Advanced button and registered your new computer?

I logged out and back into Mobile Me and that did the trick. Thanks all!

Now I'm syncing MobileMe on the new laptop and it's working, with two flaws.

1) It hasn't copied all (or any) of my mailboxes to MacMail.

2) keychains doesn't seem to sync, I have to re-enter my info at all the sites I go to.

Anyone know how to fix these glitches? Thanks!

MobileMe does not sync local mailboxes. If your account is IMAP, then it should sync your server side boxes.

There seems to be another way, a free way, with google to sync mails, contacts and calendar : https://sites.google.com/site/lesmaclinsenglish/
