    Is there anyway to have 2 created sites in iWeb and have one publish to personal domain while another publishes to Mobileme?

      No. For that, you should move to a regular Web host. Plenty of them to choose from.

    Hi Gary,
    I have my domain registered on yahoo. My problem is that when typing http://mydomain.com is getting forwarded to web.me.com
    Can you help me on this, I really appreciate your time and consideration.

      I’m not sure I can help here as I’ve never used Yahoo as a domain registrar. But as long as you set the Cname to point to where I mention in the video, you should be set.

    Thanks for this tutorial. I have a related question. When I send an email from my MobileMe account, the email From: and Reply To: are mitchbradt@me.com I’d like to have my emails appear to come from my registered domain, e.g. bradt@modernpowerengineering.com
    I have this registered with GoDaddy with email forwarding to the MobileMe account, so if someone sends to this email it does get to me, but I cann’t make it look like my business’s email when I send.
    Thanks for your help.

      I’m pretty sure there is no way to do that with MobileMe. You can’t make the email look like it is coming from somewhere it is not.
      Your only solution would be to use an email account at your domain.

    Ok so I am using dreamweaver and a little bit of notepad to make my site and I needed to figure out my ftp server and such…so on mobile me is there such a thing or do I have to get a different host?

      You just use iDisk (windows in the Finder) to transfer files with MobileMe. So, no FTP, no. But Dreamweaver should still have a way to produce the files locally and then you drag and drop. Or, maybe you can even produce it directly to the iDisk location. I’ve never tried. Been years since I’ve used Dreamweaver.

      When? I’m not sure what you mean. You change it when you want to use this feature.
