    I don't recall when the "Reminders" mailbox showed up but it only has the notes subfolder under it. I seem to remember the notes folder being in the Mac mailbox but I could be mistaken.

    Try creating a new note using the note option in your Mac mail and see if that creates the Reminders. The note option is the one with a yellow notepad for an icon.

    Another thing I just discovered. When I used the setting of "Mac" on my iPhone, even though it immediately synced to my Mac via MobileMe, when I did a connected sync of my iPad, that note did not come across. Strange to say the least. After testing I have come to the conclusion that you have to use the iPhone setting for the notes to ultimately make it to your iPad. Either setting will get it to the iMac mail notes. Notes created on the iPad make it to both my iMac and my iPhone. That may change with the new IOS4 when it becomes available.

    In settings click mail, contacts, calendars then click the mail/MobileMe account that you use. You will see toggle buttons for mail which should be on by default, under that will be contacts, calendar, bookmarks and notes. Turn on any of these you want to sync over the air by MobileMe.

    I understand this, but I am asking you where you then view your notes; in Mail or the Notes app?

    Thanks,

    Another addition, the Notes folder in Mail app is not on the iPhone. The notes are in the Notes app on the iPhone. On the iPad, the Notes folder in Mail app is there, but the notes can not be edited.

    ps I found the "Reminders" tab, under which are my Notes mailboxes.

    "Are you talking about the MobileMe Mail here? I don't have a "Reminders" mailbox."

    Give up on Mac Notes. Use Evernote. It is a free Ipad app. It does exactly what you need. (I got this suggestion from a helpful and honest rep when I called the Apple Support line. It's nice to know that Apple has this integrity when there is a soft spot in its code.)
