Is there a way to backup the email inbox & the documents on my MacBook Pro to iCloud & then retrieve them using my iPhone 5?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    For documents, if you're using Pages on your MacBook Pro, you can purchase Pages for your iPhone and share documents that way.  In addition (or instead), you can share PDF files by dragging them to/from iTunes books on your Mac and they'll appear in iBooks on your iPhone.


    For mail, you can use iCloud mail and then your Mac and iPhone will have their inboxes synced over-the-air.
