but they sent me an email later warning me that I AM responsible to make sure I have ALL of the proper margin for both sides;, ALL the micros AND the minis at the same time. Just FYI.

Per exchange margining the margin requirement for MES is 1/10th of ES. If your long 1 ES and short 5 MES, the margin requirement for that position is exactly the same as the margin requirement to be long 5 MES. (in this case $5600)
If your long Jun and short Sep in equal amounts, ie a true spread, there is a margin requirement, currently $1400 versus $11200 for the outright. It would not $11200 for the June and $11200 for the September.
If you were long 1 Jun ES and short 5 MES, this would be the same as being long 5 MES Jun/Sep spreads (5*140 = 700) and long 5 MES (5600) so $6300 total margin in this case (and not 11200 + 5*1120).

*Margin rates mentioned are official 'member' margin rates. Non-member rates will be 110% of these.
