Does anyone know if there is a method of persuading either of these units to trigger the other using their inbuilt wireless ability, and if not, what would be the easiest/cheapest way of getting the 580 to trigger the Metz.
thanks for any advice

I'm afraid the 40MZ is of the old vintage - i.e. you need to get away from the SCA adapter which are no longer compatible with digital cameras (or their wireless trigger)

-> The 58AF-1 (Master and Slave) or the 48AF-1 (Slave only) are the only one compatible with your Canon wireless system:
A 48AF can be controlled from the 580EX
A 58AF can be controlled by a 580EX or it can control the 580EX or a 430EX
