    I am getting disappointed on all the money I spent for iPad,Mac and apps with warranties to having to spend more and more money….is apple just a scam to rob people?maybe we all shouldn’t purchase anything for a week and see prices drop…they will keep charging as long as were stupid and act ignorant to this…I’m not happy with my new toys…

  4. How stupid is this – you are saying we can add multiple accounts but need a fricking app to view or access email from them? I have been a long time Apple fan, but the usability of the iPad or Phone is not up to their long history.

  5. My heartburn is that, while I can configue multiple e-mail accounts, the mail folders I create in Webmail for both Earthlink and GoDaddy will not show up on the iPad’s Mail app. EL said no can do. Waiting to hear from GD. My University acct custom folders show up on iPad, so we know it’s doable.

    I want multiple email accounts but in many cases they use the same email server (SMTP). The accounts require different usernames and pws. Is there a way to have multiple email accounts that access the same server in such instances? I have tried to set up multiple servers but the system gets confused among the various SMTP accounts. Help please.

    Why can I get yahoo email using the ipad mail application but not the imac mail application?

    • redboiipod says

      you could only use the mail application on imac if you have a yahoo plus email which you have to pay monthly

  8. I have successfully added multiple email accounts now how do I
    Retreive the different accounts?
