So, I wanted to setup my iPad to check my e-mail as well. Here's what I did:
-- Mail, Contacts, Calendars
- Add Account
-- Microsoft Exchange
--- Email: (My email address)
--- Domain: LCU
--- Username: (My MS exchange Username)
--- Password: (********)
--- Description: (Exchange)
I chose to sync my e-mail, reminders and calendar, but not my list of contacts.
I kept the default settings except for:
Under "Fetch new data", I set it to check my e-mail every 15 minutes.
I turned off "Load Remote Images".
I turned on "Always BCC myself".
I changed my default account to Exchange.
I should also able to add e-mail accounts for gMail and Yahoo -- but I think my problem at the moment is my network connection status. Ultimately, I should be able to check several e-mail accounts in one place.
One of the things I really like about eMail on the iPad is that almost any time someone sends you something with a date and time in it, you can click on the links that form and use them to create appointments on you calendar.
If they put an address in the e-mail, you can click on it and pull it up in the map.
The best part for me is that if I need to quickly check my e-mail, i don't have to wait for a computer to boot up.
What's your favorite e-mail "tweak" on the iPad?
