You can access an existing e-mail account using the handy Mail app supplied with your iPad, or if the mail service has a Web-based interface, you can sign in using the Safari browser. Using Mail involves adding an e-mail account, and you can add multiple accounts, too. Then you can use Mail to write, retrieve, and forward messages.

Adding a Gmail, Yahoo!, or AOL Account

If you have a Gmail, Yahoo!, or AOL account, iPad pretty much automates the setup. Here are the steps to get you going with any of these e-mail providers:

  1. Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.

  2. In the Settings dialog, tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

  3. Tap Add Account.

  4. Tap Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, or AOL and then enter your account information in the form that appears.

  5. After iPad takes a moment to verify your account information, tap Save.

    The account is saved, and you can now open it using Mail.
