    If you are getting that Yahoo account indirectly (say through AT&T) you should go to AT&T's (or that provider's) support pages for instructions on how to add that account to the iPad. It is unlikely the default Yahoo account will work.

    But, I'm glad you came swooping in to rescue-because I was this close to shining the help button in your direction! Thanks, twerppoet!

    No problem, though that small bit of advice was the limit of the help I had to offer. I know nothing about AT&T accounts or how to set them up.

    I'm not familiar with at&t accounts myself -so i was happy that the simple restart helped her!

    I know that some servers (especially POP accounts) don't allow more than want computer/device to be logged on at at a time. If you've got a computer you normally leave logged into email, try shutting down that client and waiting several minutes for it's session to time out.

    Maybe you can find a clue we are missing form Apple's support site: Apple - Support - iPad - Mail Assistant
