I have my own domain with my own last name so it is convenient for people to remember my e-mail address.
It is a pop account, can it create sub-folders?

I think you hit the mail on the head. My expectations may be off of what is delivered. The form factor is just so good and to tell you the truth the commercials set people up. I can't understand why the focus would not be business. I've made the investment and I'm not one to quit on something easily. But I only give credit to that which deserves it and unfortunately the criticism I make is valid. Once MS Office us ported to this platform much of my concerns should be resolved. We all have our needs and as the client base expands more people like me will drive the development that is underway. Yes I do want this to replace my laptop. Why not?

As for folders in the Mail App, it's coming in iOS 5 in another month.
Millions of iPads are being used on business quite successfully...
see, now thats the only thing i cant help you out with, but maybe iOS 5 can.

Waiting for that “Next Thing” means you’d never buy anything.

Asked and answered more than a few times on the forum, but the basic answer is POP3 accounts will only show the Inbox, you cannot have folders.

As poser suggests, POP3 mail accounts are quickly going by the wayside for a number of reasons. The answer is to switch to the now more common IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) account.
IMAP defaults to server storage, where POP3 defaults to computer based storage. Because IMAP is server-based, your email is identical everywhere you check it, on your work computer, home computer, laptop, smartphone, other computers, etc. You won't lose any emails (but be sure to backup all of your email anyway) and you will have much better control and more options (such as folders) when it comes to how your email is handled.
Can't go into detail here because switching depends somewhat on your ISP and your current email client but you should be able to contact your ISP or just Google for the instructions.
I have the same situation, my own domain names and use them for all of our email accounts. You should easily be able to set up your mail as an IMAP account. This will help going forward whether you use an iPad or any other device for email. Or you can wait a few weeks for the release of iOS 5 and continue to use POP3...but I'd still recommend switching to IMAP at some point.

For those that seem to want Office on the iPad, let me ask why? I once did, and now I do not care. I love Office, especially Word, but Pages will do exactly what I need to do, for 90% of my work.
I must ask what features do you want from Office and why is Office so vital to some people?
I use Bento for lists, simple databases, and generally keeping track of stuff, etc. I use Knowtilus Pro for web surfing because it is faster than Safari and it includes many interesting features. I use Zen Viewer for, well, viewing files, Drop Box for dropping stuff, and iFile for accessing documents stored on MicroSD cards. I do not need PowerPoint or Access.
Office is likely not going to be available, so I assembled my own "Suite" from other programs. I can be just as productive with what I have and I see no need for MS-Office on the iPad unless it is so way cool, I cannot resist.
If it wasn't for my work then I wouldn't be too bothered....though in saying that, this is my iPad and work did not buy it for me so I shouldn't be expected to use it in a working capacity, but I just find it handier to email etc on it so if there was an office for it then id prob use it more when out and about with work....
