    Only one email address getting mail, sort of?

    Hi

    When I set up our iPad I put in my account and my wife's.

    All my mail is coming to the pad, and I sent a message from my computer to her and it appeared.

    But he other messages are showing up on her laptop but not the pad.

    It tried to download every thing on the sever to my account, it didn't do that with her's?

    Thanks for the help!

    Mike

    Check the fetch and sync settings on the laptop. Sounds like it is fetching mail and deleting it from the server before the iPads next fetch. Multiple devices hitting the same account should be set up carefully. I would set the laptop to push and sync but not delete from server. The iPad I would set up the same way. This way both devices should receive all mail when it hits the sever inbox. As an insurance policy I would set both to NOT DELETE mail on the server once retrieved this way you are assured the server inbox is pristine.
    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.
