New To This
Hello - I'm new to this and just got an IPAD2 16G WIFI. Everything works fine - BUT - when I delete email from my IPAD - it still remains on my Laptop. I'd prefer that when I delete an email be it from my laptop or IPAD that the email would be gone from both devices. Any advise?

It depends whether you're using POP or IMAP for your email protocol. It sounds as though you're using POP. Switch to IMAP and your wish will be granted!
Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and enjoy your iPad

Thank you Tim - you are correct it is a POP account - so how do I switch the account to IMAP - The email provider I have uses POP. Does that mean I should find a provider that uses IMAP, or is there some thing I can do to make it IMAP?
I use RoadRunner, which is antiquated to the max - they don't do IMAP, only POP.

To do this, I've set up my RoadRunner e-mail account (via the iPad's Settings app, under the Advanced portion) to
1) Remove "Deleted Message" after one day
2) Delete from server "when removed from inbox"
As I said, this works for me in that my RoadRunner account stays cleaned up. Maybe it'll help you? Good luck and let me know how you get on.
P.S. Of course, you could do what I also did - I got a Gmail account so I could have an IMAP account. But, I still have to deal with the RoadRunner one, so, it solved half my troubles...
