    Hi

    I purchased my very first iPad yesterday and downloaded last night the IOS 5 update, I added my hotmail account to the iPad which was fine and created (I think) my icloud account but not sure). I can then add additional email accounts under settings which is fine, but it cannot seem to verify my main account which I wish to Sync to, which is my NTLworld account using the "other" facility under settings and mail

    It comes up a message unable to find account using SSL, so I select yes to continue manually and then it just sticks at verifying?

    Totally stuck, can anyone help

    Also now I am being think, icloud, how do you see what is backed up? How come I have to sync only when its connected to my laptop and not via WiFi?

    Does NTL support SSL? I'm assuming that you didn't have email set up before the update to iOS5?

    Hi

    I did try to set it up before the Upgrade and thought ok that didn't work so upgrade then try again but I still have the same problem

    OK - several email service providers don't support SMTP with SSL. You might want to try without the SSL option....

    Hi

    Looking at my account it does say pop3.ntlworld.com and smtp.ntlworld.com so I assumed it would work. I did try the option of not using SSL which the iPad offered and it still didn't work

    Sorry

    My ipad2 will not accept a TISCALI E Mail address. It accepts Hotmail and TalkTalk adddresses....... but NOT Tiscali.

    I guess the only way is to forward my emails to a hotmail account so at least I get them

    I had to set up a completely new E Mail address that the ipad would accept. Then I cancelled the tiscali one after telling all my contacts to use the new address.

    I have ntl working on my iPad 2. I had to log into my email account on the virgin media website and make sure imap was enabled. (it was by default but yours may not be).

    I then used imap.ntlworld.com as my incoming server.
    Smtp.virginmedia.com as my outgoing server.

    My username is the the bit before the @ and obviously you need to know your password.

    Took me a while to work it out but seems to work perfectly now with these settings.
