    Hi there everyone, I have a first gen iPad and would like to add a second account to my mail app yet it won't allow me to. I went into the settings and the section which says add account isn't hi lighted, it is a light grey colour.

    Can anyone please help me out here?
    Thanks :)

    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the Search box (at the top-left of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.

    With respect to your question...do you mean that when you go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and you tap "Add Account..." nothing happens? It should look like this (click for full-sized graphic)...

    Followed by this...

    Is that not the case?

    If it looks like this you probably have Account Restrictions turned on.

    To check go to Settings > General > Restrictions > Accounts. See if there is a padlock icon on the "Accounts" line. If so, tap that and change it from "Don't Allow Changes" to "Allow Changes" and see if that works.

    BTW, I'm going to move your post to the Help section where it will likely get more responses.

    Welcome again and enjoy!

    You can add your second account through safari. Log in with your second Facebook account and create book mark by selectin the arrow and choose "add bookmark to home screen" select keep me signed in if you want that option. Voila! You will have your second Facebook icon on your IPad.
