    I just purchased my I-pad and went to my mail on Comcast.net. Normallly if it is a long message, there is a down arrow to scroll through the message. On the I-pad the scroll arrow does not appear. Do I need to do something on I-pad to fix this?

    Its probably something weird on the website that doesnt work in the iPad browser.

    Its probably better if you setup your email account in the iPads Mail Application.

    I think the arrow navigation keys will work with the extended keyboard

    As a side note Comcast has a habit of blocking port 25 for home users.

    I just purchased my iPad and am having problem setting up my comcast email account on my iPad. I get a failure to connect to the server error message and can send emails but can't receive. Any advise is greatly appreciated

    Go to the Comcast Help page and do a search for the appropriate settings to input.

    Brenn,

    I went to the mail icon and followed the instructions for adding "other" email accounts. I'm not aware of the iPad auto setup process.

    Hmmm. Yeah that would be the way I did it. I would try deleting the accounts and set up again.

    Comcast troubles

    I properly set up my new Ipad to sync my comcast email. I can get the mail, but the comcast address book does not show upon my ipad. Any suggestions?

    If your going in via browser you should pick up either iCab or Atomic. Both are a better browsing experience than Safari. Don't forget to change your browser in settings to something other than mobile safari.

    Did you sync to your computer and make sure you check the contacts box?
