    I only got my I pad yesterday and despite all the negative comments that I have read about it I absolutely love it!

    One thing I would like to ask is the e mail. On the home page anyone can just press the e mail icon and access my e mail without using the password I have attached to it. My e mail account is with hotmail. If you go through safari you need the password. Is there anyway I can add a password to this as my family and friends will all be wanting a go of my I pad and even though there is nothing personal in there I would rather they didn't go into my e mail.

    Ps whilst typing this I have discovered a great wee thing, at the end of a sentence if you press the space bar twice it adds a full stop and a space! How good is that.

    You can turn that email account on and off in the settings menu, but you can't password protect it.

    Sorry but I'm a bit thick when it comes to this sort of thing! If I turn it off can I still get to it through safari and then when people have got bored with my I pad can I turn it on again and the icon will appear on the home page.
