    I'm new to iPad. Everything so far works well except that some of my emails say "this message has no content". Mostly with attachments.
    Any ideas?

    I'm guessing you were expecting these emails to have content - i.e. this wasn't someone simply sending you an attachment and the email itself really did have no content. If this was the case, i.e. a colleagues forwards you a file as an attachment but doesn't type anything into the message part of the email, then the reaction of the iPad is correct because it's referring to the message section and not the overall email including attachment.

    Dear Tim
    It turned out that the problem was that I had set up my email on the IPad as a POP account instead of an IMAP. When I changed the setting the problem stopped
