    I've looked through both the iPad1 and the iPad2 help manuals. Neither of them mention about adding a mailbox on page 44. So, the reference is a bit vague.

    So, could you please explain what you are trying to do on which type iPad? We need a bit more information of what you're doing in order to help you get to your goal.

    Thanks.

    Ah, got it.

    First, you can only create new emails if you have an IMAP or Exchange email accounts. You cannot do it if your mail is via a POP account.

    That said, I just showed someone how to do this in another thread. So, if you'll allow me to be lazy, please see here: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?p=416209

    Hope this helps.
