    I've set up cloud on my desktop, and found it in settings of mini retina ipad. It won't verify on the ipad, keeps telling me to check mail. I don't think I've set up the cloud address on the ipad :(
    I tried to set it up on the desktop, but not sure of the incoming mail address. Consequently when I try to verify it on the desktop and it says resend mail - it does not happen.

    If it can be found in Settings - iCloud on your iPad, with the email address you're using, it's already set up on it. Just check the Mail app.

    To set up an @icloud.com email address on your PC, look at this link: http://support.apple.com/kb/ph2621

    I'll look up the site. I already have the cloud address on my pc and the ipad but they aren't talking. I am not sure of the settings for the mail though. It just won't verify. I have no idea where "Apple menu > System Preferences, then click iCloud" is, I can only find settings.

    I am thinking the problem with my settings is because I am in a village and all our mail is controlled from a central setting. Can I use cloud but using a hotmail address?

    You can use your Apple ID as iCloud account, this includes Hotmail.

    Now that I am back on deck in Apple, I will (cautiously) seek out a cloud account.

    I might be back though lol ... I am going away for 9 days soon, and will be taking the ipad with me, so I'll be making sure I know all I need to know!

    No problem. :)
    The helpfulness and friendliness of the members of this forum is one of the reasons why I like it that much. So if you have a question, you'll certainly get an answer. There are quite a few members who like to share their knowledge about the iPad with others. :) Who knows? Maybe, if it's something I can answer, and I'm not too late, you'll see me again. :cool:
