    I suggest you provide more information so we may assist. please provide details about your computer type and what os you are using. Do you have a back up of your computer. Finally do you have your isp store your emails for 30 days and how is the ipad receiving the emails and from where. With this information we should be able to assist.

    in the meant time go in to preferences email and see if the settings are correct.

    oh oh! same thing happened to me. My wife is gonna kill me for fiddling with it.

    iPad2, iTunes on Win7 Professional 64bit.

    Yes PC is backed up. iPad backed itself up at start of ios5 upgrade. Only 1 email remained after upgrade and that was received 3 days ago !!

    The restore option in iTunes shows an iPad backup I made last night (before the iOS5.0 upgrade was available). If I restore from that, will it mess with the new ios5 versions of mail etc?

    Same here. Everything was restored except emails from 3 accounts.
    Mine is win7 home premium 64bit. I Did the update yesterday but when i check my emails today its all gone.
    I just tried to restore the back-up i did a day earlier but still the same. I planned to update yesterday
    So i did a backup before that and itunes did another backup before updating. Sad.

    Ditto

    No problems with the download. Backup up installed fine. All my apps were still in place and worked. The only hitch was ALL my email from 2 pop email accounts was gone. Not a one remained.

    With all the other problems I've seen with this update I didn't even want to think about trying to mess around with a restore as it didn't seem like a sure bet either. Guess we'll just have to accept it and move one. Sure would be nice to hear why that happened.

    FYI Win7 64bit Professional

    OMG! No warning during the update about this. Complete nightmare, I've lost the lot and no way to restore the selected items and current threads I need to keep with me when travelling. Also my sent messages, which were important. Totally screwed up, why no warning during install or did I miss it???

    PS. PC Win7 Vista Home Premium

    It's a setting that was silently changed to only show the last three days email. Change that and you'll be golden.

    Hi misterfudd, I like many others have lost all my MobileMe emails when upgrading to iOS 5. You state that it has been changed to only show the last three days mail and that changing this will sort it out but you do not advise how to change this. Which settings etc need to be changed?

    i also lost emails. i have 3 pop accounts on my ipad. 2 are completely wiped (empty trash, sent, inbox etc) and one is fully together. I tried a back up from restore (that i did before the update) but no luck.
