    No matter which e-mail choice I try to set up, my new iPad 2 always gives me the same rejection notice-can't accept my e-mail address or password.

    Any idea what I may be doing wrong?:(

    Update: I see what I did wrong! To set up an email account, you must use one that's already on your computer. I did that and it went through. I mistakenly thought one can just make up a new e-mail address from scratch just for the iPad2, but one can't. :eek:

    Thanks, Tim. I was attempting to create a new email account on the iPad. I wasn't aware it must already be an active email account. I fugured it out eventually.:)
