My ipad2 is only 2 days old and I am working my way through things. Found out how to send a message from hotmai, but failed with my webmail. Can't get into the box to type the message, but can put name in the TO box. Suppose I shall just have to keep fiddling. I have had a desktop till now and will keep that for writing and excel, but this is great fror carrying around. In my sixties I feel brave with this new technology.
