    I am a new iPad user and new at forums- is there a forum for general questions to include several topics at the same time , e.g. printing, internet favotirs etc or do I have to pose each question in a separate forum - I guess if I read all the instruction for the iPad and instructiosn for this forum I could answer it myself but looking for"short cut" - thanks from a grateful senior

    Welcome and don't worry about correct placements.
    Just fire away with your questions in the general discussions forum and someone is bound to know the answers.
    The mods are very lenient.

    When you get more used to things, you will appreciate the various daughter boards. It will help you look up info more easily, and helps the board be more that just a single, highly cluttered place.

    Fire away with the questions!

    When you say email contacts from internet Explorer - I assume you are using a cloud based system such as Hotmail or Google Mail?
    Is this the case? If so, You can set up an Exchange account to do this. Please advise what you are using in Internet Explorer to manage your contacts so we can advise you.

    If you're talking windows based mail (Winmail on windows 7) You can export your contacts into csv then import them to ipad. Winmail open, file/export contacts to csv

    thanks for the reply- went to an ipad school at the Apple store and they solved the problem- have to load an app (surprise, surprise) - since we are on comcast we have to download the app "xinfinity mobile" that gave us an option to synch contacts from our comcast email account- it brings over the email addresses but no groups that were made in comcast- I can live with that -- they also downloaded "xinfinity tv" that allows DVR recording from the ipad- -- now I am trying to get our HP printer working with air print - so far found out that our HP printer is not set up for air print yet- saw an app that indicates it will set up any printer for $8.99 - will try that next unless someone has another solution - thanks ---
