    Is it possible to setup a pop email account to work on iPad? I am new to Apple after many frustrating months trying to get Droid and Outlook to sync without having to put everything up on the Google server; not going to do that.;)

    Yes you can easily use pop accounts on the iPad. Not much different than setting it up on a PC.

    I have a Droid and have no problems with my pop email at all.

    I have both gmail & pop mail on my Droid.

    Is there any control over whether msgs are retained or deleted from the server?

    I think so, but I haven't looked hard enough. As far as I can tell, though, iPad doesnt delete my fetched mail from the server like Outlook. At least not yet!

    probably better off using the imap server instead of the pop server

    I use the imap server instead of the pop server, so that I can view my emails on any device, be it pc, iphone or ipad, once read, it will show as read on all devices, if I delete an email on one device, it will no longer show up on any other devices.

    haven't used pop in a quite a while, but I think there is a setting to tell it not to delete it off the server

    Yes there is. The default is to NOT delete.

    Instructions:

    Choose Settings
    Choose mail accounts accounts tab
    Choose account to modify
    Choose Advanced tab
    Set whether you want the messages deleted, retained, or kept for x amount of days.
