    Nope. I am too....think it would be an easy fix. Just a check-box if you want your password saved.

    I'm guessing Apple figures there are going to be two people using an iPad:

    1) The person isn't worried about people going through their email or they don't even have it set up

    2) The person can lock the entire device to keep people out.

    I do have the entire device locked, but that doesn't quite do the job since sometimes i let my friends, co-workers and family members use the ipad.

    It's funny because there is an option to lock the youtube, itunes (which is already password protected) and safari app. But the mail app is more sensitive than any of those.

    It just doesn't bother me. I would never let someone use my iPad that I couldn't trust to stay out of my email. Doesn't mean I don't understand where you're coming from, it just doesn't matter to me.

    HAHA.

    Matth3w: thanks for sharing your views. I'm a little surprised by the lack of response from anyone else but i guess it's not a big concern for many people.. I just hope that apple will add the option to lock this app in the near future for people like me.

    I prob will just keep the Email to the Droid for the time being. Or see how the Gmail page is rendered in Safari.

    If you hit regular version it's perfect.

    As I said earlier: There is an option to turn off email accounts in Settings. Although it isn't password-protected, the likelyhood of someone, especially someone unfamiliar with the iPad, finding that switch and turning it back on to read your email, is more remote than just clicking the icon and opening up the mail app.

    I really don't think iPad was designed to be a multi user device.
