I've used the iPad and iPod mail utility without problem in the past and use it here at home with my WLAN. On the other hand, I've had multiple "issues" using the Comcast SmartZone Web program with my iPad, and I cannot use it at all with my iPod. Just for starters, I've found that it's impossible to compose a message in SmartZone if I've selected formatted text for my outgoing e-mail. It will only work with plain text. I'm not very happy with Comcast anyway.
