    I am having a problem setting up my iPad to fetch my home computer email. Time Warner says it's because they do not support imap and iPad does not recognize pop. Surely there is a workaround? I have it set up on Mobileme to retrieve the roadrunner mail but I can't figure out how to retrieve my roadrunner.com mail from my iPad. Does anyone know?

    iPad does support pop. Take a look again in the settings app.

    Just minutes ago I set up a new POP account for my Cox cable account.

    No problems.

    Can someone walk me thru it, please? It's obvious I don't know how and Time Warner even suggested I call them back and let them know how to do it. Help. Thanks!

    From the Apple support site, a good place to check for help on your iPad :)

    Before you can use your email account on iPad - you need to add your account to Mail.

    Tap Mail
    Select your account type. Tap Other if your account is not listed.
    Enter your account information and tap Save. Mail configures most email accounts automatically. Otherwise, you will be prompted for any additional settings.
    Once your account information is saved - you can start sending and receiving email.
    You can configure additional accounts by tapping Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account

    And here is my quick version:

    Settings
    Mail (5th one down)
    Add account
    Other
    Add account
    Fill in info

    And below is the Apple support site for your iPad...

    Bremen, I swear I tried exactly what you advised for more times than I can count on one hand and the POP button NEVER showed itself until this time. Thank you so much for helping me. I was doing something wrong but now it's set up! I appreciate your helping me and I know it's not the first time!Thanks again!!!!!

    What should be entered in the three fields under Incoming Mail Server?

    Depends who your ISP (Internet Service Provider) is. Mine is Cox Cable in RI.

    Example:

    Incoming is: pop.east.cox.net
    Outgoing is: smtp.east.cox.net

    Contact your ISP and they will gladly supply you with the info you need.
