Let's hope I describe this problem intelligently, as I am new to both Apple and my new iPad. I am trying to use sync for a few reasons, the most important being that we have a calendar on Outlook on my computer at work, and we'd like to be able (my boss and I) to "see" that calendar on our iPads - especially important to him when he's out of the office and in court. So, I read the directions in found in "Ipad for Dummies" to use sync to do this. The first problem encountered is that when I attach my iPad to the usb port, I get the "not charging" message (which I don't really care about, except that it should work, right?). Now it tells me to go into iTunes and it says iTunes can synchronizing everything automatically. However, when I open iTunes, it doesn't give me any options for synch, it only shows menus for Movies, Tunes, Books, etc, I presently pick up e-mail on my iPad via yahoo, but at home (on my desktop) I am using Windows Live Mail. I think I need to sync these because if I delete a message in Windows Live Mail, I don't want to have to delete it again when I go to Mail on my iPad. Also, if I send a message in Windows Live Mail, I will also find it in the Sent folder on my iPad - should that happen? I think I could probably solve a lot of these problem if the sync was working but it is not, at least not with iTunes. Can anyone help?
