    Bought an ipad 2 last week, its great and rocks.

    Been using Hotmail for years, thought I'd try it with the Mail app. Found that you can't create folders, or even view email that were in folders before.

    Then I logged into Hotmail from Google, and found that I couldn't even view folders from within Hotmail.

    Can anybody tell me what it's like to use any other email providers on ipad. Ideally I'd like to create folders/labels, filter emails, actually view email within folders (which as I've mentioned I haven't been able to do).

    Any advice and opinion would be valued, as I've got one Hotmail address for over 20 forums - and really need that email functionalty on ipad -if its possible?

    Thanks in advance

    I believe you only get folders if you've created them online in your email and use imap access, not pop. I've been using gmail since it was a beta launch and setting it up on my iPad gives me access to all folders in my account.

    Yeah thanks, I've set so many up on my Mac Pro - got it all very organized, then find that I can't see the emails in the folders on the ipad 2.

    Also I've just read that Hotmail is only pop, looks like I may get a gmail account.

    When using it on ipad, do you use it through mail, or login through google? Can you create folders too, is it like using it like on a Mac Pro/imac?

    Many thanks

    you can set up hotmail as an exchange account (just like gmail) which will give you access to your folders. Can't create any in the ipad app tho, this applies to all email providers in the app, its a weakness of the app not the provider.

    See what you mean, bit of a shame it does have that weakness.

    I used to use hotmail, but since I have purchased an iMac I have had to change to gmail as apple do not support hotmail on their desktops even through exchange. You can use it as POP, but that's not very useful.

    Really, I've been using a Mac Pro for about 4 years using Hotmail is no problem at all on it.

    What exactly is iPF?

    As Gabriel said, it's the forum; however in this context it is refering to the dedicated app for the forum. Don't search for iPF in the app store. It is called Discussion Forum for iPad. The confusion is because the icon on the iPad says iPF.
