I finally got my email set up and was wondering how can I get my email both on my Windows computer and on the IPAD?

Because I was having trouble setting up my bellsouth email, I was direct to use the Yahoo one in the IPAD menu and it worked, but would like to get my mail on my PC as well

You would need to create a new account to change it, but I am pretty sure Bell South should work using imap, and then you can run them on both more easily.

If you mean get the same mail on your iPad and also on your computer, just set it up on your iPad to leave mail on server. Then when you check on your computer it will still be there to be downloaded to the computer. I do it that way, so that the things I need to save go to the computer for safekeeping and sorting.

I am not getting that option. I was having trouble setting up my ***@bellsouth.net att email on the Ipad so I call Apple Tech and they told me to use the Yahoo!, Mail to set up my Bellsouth email instead of setting it up manually. I did and it worked but it does not give me the option to leave on server.

I'm not sure why they told you to use Yahoo, you should have used either imap or pop, but you will have to create a new account to change it.

My outgoing server requires authentication and this is checked and use same setting as my incomming.
