  • At the very beginning you refer to "Mail, Contacts and Calendar" but my iPad has them separated. I tried to add the account via the Mail icon. The only choicesare IMAP and POP,no POP3. When I used the info above, I got an error saying they could not connect using SSL. When I tried to connect without it, it still didn't work. What am I doing wrong? Nolan Altman (nta@pipeline.com)
