One of the advantages of having a mobile device with you is that it acts as an extension to your computer. You can open and edit spreadsheets and word files and email them to your boss while having your coffee date with that special someone. With the correct configuration, any iPad with an internet connection can send and receive emails, so you can always be in touch with business and personal matters while on the go. The following sections will discuss how to add and manage your existing email account to your iPad.
