We recommend using iTunes to manage your iPad's email settings, however if you use Thunderbird as your primary email program, or wish to set up email manually, please follow these instructions.
When you see the word username, that should be your actual email address.
For example, if your address is firstname.lastname@example.org, your username would be email@example.com, if your address is firstname.lastname@example.org, your username would be email@example.com, if your address is firstname.lastname@example.org, your username would be email@example.com, etc.
If you already have your mail account setup on the iPad, make sure your email account is secure.
