Your inbox just received a whole new look
The Mail app on iPad gives you a natural new way to see your email. Hold iPad in landscape for a split-screen view showing both an opened email and the messages in your inbox, each with a two-line preview of its contents. That makes it easy to get through lots of email quickly. When you want to focus on a single email message, turn iPad to portrait. The email message automatically rotates to fill the screen, so you can concentrate on its contents.
A keyboard that’s just your type
When you’re ready to compose a new message, a single tap reveals a large onscreen keyboard with keys that are practically the same size as a notebook’s. Because it’s software based, the iPad keyboard switches between landscape and portrait orientation with a turn. It even accelerates your typing by tracking what you type, and suggesting words, correcting spelling, and inserting punctuation automatically.
See your attachments
iPad displays rich HTML email, with images and photos appearing alongside text. When you receive an email attachment, you don’t have to save it and open it with another app. Just tap to view it right then and there. iPad works with most standard file and image formats, so you can rotate, zoom, and pan your PDFs (maybe you need to convert PDF to iPad), iWork files, and Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files. You can even save pictures to the iPad photo library with a tap.
More to tap in every message
iPad Mail is smart about the content in email messages. It converts web URLs, phone numbers, email addresses, and street addresses to links. Just tap one and iPad automatically opens the right app - Safari, Contacts, Maps — so you can act on it right away. And if you’re writing an email and you need to open another app to check a phone number or map an address, Mail remembers where you left off.
Incredibly compatible and Surprisingly easy
Mail on iPad works with the most popular email providers, including MobileMe, Google Gmail, Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, and AOL, along with most industry-standard IMAP and POP email systems. To add an account, just type in some basic information and iPad does the rest. And when you need to find a message, Mail searches email on both your iPad and the server (depending on the type of account).
