    All you need to do is to go into the mail option in settings and add another account..

    I have my school email, yahoo, MobileMe, gmail... The only current limitation on email I am aware of is only one account can be an exchange account, but IOS4 should handle multiple exchange accounts.

    I'm guessing, like other iOS devices, you cannot have 2 seperate email accounts that are password protected (like one for me and another for my wife)? I'd love for Apple to add something like that. That's the only thing I don't like about the iPad, if we had bought a netbook or laptop, we each would have our own accounts. Wish the iPad had a similar feature, at least for email.

    I'm hoping for multiple user accounts on iOS4 for ipad. It doesn't make a lot of sense for a personal device like an iphone (most people don't share phones), but it makes a lot of sense on the ipad.

    I'm of two minds about this. It seems to me this is one of the ways in which the iPad sort of falls into a middle ground between computers and smart mobile devices.

    I like to think of my iPad as my own personal device and to set everything up to suit my own needs and preferences. My children see it differently. (There is no spouse to contend with.) The best, though not cheapest, solution seems to be an iPad for everyone. I cannot wait for daughter's iPad to arrive on July 13 so I can actually spend some time using this again.
