    On my new iPad 3G, 64gig, Im trying to set up two additional email accounts. My primary account setup went perfectly. However, when I try to input the information for my two additional accounts, I keep getting a msg saying that the Username and PW are incorrect. The information is def correct, any suggestions?

    I'm having the same problem with my yahoo email account. It worked on my iPod touch but won't sync on my iPad.

    Yahoo

    Im also using Yahoo, because I have a bellsouth.net account.
    I have all three email accounts installed on my iPhone and my iMac without any problems. I wonder what the issue is with the iPad?
    If I cannot get this resolved, I'll make a Genius Appointment at the local Apple Store where I purchased the iPad.
    Other than this one glitch, I am enjoying the iPad.
    If you find a fix for this problem, please let me know.

    I can send and receive email on my Primary Account that we set up in the Apple Store when I bought the iPad yesterday. Its just that I cant configure my two other bellsouth.net accounts. Anyway, Ive just set up a Genius Bar appt for 11:40 tomorrow morning at the Apple Store. I'll post here the fix for the problem.
