    Is this possible??

    I have my iPhone backed up to iCloud and have all my emails setup on my iPhone via Microsoft Exchange. I'd like to have all those accounts transferred over to my iPad instead of inputting all my passwords and the fields etc.. I used iCloud when setting up the new iPad but it only transferred over bookmarks and photos ( mail is set to on within phone). Do I have to manually just set up my mail accounts on the iPad?

    iCloud only would restore the email accounts if you set up the iPad as a 'restore from iCloud' but even then it wouldn't have saved the passwords for security reasons.

    so inless you backup your phone to icloud (ie not itunes) and have restored the ipad from that backup you will need to input your email accounts again.
