We show you how to set up email on the iPad Mini

Apple's iPad Mini supports a multitude of email clients out the box, including Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, and Yahoo! Mail. And because push is always enabled you'll never miss an important email when you have your iPad Mini with you.

Below we'll take you through the basic steps of setting up two distinct types of email: Exchange or Gmail/Yahoo! Mail. It's fairly straight-forward, although Exchange can be slightly trickier depending on your work's IT department and how they have configured the email client.

Exchange Email

  • Tap Settings
  • Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  • Select Add Account
  • Select Microsoft Exchange
  • Enter your email address, domain, username, password and a description that you wish to call your account (such as 'work')
  • If required, enter the Server name
  • Decide what you want to sync - Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  • Your account will now be configured

Google Mail/Yahoo Mail

  • Tap Settings
  • Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  • Select Add Account
  • Select Google Mail
  • Enter your name, email address, password and description (ie., 'home')
  • If your account is found, you'll be ready to send and receive emails straight away
