Customer Question

I just recieved a new ipad. My wife will use it. I thought ipads had to have a gmail address but hers is hotmail and she does not want to change. I have not verified the address in the ipad, but cannot go back to the beginning to set her email up in hotmail

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPad?

I updated to the latest, 11. ?? I can't find it in the settings

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iPad? What have you tried so far?

I just received it 1 hour ago and I am trying to set it up from the beginning. I had her Iphone next to it and thought it would transfer info but it did not

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No. I just want her email set up in hotmail not in gmail

You do not need any particular kind of email address to use an Apple iPad. Have you finished set up of the iPad other than adding the email address?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
