Setting Up and Using Mail

Using Mail on your iPod is just as user-friendly and powerful as using a desktop e-mail client. After you play around with it for a week, you’ll find yourself using your iPod to check your e-mail more and more. Here are some things to take away with you from this chapter:
  • Although Mail attachments introduce occasional difficulties, the rest of the time they work really well. Make sure to use your full iPod interaction vocabulary of touches, pinches, and so forth, to get the most out of viewing attachments.

  • It’s really easy to add preexisting mail accounts using iTunes, but it’s not difficult to add new ones directly in your iPod.

  • Remember and use the URL-preview trick. Make sure that e-mail links really will take you where you think you’re going.

  • You can change the “Sent from my iPod” signature in the Mail settings.

  • Mail in iOS 4 supports a unified inbox so you can see all the message from your various e-mail account inboxes all in one place.

  • Don’t forget, there is no Save as Draft button. You need to tap Cancel and then Save Draft.
