When you visit the Navigation Pane you will notice that your MobileMe address is now listed as one of the folders. Click on the small arrow to expand the folders. Perform a Send/Receive and all the messages should appear.

    I can see all my folders but the messages are not in there :( Any suggestions?

      The messages will appear when you select the folder you wish to view. Give
      it a couple of moments as the messages will download. If they are still
      missing, you may need to set your iPad to download messages that are older.
      Let me know if you need help with this.

      I See the folders but the messages won’t download. In the status bar, says “Disconnected”.

    • http://www.gilsmethod.com Gilberto J Perera

      Are you seeing the same message while viewing another folder or account? You
      may want to verify your email address and password.

    Hi, this is really useful. Do you know how I could also see my mobile me calendar in outlook? In my iPhone I can see my corporation calendar and mobile me (personal) calendar but I have struggled to replicate this through Outlook.

    I would suggest using SSL for inbound mail and TLS for outbound mail. Ports 993 and 587, respectively.
