  1. Start the Email app. Look for it in the Apps drawer.
    If you've run the Email app before, you see the Email inbox and you're done.
    If you haven't yet run the Email app, the first screen you see is Account Setup.
  2. Type the e-mail address you use for the account.
  3. Type the password for that account.
  4. Touch the Next button.
    If you're lucky, everything is connected and you can move on to Step 5. Otherwise, you have to specify the details as provided by your ISP, including the incoming and outgoing server information, often known by the bewildering acronyms POP3 and SMTP. Plod through the steps on the screen, although the tablet really just wants to know the incoming and outgoing server names.
    Your ISP most likely has a support web page for setting up e-mail accounts. That page may list specific account setup information for an Android device. Use it.
  5. Set the account options on the aptly named Account Options screen.
    You might want to reset the Inbox Checking Frequency option to something other than 15 minutes.
    If the account will be your main e-mail account, place a check mark next to the Send Email from This Account By Default option.
  6. Touch the Next button.
  7. Give the account a name and check your own name.
    The account is given the name of the mail server, which may not ring a bell when you receive your e-mail.
    The Your Name field lists your name as it's applied to outgoing messages. So if your name is really, say, Cornelius the Magnificent and not wally78, you can make that change now.
  8. Touch the Next or Done button.
    You're done.

How do I set up a new email account on my tablet

Deborah, you keep asking questions without supplying enough information for people to actually help you. What type of tablet do you have, is it Android, an iPad or Windows it makes a difference. Is your new email something assigned to you by your Internet service provider, your employer or is it something free like gmail, hotmail or yahoo mail? If it is one of the free ones, do you have it already or do you need help setting it up? Are you wanting to access your email with an app or with a browser? Help us help you, be specific and detailed.

I get replies to emails on my nexus tablet but they dont appear in my Apple iPad, can you solve this proble.

Assuming both tablets are set up to access the same email account, go into the setting for that email account on both tablets and make sure they are both set to leave messages on the server. What can happen when accessing the same email account from multiple devices is that the first tablet that checks for new mail (usually done periodically) picks up the message and removes it from the server, then when the next tablet comes along, the message is no longer there so that device does not display it.
