Home network PCs & iPad

Kit: Desktop (Win 7), wireless laptop (Vista), iPad 2, iPod Touch

The laptop commicates wirelessly with the newtwork. My iPod links, through the network, with the desktop PC and I can receive my emails on both.

We each have separate email accounts through the same TalkTalk broadband connection - TalkTalk allows up to 5 email addresses.

My wife, who has the laptop and iPad, cannot receive her emails via the iPad. I wonder whether this is because the iPad cannot connect wirelessly with the laptop.

I think the problem may have emmanated from when my wife set up her email a/c in Outlook on her laptop, and perhaps used a different password. Up to now I have assumed that she would have been obliged to use the same password as I do, since we use the same ISP (TalkTalk) Broadband line. If this is not the case, then she will have to recall the password she used. She can still receive emails on her laptop in Outlook and has set up the iPad details to mirror the Outlook settings.
