    Sync Mail between iPad and Macbook
    Scenario - Macbook is powered down. E-mail comes in and is read on the iPad with the mail app. Put the iPad down and 15 minutes later (or so) power up the Macbook. I want to see the message as read on the laptop. Possible with the default Apple mail applications? Maybe from my ISP?

    Check with your ISP to see if they allow accessing your account using IMap rather than PoP. GMail can be set to IMap along with several other providers.

    Regards.

    Like chscag said - you need IMAP. This is really the best way to use email if you're using multiple devices. Personally, I prefer Gmail - it's free and works well. All my devices like Mail App on MBP, iPhone and iPad are always synchronized, all done on the server end at gmail - you don't need to do anything on your end except set up the mail account(s) on the devices.
