This is one of them problems with lots of potential causes, but I have to start asking somewhere.

 

I am in a temporary work location.  There is no wireless access available, but there is an available copper connection.

I plug my trusty old G4 Titanium PowerBook into the ethernet and configure it to share the connection thru its AirPort Card to my iPad (original)

 

I can get to web sites with iPad Safari, so that says that the connection is working, but the iPad Mail app cannot connect to anything.  It sits and spins and then says "The mail server "mail.whatever.org" is not responding.  Verify that you have entered the correct account info into Mail settings."

 

I know the Mail info is correct because it will connect and operate with no problem when I am at home, connecting to my own AirPort network.

 

Any ideas or suggestions ?
