I have an email account with Optimum Online. This account - a POP account - works fine on my Mac and my iPhone. Since upgrading to iOS 4.2.1 on my iPad, I can't get or send email on this account. I tried deleting the account and adding it back, and now I can't add it back. First it tells me that SSL doesn't work with my SMTP server, then it fails to verify the account with the POP server.
I went on the webmail for Optimum Online to verify that I have the correct password, and I do.
Next I tried to add this account to my son's iPad, which is also running iOS 4.2.1, and which runs various POP and IMAP accounts without a problem. I was unable to add the account to his iPad either, which has had no other problems with 4.2.1.
I also tried this while connected to wifi as well as when connected to 3G with good signal.
This tells me that my iPad is OK, but that there may be an issue with Optimum Online POP accounts and iOS 4.2.1 for iPad. I was able to add this account to my iPhone running iOS 4.2.1.
Any suggestions? This is very frustrating.

iPad, iOS 4, 64GB 3G/Wifi
