    I have the same problem. Bookmarks used to sync from to the iPad until I went IMAP. I sync everything among two Macs, an iPhone, and iPad and everything syncs but the bookmarks on the iPad.

    I've turned syncing on/off, deleted iPad bookmarks, and everything else I can think of.

    What next?

    It would be nice if someone from Apple would step forward with a solution. With a brand new IMAC with the latest OS and brand new IPAD, this should not be a problem.

    This is a user-to-user forum. No one from Apple is going to answer you here. If you want Apple Tech Support, use th Contact Us link at the lower right corner of every page. There are, however, lots of knowledgeable people here and one of them may be able to answer your question. While you're waiting, you may want to try out the Search Discussions box up and to the right. Your question may have already been asked and answered.

    You may also want to review the iPad User Manual, which has instructions on syncing. It comes pre-bookmarked in Safari on the iPad and can also be downloaded as an ebook I iBooks.

    Best of luck.
