iPad Tip 7 - Preview Mail

By default, iPad's email app is configured to show only 2 lines, probably a hold-over from
iPhone, but impractically small for iPad.
Go to Settings | Mail, Contacts and Calendars and select "5 lines" under Preview. Also, while
you're at it, you might want to update your Push email from "Manual" if you like to have your
messages waiting when you open the Mail app. Note - push features tend to drain battery power
a bit more quickly.
