Please someone help my before I go mad!!!

My parents have just purchased a new iPad which they love. However, their email address is with and I'm having trouble setting this up. I can go through all the set up with with passwords and pop3 etc but it hangs on the verifying screen then just says " couldn't connect to server, please check settings blah blah". Has anyone successfully managed this. I've set them up with a temp gmail but they really want original.
Any help mucho appreciated

No experience of that service and really imap is the way to go, but you could retain the original by setting up a gmail a/c for them and having that a/c poll the PO pop3 a/c. Set it up to reply from the gmail a/c and over time they'll get transferred without realising it.
