mail on ipad

I want to setup a pop3 mail account on my ipad.  I only want to receive messages from senders who are in my contacts.  Is this possible to configure on the ipad?

POP3 will always download ALL emails in the Inbox.  You cannot pre-filter the results to ONLY download certain emails.

You'll need to do something like strung suggests or you can do the same thing with any web-based email service (GMAIL, HOTMAIL etc)

You'll need to have 2 POP3 accounts .. on account 1 you setup a rule to forward emails to account 2 ONLY if they are from your chosen contacts using a Rule or Filter.   You then setup account 2 as POP3 on your iPad.

So far as I know (I have an iPhone with POP3 email), the email you get on your iPhone is the same as the email you get on your computer. At least it is for me.

I have decided to setup the account in gmail and then use the strong filtering in gmail to forward to my primary account.
