    If I reply or send a new email from my iPad is there a way to ensure that
    the email also shows up on my macBook. Any mail I receive and view on my
    iPad still shows on my macBook when I log on there but not any that I have
    sent.

    To expand on this - to the OP - what you are asking depends on how
    you've got your mail set up and what kind of server you are using.

    If you're using POP and have the iPad set to "leave mail on server"
    that would probably lead to the behavior you're seeing. There may
    be another way, but that's the obvious one.

    Anyway, POP's just not a great way to do this. IMAP is a protocol
    made specifically for dealing with a central mail store which is
    accessed and managed from multiple clients. So use IMAP if you
    aren't. And if you are already, then we'll need to know more
    about what you've got going on to give you more useful advice, I
    think.

    It is easy Lynn

    Just go to Settings, Mail etc, click on your account, choose advanced,
    set REMOVE FROM SERVER to NEVER

    That will ensure all the mail you recieve will still be on your other
    computer

    Then simply BCC yourself - go to Settings, Mail etc, and set ALWAYS BCC
    MySELF to on

    That will send a copy of everything you send to your computers - you
    just delete the copy that appears on your iPad

    Exactly. Which is why you should not use POP at all. Period.

    I noticed that immediately, so I changed my settings to email me a copy
    of any mail I send from the iPad.

    Use a mail server that supports IMAP and insure both email clients are
    configured save a copy into a "sent" folder.

    My experience is different to that. I read and send mail, at various
    times, on my iMac, my MacBook Pro, my iPhone, and my iPad. However the
    Master file of all my received and sent emails is on my iMac

    I just have the pop accounts on the other machines set up to leave read
    emails on the server, and I bcc all emails to myself.

    That way the iMac has copies of everything
