How can I change my E-Mail settings from POP to IMAP on my iPAD?

When I delete E-Mails in my iPAD they are still on my computer.  How can I change my E-Mail settings from POP to IMAP so that when I delete E-Mails on my computer or on my iPAD they are deleted on my computer AND my iPAD?

Re: How can I change my E-Mail settings from POP to IMAP on my iPAD?

All you need to do is re-create the account on the iPad and let it auto-configure it for you.  Comcast accounts are IMAP compliant by default and iOS will configure it accordingly.  Use the same password and ID.  Once you have the new version of the account up and running, you can go back and delete the POP3 version.
