Mail and Mail Settings will not open
I have a new iPad2 for a week or so now. I'm new to iPad, do not have an iPhone, but do have Mac experience.
I got the iPad2 connected to our wireless network, set up email in Mail and have down loaded some apps, surfed via Safari, etc., all with no difficulty. Mail has been working fine both sending and receiving, then all of a sudden stopped working today.
Mail sort of opens up, but there's no messages visible and nothing else except the empty Mail screen, and there's no functionality from there. It appears to be frozen. the only thing that can be done from there is tap the home button and go to the home page. The Mail app button shows 14 - I assume new/unread messages?, but none of them show in the Mail screen when I tap it.
I thought there might be a Mail Setting problem, but Mail Settings will not open either. Other settings do open, just not Mail Settings.
Safari and other apps work fine, so I don't think there's a problem with my ISP (Hughesnet - Satellite system) which is also my email host.
Can anyone help me with this? Thanks, gmhd404
