    Is AOL your email service provider? If so, of course, that's the reason. A way around this is to open a gmail account and to use gmail for sending your mail, but AOL for receiving your mail - since mail received on your gmail account can be automatically forwarded to your AOL account.

    On the iPad there's no way to send from your AOL account but to use a 'reply to' address that's different from aol.com (you can do this on a PC but not on the iPad).
