My mother has an Ipad 2 and uses both gmail and aol email accounts. She has had this set up for several months with no issues. Suddenly, a few days ago, the AOL account will no longer send emails. Instead, the email is placed into the Outbox. The gmail account on the Ipad works fine. I logged into her Aol account on the computer and sent emails without problems. I added her AOL account to my Iphone and was able to send emails. On the Ipad, I shut it down, I rebooted it (little white apple logo etc), I deleted the AOL account and reentered it at least 3 or 4 times. The password is correct.
I have exhausted my knowledge of things to try and would really appreciate any thoughts or help you can provide. Given everything that I've tried, it seems to me that the issue is not with AOL in general (since I can send AOL mail from other devices) nor with the IPAD/Wifi etc (since I can send Gmail messages and access web pages.)
