ISO 5 is turning out to be crap. Is there a way to go back to the last version?
First sound goes out, then video goes, continuing crashes worse than windows ever.
Now my email will not send. Says will not authenticate server - any server

Sorry to hear about your poor experience with the iOS 5 upgrade. Unfortunately you cannot revert to an older iOS version.
You may want to try restarting or resetting your iPad, that's resolved problems for a number of folks.
With respect to Mail, check your SSL and Authentication settings to see if they are correct:
- Restart the iPad: Press and hold down the Home button on the front of the iPad for few seconds until the red slider appears, slide this across to shut the iPad down. Restart the iPad by pressing the power button on the top until the Apple logo appears.
- Reset the iPad: If restarting the iPad didn't work then you will need to reset the iPad. You can do this by pressing the Home button and the Sleep/wake button on the top the iPad's case and holding them down together for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo. The iPad should then reset itself. The boot up process will take longer than the restart.
If that doesn't work sometimes deleting and setting up the email account again will work.
- Settings App
- Mail, Contacts, Calendar
- Tap your email account
- Use SSL (if "On" turn "Off" or if "Off, turn "On")
- Authentication (Set as appropriate, generally to use Password)
Hope that helps and let us know how it goes.
Welcome again and enjoy!

I upgraded a week ago to iSO 5 on my iPad. It worked fine until yesterday. I've rebooted several times. That fixed the sound problem. Later a reboot fixed the video. The mail issue I cannot solve. There is no reason for it. Nothing has been changed from when it worked correctly yesterday. It receives email, but will not recognize any email server I send out. Even replays. I guess I'll have to move to android phone.
Reboot = restart
Looked at all settings. Same as the have bee and are correct
It says "server xxxxx rejected" I tried it with 8 different email from different people
Don't know why or how to fix.
Everything goes to outbox an outbox freezes or crashes when you try to send fom ther.
It worked fine yesterday
I just meant that I guess I'll need another way to use email now
The mail problem is a settings or server issue. If you only have one email account on your iPad you only have one mail server to "try"...where other emails came from or are going to won't make any difference. If the mail server can't authenticate your email account it won't allow you to send anything (to anyone). As mentioned above, check your authentication settings. That it worked yesterday may mean that there's something wrong with your mail account and/or with your ISP's mail server. To find out, check and see if everything is good on a computer. If so, match up your iPad's settings with those on the computer. If you can't send mail from your computer, it's a server issue and nothing to do with your iPad.
Again, it may mean deleting and setting up your email account on your iPad to clean things up...data on any computer can get corrupted.
I'd still try resetting your iPad first though.
