    Are you using the built in mail app? If so, have you tried deleting the email account, then setting it up again? This may help if something became corrupted or didn't install properly.

    In Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars under Fetch New Data, make sure your iCloud account is set to Push.

    Also, open Safari and make sure you can browse the internet. Mail does not come from your computer, but directly from the internet.

    Please provide some additional information: 1) What iPad model do you own; 2) What iOS is installed; and 3) Do you use a router for your Wi-Fi network? From your previous responses, your iPad does not seem to be connected to the internet like your other devices.

    I would suggest that your 'Reset' the iPad (i.e. hold the ON-OFF & HOME buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, release both and wait for a reboot - your apps, data, settings are all preserved). Also, power recycle your modem/router (may be one or two units), i.e. turn both off (or pull the power plugs), wait awhile, first re-power the modem, then the router (or just one if both in the same unit). Make sure that Wi-Fi is activated on the iPad in Settings, then try to browse the web w/ Safari (or any other browser) - if you are able to get onto the internet, then check you mail. Let us know if any of these suggestions helps. Dave :)

    Then you need to solve the internet connectivity issue first, before you can determine whether Mail is working.

    First, go to Settings > Wi-Fi and make sure your iPad says it is connected to your network. Being connected to your wi-fi network does not guarantee that you'll have internet, but not being connected will certainly prevent it.

    If it is connected, tap on the (i) icon and Forget Network.

    If it is not, go to Settings > General > Reset and choose Reset Network Settings.

    Now turn off your router and your wi-fi (these may be the same box, or not).

    While the router is off, reset your iPad by holding the Home and Power buttons until the Apple logo appears, release and let it reboot.

    After a minute or so turn the router and wi-fi back on. If they are separate, turing the router on first can sometimes make a difference.

    When both the iPad, router, and wi-fi indicate they are back up, go to Settings > Wi-Fi and join your network.


    If this does not work or does not continue to work let us know. It may be necessary to update the router (through your manufacturer's support site), or change some settings. Or it could be another problem altogether. I'm just guessing based on one of the most common causes of iPad's losing their internet connection, even though it looks like they are connected to wi-fi.

    Edit: I really should have read giradman post first, and waited for your responce. Oh well.

    Hey TP - well at least we're thinking the same, so maybe on the right track! ;)

    Yep, I was waiting until the OP responded before carrying the steps you recommended further, such as forgetting & resetting the network settings - SO, to the OP, if my suggestions don't help, then follow those next steps - Dave :)
