    If you can't find them in your account's Drafts folder, they're gone.

    Try resetting your iPad (Home and Power button), perhaps this will help.

    You started another thread today in which you said:

    I've moved that post here as making more than one post not only fragments the conversation and makes it hard to follow - it's against the forum rules. Please keep any follow-ups, discussion or updates on this topic to this thread; do not start another. Thanks for your understanding.

    And - I cannot duplicate your issue. When I try to use the sharing options as you've described, I can/do create and send an e-mail.

    As a workaround, may I suggest you try copying the link and then opening the Mail app to post from there? Yes, I know it's a bit of a kludge, but at least it'll work...

    Sorry to not be of better assistance.

    If by Reboot you mean just turning the iPad off and then later turning it on again then that isn't the same as a Reset.

    To Reset, hold the home and power button down until the Apple logo appears (the screen will go dark first), then release the buttons and leave the iPad alone for a while as it may take much longer to Reset than merely Reboot.

    Have no idea when people say use another os. That is crazy. First I cannot duplicate your issue I can send emails without issue from both safari and Google. So let's look at what maybe causing it. First have you removed the mail, Safari, and Google app from multitask window. Have you completed a hard rest as recommended above. Go into safari preferences and remove web site data not need by swiping left. Try the above and get back to us
