    I tried using Sparrow for mail and I thought it was pretty good, so I set all my mail accounts to inactive in settings, but when I try to send an email from an app such as Pulse, I get a popup saying there is no mail account setup. Do I need to keep a "default" email account in the iPad mail just for this purpose or is there a way to point apps to use Sparrow? If I setup an account in Mail though, any replies got to the default Mail account. I guess I would have to setup the account in both Mail and Sparrow and hop back and forth between the two.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Unfortunately, yes, you will have to have a default mail account set up (within the Mail app) in order to send e-mails outside of your Sparrow e-mail app. The iPad defaults to using the Mail program for sending e-mails from another app - if there is no account set up, it will not work (as you have seen).
