    I hope one of these suggestions will work for you:

    1. Check your connection. Use Safari to open a web page.

    2. Check your SMTP settings in Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendar - Accounts - your mail account.

    3. Restart the iPad (turn off and on again).

    4. Reboot your iPad (hold Home button and Power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears).

    What Johanna says about checking your SMTP settings is absolutely correct. You may find that you will have to reinstall your email account at worse.

    Hey guys i got a bit more of info...

    "Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:


    Technical details of permanent failure:
    Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain hotmail.com by mx1.hotmail.com. [65.55.92.136].

    The error that the other server returned was:
    550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable"

    Hopefully some of you will know what this means. :)

    Mailbox unavailable:
    9 times out of 10, this means "mailbox not found". It also could mean that there's a problem with your recipients account. Check to make sure that you have the e-mail address correct.


    There could be several other issues why your problem is occurring, such as:

    Mail rejected by Hotmail for policy reasons. Reasons for rejection may be related to content with spam-like characteristics or IP/domain reputation.

    The mail server IP connecting to Hotmail has exhibited namespace mining behavior.

    Your IP address appears to be an open proxy/relay.

    A block has been placed against your IP address because of complaints concerning mail coming from that IP address

    Before you do anything else, create a new gmail/hotmail account on your iPad. Use that to see if there is a problem by sending an email back to yourself. Also, as J.A says, make sure that the recipient to whom you sent the email that first highlighted the problem has no problem with his/her email account. I have found in the past that the port settings for my email account have not been correct. Check all, and I say all of your email account settings again. All in all, if you can establish that a fresh email account works then you are half way to a solution. It is all a process of elimination at this stage. J.A has given you all the possible reasons why email accounts fail. Go through eliminating each one.
    Good luck.

    Hey guys

    Well just to say im able to send e-mails once again, i found this website called SMTP2GO, created a free account and changed my e-mail account settings, the free account allows you to send 20 e-mails a day, its not much but its fixed.
    Thank you for help.

    Regards

    André
