    Ok this is very strange, annoying and quite frankly outrageous - please help.

    Some months ago I sent 3 emails from my msn hotmail account (whilst logged into safari on my ipad) later that night my husband presented me with the iPad and showed me his email account, Yahoo which is always set as the default email account and always open on the iPad.

    My emails appeared in his 'sent' box and also one was received in his 'in' box as it had been undelivered. They were emails I definitely did NOT want my husband to see!!!! and this cause me a lot of problems, distress and stress!!!

    I did drop in to local apple store, complained and explained to assistant who couldn't explain why and I put it down to being unlucky, iPad doing something flukey.

    Now tonight, I went onto safari, logged into my work email account (college intranet account) and sent a retired colleague an email.

    I just looked at my husbands yahoo 'sent' box and my email is there!!!!!! Apparently coming from my husbands yahoo email account and no sign of my work email address?????My colleague now has my husbands private email address which she may reply to, not my address which it was sent from.

    What is going on?

    How can I ever trust our iPad again? How can I send any confidential, private emails without this huge, massive hiccup.
    It just isn't right. Please please can anyone help me. I do not want to use my iPad again for any emails, private or
    otherwise.

    If you want confidentiality, best get your own iPad, or one for your husband. They're meant to be personal devices.

    Well that is one solution, but finances don't allow for such luxuries. We won't be buying apple again and I would never recommend one
    ... still, doesn't answer my question!

    But Thank you for your .... Comment.

    What, whose problem is it?
    I have never experienced this problem with a laptop?

    You aren't explaining why ......

    When you have multiple accounts on your iOS device, one of them will be the default, meaning that any mail sent will be using that account.

    If you want to use another account for sending your email, you need to tap the sender email in the From field and select the appropriate account. I use my iPhone with my personal and business account, by default, everything is done with my personal account, but when writing to a customer, I have to manually switch the sender to my business account.

    Replying to an email will use the account it was sent to.

    Another way is to select your account in the mailbox list and go from there. The selected mailbox account will also ensure that the email will be sent with this one instead of the default one.

    thank you but still doesn't really make sense.

    if the yahoo default account is open on the iPad (set up and opened via the email settings of the iPad) but I log onto internet via safari into my personal msn hotmail account are you saying it will, can and should come from the default yahoo account! ?

    why on earth should it work like that?

    I am obviously a novice and very naive - I thought different email providers, accounts, separate, personal log-ins meant 'personal'
    email - obviously not so!
