    Hi! How are you doing?
    The reason for the can not send e-mail is that you did not input the
    password for outgoing mail.. Your password is same as your e-mail account.
    Just do it as follow;
    1. Click the Setting button on Home Screen
    2. Click on Mail, Contacts, Calendars
    3. Click on specific account that you want to fix
    4. On the near the bottom section you can see "Outgoing Mail Server" and click on
    SMTP
    5. You will see Primary Server- Click on first line. "smtp.live.com" (it will shown
    different depend on mail account)
    6. Then you will see the password section- Please, input your password and click
    Done

    Either password missing, wrong port for SMTP, or some other fu'ed SMTP server issue.
    Set up a Gmail account and write down the SMTP settings, then use these for all other email accounts for sending.

    I'm thinking about making a tutorial for email set up as well. I think it depends on your situation. I have two email accounts both using different outgoing servers. Gmail smtp.gmail.com with your user name, (email account with @gmail.com) and password. Also, you'll need to use port 587 for this connection. Now, if you duplicate these settings on another NONgmail account, your email will show up as coming from gmail. So you'll need another non authenticating SMTP host. That would be, for example, comcast, if you had an account with them. Your setup would be smtp.comcast.net, you'd leave everything else blank and use port 25.

    I hope this helps. As I said, I may make a walk through of these settings soon.

    Just realize the set up is different from my iPhone. For iPad I need user ID and password for outgoing smtp sever. Hope to others who have similiar problem setting up your pop email, please input your user ID and password for smtp outgoing: :)

    Very good guide! Thanks a lot! You helped me fix that problem! You forgot to say that you must restart your iPad, though. So now I'm telling you. :)

    You don't have to restart the iPad.

    I had to. It didn't work before I did, but it worked perfectly once I restarted the iPad.

    Maybe you did, but that is not normal behavior.

    Okay, now I know. I didn't mean to be rude or something. I had to restart mine so I thought that was normal. :)
