    For some reason I can't use the stock email on my iPad 3... I keep getting an invalid password message when I know it's right. It works with the gmail app though, but the tinkerer in me wants to figure out why I can't get it to recognize it and work right

    You Internet Service Provider would normally process your emails re the inbuilt iPad "Mail" app. Check the correctness of account settings (user name, password) by tapping "Settings" , then "Mail, Contact, Calendars" and check it's what your ISP needs to send you the emails. Your Gmail app may not have the same account settings.

    Not really sure where I would do this at. I have time Warner cable.

    On your iPad in Settings>Mail you will see who is recorded as your ISP (in small print "For Mail and Notes"). Make sure Mail is "On" and that you have keyed in the correct mail settings provided by your ISP when you first set up your Account. Hope this helps.
    Regards, Andrew

    I couldn't find this but I just deleted all my email accounts and re-added. I think the issue was I used to have a mobile verification required on my gmail account.

    Looks like you might have fixed it. If so I'm glad.
    All the best, Andrew
