    What causes a gmail database to be stored on my Ipad? The @gmail.com address is not my own and I am wondering how it ended up on my Ipad.

    Thanks!

    If anyone else went to the Google site and accessed GMail, that might do it. Or even visiting the site, but not login into an account might. It's Safari thing, not a mail thing.

    This is what Apple has to say about the database in Safari 5, for OS X. It should be the same for the iPad.

    My guess is that when you are editing an email or other text field/document in Safari, the site may store it as a database localy for speed and reliablity.
