    Hay guys My pc was hacked into and crappy emails were sent to all my friends .
    I have since changed my password and it has been fine.. It is a hotmail account.
    The problem I am having is that my hotmail account is now not working on my iPad?....
    I can receive incoming email , but not allowed to send one... Can any one help

    Changing your password means you must change your email settings on the iPad to accommodate.

    Delete the Hotmail account from your iPad and then set up the account again.

    Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > click on the email account > enter your new password.

    You should be able to change your password without deleting anything else. At least it's worked for me repeatedly on several iDevices with an old Hotmail account.

    But if you're able to receive and not send, it's probably more than your password.
