    Hello!

    I'm a newly retired teacher, and I read news on line, and check my email everyday.

    I have an iPad 2, new in Oct 2011. Its been running perfectly until yesterday. In fact, I loved it! Now, I'm just frustrated.

    I loaned it to a friend for a trip. She entered her email info (her own domain) and now the email app comes up blank when tapped. I tried turning off my own email (the default email, gmail) and turning it back on. Now it won't even turn on, just saying it turning on for a long time and then quitting. The app is still blank. I can access my email if I go through Safari, but the convenience of the app is now gone!

    Any help is very welcome! Im optiimistic that somebody else has dealt with this and can help me fix it1 n

    Thanks!

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    So you have cleared her email account out and put your own back in? So it's just the app playing up now? It's a good idea to close the email app completely and relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it. See if it is working now and let us know.
