    Everytime that I try to run the email app, the app screen comes on momentarily and then I get "thrown out" and back to the home screen. :mad:
    What is going on, how can I fix the problem?

    Try resetting your iPad by pressing sleep button and home button at the same time till apple logo shows up. See if this works first.

    if resetting doesnt work, you might need to restore your ipad in itunes. just remember to backup the ipad, by right clicking on the ipad in the left column and choose Backup.

    I am glad u brought this up because I am having the same problem except I am able to stay in the app for a while then I get thrown out to the home screen. I just so hope this is not a problem with my ipad, due to the fact this is already my second one.

    Not a hardware problem, very much a software glitch!

    Thanks Max, restoring the iPad took care of the issue. Hopefully the problem won't happen again, as I am very happy having bought one, it helps me on my job and personal life. Again, thanks for your help.

    Email issues

    I have a similar problem. I have email with a PDF attached that will not open or let me delete it. It hangs for a while and then shuts off the email program. There are two like this. I have received the earlier version of these PDFs from the same source and they opened fine. Anyone think re-setting is the answer? Hate to do as I did on another issue and it messes up settings, etc.

    I have the same problem! I have 2 email addresses. One is gmail and one is with my email server through IMAP. The gmail works fine, but as soon as I open my email in my Zimbra server, iPad mail closes and return to home screen. I am not happy to see the mighty iPad can handle all those 3d games, but can not read the simple mail messages.

    Delete the email account having issues and add it again. One of it's configurations could have gotten messed up some how.
