    This has happened to me with specific apps now and again. My solution has been to delete and re-install the app and that has fixed it. In your case I would g0 the cold reboot route and see if that doesn't fix things.

    Never heard it called a cold reboot.

    But anyway ~ hold the power button and the home button down at the same time, until you see the Apple logo.

    Let it reboot.

    I'm having this problem too, but only with email. It started suddenly - I've had no problems with email in the six weeks I've had my iPad. Is this a common problem?

    Email quits & goes to home screen

    The same thing is happening on my iPad 2 (64G, WiFi only) with email. It has started in the last week. I've tried shutting down (holding down the power button) and rebooting (holding down the power and home button). I've also tried removing the email account, rebooting, and then setting up the email account again. None of this has solved the problem.

    I can delete several email messages, then it suddenly goes to the home screen. When I go back to email, the deleted messages are back again.

    I have the same iPad, and what you're describing is exactly what happens to me. I delete the same messages over and over, and now it just pops back to the home screen.

    Have you attempted to delete the messages from another device (e.g. Laptop, smartphone) or even from a web interface (if possible). There may be something funny going on with the messages.

    There was one message that said something like "no content found" (or something like that -- I don't remember). Whenever I selected that message was when it would go back to the home screen. After several tries, I was finally able to select and delete the message quickly before the home screen re-appeared. This seems to have solved the problem ... time will tell!
