    The mail app that comes on the iPad has been working fine up until now.

    I just got an error telling me that either my username or password was incorrect for my hotmail email, so I decided to reset my password just in case. After doing so I typed in the correct information and received the error once again.

    Everything I've tried hasn't worked. (I.e. I reset the password, removed it and readded it, hard closed the app and tried again, and rebooted the iPad)

    Anyone know a fix?

    Try deleting the account on the iPad and adding it again, with the new password.

    Hi guys, in my case, when i open the email add, and the screen is already showing my email, screen suddenly becomes unresponsive no matter what i do. I already disabled the acct and gave it a break afterwhich i added it again, new emails come in but same thing happens, can't access my mail. Appreciate if anyone knows how to fix it. Thanks

    Great! I was going to suggest that you 'Restart' or 'Reset' the iPad; another option when an app is not functioning is to try a 'force close', i.e. open the multi-taskbar (double tap the home button), then press & hold the offending app until the icon jiggles, press the minus sign; return to the home screen and try again - just an additional suggestion - hope all continues to work well & welcome to the forum! :)

    Hello - your left a post in an 18 month old thread - may not get muct attention: BUT, I would suggest that you first delete your Gmail account from the iPad, then set it up again (make sure that your IMAP & SMTP settings are correct) - if this does not solve your issue, then please post a new thread for others to see - good luck! Dave :)

    There was a service disruption when you posted this. It should work again in the meantime, afaik.
