    Hello everyone,
    while using the mail app I noticed more options across the top of the emails. This was brief,because when I looked again, they were gone.

    does anyone have any ideas ( besides me going crazy ) that would result in there being more labels across the top of the emails. for instance, there was a to and from label etc...

    Probably not explained well, but I hope you get the idea.
    Thanks
    Alan

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    But it wasn't really a problem. The app is working fine and in fact I would welcome the headings / labels.

    I'm a little confused by your comments on the "extra" labels.

    When I look at my e-mail in landscape mode, I see the left side, which contains all my e-mails. Then, on the right is an opened e-mail. At the top is the "From," "To" blocks, as standard.

    In addition, the is a blue "Hide" at the top right of the e-mail. Pressing on that removes the "From" part of the e-mail (and Hide changes to "Details"). Could that be what you mean?

    Also, there's a Settings part for the Mail - you could have some switches turned on (or off). Maybe take a look in there? For example, one of the switches can allow you to "Show To/CC Label." Maybe that's it...?

    IOW - need more info on the extra stuff you saw - cause what you describe as extra ... I have.

    as it was fleeting, all I can remember is that the extra labels were on the grey bar at the top, to the left of where the bin icon and the reply icon are found.

    It was only the for a few seconds, I thought it was maybe due to an update of some sort, but on further investigation the didn't seem to be any updates.
    Sorry. Cannot give more info....

    As Marilyn suggested, this wasn't simply a side-effect of moving from portrait to landscape mode?

    I just by accident worked it out.
    If you click on the search window extra options appear at the top of the email list.

    Weird.
