    Mail is scaring me.

    It shows me previews of emails which are not mine. I have included a screenshot of Mail (blurred all personal info though). Anyway, the email from Zagg in the preview addresses a different person than the actual email does and the order number is different, too.

    Any idea, as to what is going on?

    I usually just ignore most my emails. Today was the first time I noticed this inconsistency.
    There are three Exchange accounts setup, Gmail, Nemo and Hotmail, this last one is which received the email from Zagg.

    By connecting to an ISP, what do you mean exactly? Hotmail isn't tied to any specific ISP, but I am currently at home.

    An iPad reboot and Mail restart has not fixed anything.

    The thing that worries me, if I receive someone else's email, than someone else might receive my emails too.

    In any case, thank you for these suggestions.

    I tried googling your issue, and this happened to some people using droids, and deleting and re-adding the email account on the phone may have fixed it for them. I believe that's going beyond the mail restart. They attributed it to a caching issue.

    I doubt it has anything to do with the iPad, unless going to Hotmails' web site gives you a different result.

    Most likely, ZAGG is messing up their mailing list.

    Or, you're the intended victim of a spear phishing attack. Don't click on any of those links.

    Less likely, your Hotmail account is compromised and someone used it to order a ZAGG keyboard. Change your password.

    Even less likely, Hotmail's servers are really messed up. Nothing you can do except complain.
