    People who receive mails sent from my Ipad say that they get a string of strange characters in the bottom of the main body
    thus cluttering the message. Is there a way to fix this. I am using webmail ( zimbra)
    Cheers

    This makes me think that there is a server signature included in the email. Do you perhaps have a signature set up that has non-starndard characters? Perhaps the server includes an advertisement in the signature portion of the email?

    You should remove that and see if that was the problem. If not, you can restore it. If it ws the problem, you can try to find a way to include that information in a text format that doesn't get mangled. Or, perhaps omit that information if it isn't vital. It's up to you, but removing it and testing will indeed let you know if that was the root of the problem.

    the only way possible was to use the cursor and backspace until all characters got deleted. Is there any other better way than having to select and delete? I can't find a "signature" enable and disable button on the ipad. This signature was actually originally inserted on my office outlook. But when at home I have to log into Zimbra web mail to access my office mail.
