    Sunds simple, but what if you delete the original mail application, and you
    Want to re install it.
    You go to App Store and look for what ????

    Reason I ask, is a friend of mine upgraded to ios5.
    Now when ever he reply to mail, the target is getting corrupted fonts.
    I want to suggest delete and re install MAIL.
    But what exactly should be re installed ?

    Think before you Sync

    Pre-installed apps cannot be deleted. If you press and hold any icon you'll see that they all start to jiggle but that the pre-installed apps don't have the option to delete them.

    So your friend will have to find another solution..has he tried quitting the app completely in the multi-task bar?

    Thanks.
    Well seems like a real problem. Just got a report from another guy at work with the same issue, after upgrading to iOS5.
    That is why I recommend every one that has iOS4 with a foreign language, to wait and see.
    The English iOS5 is checked
    intensively , while others , I am sure - less.
    It is most definatly because of the changes in FONTS.
    Someone forgot that there are FONTS other then English...

    If a stock app has problems that can not be fixed by closing it or a reset, the only solution (that I know of) is a restore.


    Edit: or maybe reloading the firmware via DFU mode. You'll have to go tot he hacking section for that since I've never had to play with it.

    I doubt you need to reinstall the OS. Before you do that try this:

    Delete the email account from the iPad.

    Power down the iPad and restart.

    Setup the email account again.
