Looks like MobileMe all over again. My wife gets exceed out going messages with the associated emails stuck in the outbox on her iPad. There is no rhyme or reason for this, so I thought I'd delete the iCloud account and then re-set it - an old trick from MobileMe. But I can't find any way to delete the iCloud email. Like a lot of other folks that were bitten by MobileMe, she opened a back-up GMail account which has always worked flawlessly, and with this problem is now straddled between the two.


Her iCloud email works on her Mac just fine. But today her iPhone started the out going messages exceeded nonsense this morning. Whereas I understand Apple's prowess with iCloud iTunes, their email service continues to be problematic, an as such is not ready for mission critical real time.
