I've found that "sent" messages for the last two days didn't go anywhere. They're sitting in the Outbox. Is there a way to push them out? Thanks.

    Open your Outbox to show your unsent emails.  Then, one at a time, double click on one of the emails in the right hand pane and that will open that email and bring up the "Send" icon again in the upper left hand corner of that email.  Click the "Send" icon.

    Are any of them over 10mb or so?

    Tried resending. The messages still sit there.

    All the messages are quite small.

    I Have no solutions. I want to ask the question again and see if anyone ever received an answer that worked for this. So far all I see is questions, questions, questions about mail stuck in outbox. I discovered this problem belatedly--that is, I didn't know the addressees had not received them---because I normally use my yahoo mail accessed thru my yahoo homepage rather than the ipad app which I had trouble with and was concerned that it was not really closing. There was no "outbox" in my yahoo mail, but I discovered this outbox thing in the ipad app which only had mail from months before except for these "stuck" mails in the outbox. The apple support site was no help at all and did not even really address the problem. I guess it's too late to make a long story short, but here is my dilemma: I see plenty of iterations of this problem when I search google, but never see a solution that works. I am ****** that I will probably have to pay apple to resolve a problem that is clearly the result of a glitch---one of many---in ipad, but I am hoping that before I resort to that someone out there will have an answer.
