    You don't have to login or logout of any email account, just press the home button to exit the app.

    Do you also access your Yahoo account with an email application on your computer, or via webmail access only using a browser?

    If the former, there is no logout/logoff for the account. The same with the iPad's Mail application.

    thanks but this mean my mail will stay open and any one access the ipad can read it, for now, i delete the account from the setting.

    regard,

    Yes, and this in my view is a priority for Apple to sort out soon. The iPad is a very different device to the iPhone. Lots of people may be using it, and privacy is more or less non-existent.
    It needs User Accounts urgently in my opinion.
    (Yes, I have already sent feedback to Apple on this.)

    You can turn the email account off without deleting the account (before allowing someone to access your iPad that would take it upon themselves to peruse through your email without your permission) so the account can't be checked for new messages, messages can't be sent with the account, and none of the account's mailboxes are available. When you are using the iPad, you can turn the account back on.
  • igmackenzie Level 4 Level 4
    Yes, but is there any security there? As fas as I can see, it's just a case of anyone being able to switch it back on in settings!
  • ipad_user Level 1 Level 1
    yes Allan Sampson, but again; the password is there and if that person just click on the setting and then email and turned it on,, hh every thing will be there for him to read.

    igmackenzie : I am totally agree, iPad team MUST solve this.
  • Allan Sampson Level 10 Level 10
    If I allowed someone to use my iPad and I discovered they were changing settings or turning things on or off and/or reading my email without my permission, that would be the last time they would do so.

    When you allow someone access to your computer, do you require they login to a guest login account you have available for all guests or create a new computer login account for them? If so, you are probably in the extreme minority.
  • Allan Sampson Level 10 Level 10
    Not a chance I would allow anyone to use my iPad, my iPhone, or my computer that would do this.

    If I discovered this, that would be the last time.

    It's just common sense Allan. With the iPad, the likliehood is that - in a family environment, say - several family members will be accessing the device. It is perfectly sensible to allow different Facebook, Twitter, email accounts to be accessible for all who want to use the iPad. It's a huge pain to have to re-login to all these services every time the user changes.
    You're assuming that the device 'belongs' to one person, which as I said, unlike the iPhone, isn't true, IMO.

    No, I am not allowing any one to use my pc, but we are talking about the ipad, the new thing in the market once my brothers and cousins hear that i get one, they will ask me to use it, i will not say no.

    I think it is a shortage in the mail app, and i hope it will be resolve.

    I agree. Everyone wants to see it and use it.

    Be sure to let Apple know what you'd like to have added/changed.

    I am flabbergasted! The appstore account is connected to a creditcard and email address. You can reset the appstore password by email that you cannot logout from. So if logout is not possible, any ipad user can gain access to the appstore and start using the creditcard!? Would it not be extremely easy to have an option that users should type a password before opening mail? Please add this feature at the next update... Or I am missing something?
