Question: Why can't I send Emails from iPad apps?

When I am using iBooks, or Evernote, or Hootsuite, or just about any application on my iPad that allows me to Email items from within the application, the following happens when I try to send an Email:


1) I click the share button.

2) Choose Emaill

3) Write the Email.

4) Click Send

5) Hear swoosh sound and it appears the Email is sent.


However, the Email is never actually sent. I've tested this mutiple times to various Email addresses and it just isn't sending the Email. The only exception is when I send Emails from within the Gmail app, in which case they send fine.


After discovering this I took our my iPhone 5 and tried to do the same from there with the same applications. I was able to send Emails from within the iPhone applications just fine so this problem is specific to my iPad.


I checked my mail settings and didn't see anything out of order. As I said, I can successfully send Email from the iPad using the Gmail app or just sending it from within a Chrome window.


Thoughts?

iPad 2, iOS 6.0.1

Answer:

I fixed this problem. In my case I was using the GMail app and I NEVER used Apple's Mail app that came with my iPad. So I had been checking all my settings for the Gmail app and I was ignoring the settings on Apple's Mail app. It turns out that even if you never use Apple's Mail app, other apps DO use Apple's Mail app when they send Email from within their repsective applications.


So I'm guessing you aren't using Apple's Mail app and you've therefore ignored the settings on that app. Fix all those settings and you should be fine.

I used to be able to send e-mail from within apps on my iPad. Then all of a sudden, I was unable to do it. I changed none of my settings, and my regular e-mail works just fine. One day I could e-mail from within apps, and then next I could not.


When I hit the share button within an app, I then select the e-mail button. An e-mail message opens for composition. It has the subject line filled in, but that's all. It will not allow me to enter the address and it contains no message or link. It's just dead. Sometimes I wait for a while to see if anything changes, but it doesn't.


Did apple change something without telling us?

Finally solved it! I opened up the apple mail app, a dialog box came up saying the username or password were incorrect, I selected the settings option which opened up settings and asked me to correct my gmail user name and password. I had forgotten that I had changed my gmail password recently!
