I'm not sure what is wrong here but my emails sent from computer or iPhone are not showing up in old or sent folders. I have aol and yahoo mail accounts. Any email sent via aol from my computer show up on my iPhone in the sent folder but not on my iPad. Also at times old mail will not show up either and once in awhile new mail will not show up on iPad either. This just won't do, this is really important to me. Any advice?
On the home page of my ipad2' a few centimetres above the email folder and the Photos folder, there are 3 tiny icons, one is a magnifying glass (like a search icon) and the others are 2 small circles. I never see the magnifying glass highlighted but the small circles are sometimes highlighted, but not all at once. This is driving me mad trying to find out what they are - does anyone know?
I use Dropbox a lot, and aside from the occasional hiccup it syncs fine across my devices.
I added a folder called "iPad sharing", specifically to be able to get content from my iMac to my iPad. I created the folder on my iMac, and it shows up in DB online and on all my devices, except for my iPad. All other DB folders (and the content in them) display fine on my iPad.
In my iTunes, I set "C:Documents and Settingszang.MIKEZANGMy DocumentsMy MusiciTunesiTunes Music" as my music media folder, there are 4 ma4 files in Mozart folder, but I can view 5 files(2 are the same files) on my iPad after sync.
I have gone to iTunes and chosen a app. Apps that claim the following: (Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Require iOS 3.1 or later) Once they are downloaded they show up in the iPhone, iPod and iTouch panel view an not in the iPad folder or the iPad, iTouch, iPhone or iPod panel view.
installed "My Secret Folder" app (free - limited use) to trial run it. I now have to necessarily have this type of password protected folder as I am having image files/pdf files of contract documents and I would like to have them on my iPad for easy reference when I don't carry my laptop where these aare password protected. As these contract documents are confidential I would not like others to see this. I share this iPad with two of my staff for my office's professional use.
When I installed this app, I found lot of ads coming. But the app itself was functioning okay. I thought of purchasing the pro version. So to uninstall it I opened the iPad through iTunes. But to my surprise, I could not find this particular app alone listed under apps. So how do I uninstall this? Why dose it not show in iTunes?
Does this app jailbreak? I do not want to jailbreak my iPad. (if it has already happened by installing the free version of this app, how do I reverse it. I do not want my iPad to be jailbroken).
Any very safe app to password protect images & pdf files - no need for .doc or .xls files - only image & pdf files. The app must not require jailbreaking. I'll forget copying these files on iPad.
I like the idea of using Notification Center to give me a small alert when I get an email but am using another app. But I am getting alerts (appear as a momentary bar at the top of the screen) for new emails even when email isn't running. This confuses me as I wouldn't think the email client is checking for mail or knowing any exists on the server unless it is running.
Can I turn this off or otherwise configure it differently? email is not running. I know how to close apps and am sure it is not running.
Set up IMAP account on iPad and SENT folder is not visible I'm able to send emails from iPad but not able to view the SENT folder...I can only see the INBOX. I initially had this account set up as a POP account and disabled the POP account to use IMAP account instead...all the setting are the same (except for port #'s)...same incoming and outgoing server.
Email is by far my biggest disappointment with the iPad. The way it works is functionally useless for me. It seems that iOS email is very rigidly designed to work in one specific way. That is, you are expected to have a single inbox where every email gets delivered to and once you review each email you either delete it or move it elsewhere. Is that how most of you use email?
I have an IMAP server for my email. In the past I had server side software (maildrop) that would presort my email into various folders as it arrived. When I opened email on my Mac it would check each folder for unread messages and put the little number total next each folder name. I also used a smart folder that showed me a consolidated list of all the unread messages for easy access.
Enter the iPad. This process obviously doesn't work well on the iPad because it only checks for new messages in a folder when that folder is opened. And even then the new messages need to be within the 200 message download limit before mail would find and tag it. With the iPad I have to manually open each folder to see if there are any new messages.
Then there's the issue that you can't collapse the folder hierarchy so you have to scroll through every single folder and sub-folder looking for the folder you want.
So, to fix the issue of scattered unread messages I decided to switch from server-side sorting to client-side sorting and I duplicated all my maildrop rules as Apple Mail rules. Now when I open Mail on my Mac the messages are filed away just as they were before, only it's done right at that moment. This way I still have the problem on the iPad of finding unread messages that have already been received and sorted, but new messages that I receive while using the iPad will be easily found in the inbox.
This does work in that mail received by the iPad go into the inbox. However, when I jump back over to my Mac all the new messages don't get sorted because the rules only apply to incoming messages and the messages that came in while using mail on the iPad are already in a "received" state. So now I'm left with unsorted messages in the inbox. I actually knew that was going to happen but I had to try anyway.
In the end, email on the iPad is completely useless to me which is a major disappointment. Mobile email would seem to be one of the major selling points. Since the email client has been around on the iPhone for several years now I have no reason to believe it will ever be improved. There aren't any third party email clients in the App Store either, and I'm not sure Apple would accept one if there was.
Well I guess downloading and being the first one to use these software rollouts is not a great idea. I have an iPad with WiFi and 3G. I rely heavily on my iPad for email. Here are the issues that I can concur with other users: 1. Main email account sometimes sends email and sometimes gets hung up. If I switch off the wifi and turn it back on or 3G it will send out. If I cc a copy to myself it sometimes winds up in a spam folder. This is a Yahoo email account. The solution: open the Yahoo email account in Safari and view as a web page. To send emails shut the wifi off and turn it on see if that "reboots" the email.
Apple must come up with an email fix to this ASAP -- it is possible there is a compatibility issue with Yahoo and the new iOS4 or the Mobile Me that I downloaded
2. Email in the "drafts" folder cannot be sent or moved to the "inbox" to resend when ready
3. Emails being sent to my Yahoo account are received
When I want to send an email to a particular friend, I start typing his name and two contacts for him show up. One is correct the other was mistyped and is incorrect. I want to delete the incorrect version. When I go to the contacts app, only the correct contact is shown. The other is in Never Never Land. Does anyone know how to get rid of the incorrect email contact?
I have recently updated my ipad with the 4.3 OS and since then while looking at my emails, i opened a folder that contained quite important saved emails and they disappeared before my eyes and then the same happened with another folder. The folders are still there but no contents! I have tried the usual reset etc but they haven't reappeared. Not sure if this has anything to do with 4.3
An extra folder, which is not part of my Hotmail account, has appeared on my iPad email account. I have deleted and set up again but it is still there and I don't know how to get rid of it. I have tried deleting the folder when accessing my mail in iPad but no success.
I had my email set up at pop3 email and I changed it to imap. When I delete an email it says it can't move it to the trash folder..... I want to use imap so when I delete email on my cell it deletes it on my iPad....
I am using gmail and am accessing it on the Internet. I will be traveling, and I want to move some email into my Personal folder. I do that easily on the computer, and I figured out how to view the folder, but I cannot find the move button.
I have an iPad 2. I occasionally delete an email accidentally. When I go to the Trash Folder, I can see the email for about <1sec and then it disappears. It's almost like the folder has an auto-empty on view setting somewhere. I cannot find any setting that controls how long trash stays in the Trash folder. Where this is set?
A kind of strange, and seemingly anomalous occurrence happened with the iPad email program.
I sent myself an email last night using the "share" function of the browser, and while it shows in the "Sent" folder of the email program, the email never arrived.
Outside of my ISP blocking this email (no idea why they would), this email did not make it through. I have tried my Outlook client on my home laptop, the iPad itself, and webmail but this thing just never made it through.
