Unable To Delete The Mail / It Keeps Coming Back

I am using the ipad (wifi) with our exchange server. When I am offline, and try and delete an email, it pops back into the inbox with a message "cannot delete mail". Why?? Is my ipad misconfigured, or is this a problem with the ipad?

I travel frequently (in areas without wifi or 3g, like planes). If I can't use my email offline, seems like a huge problem with the ipad. I will need to carry around a laptop to do offline mail.

Deleted Apps Keep Coming Back
I've deleted two apps on my iPad -- Fantapper and Mars Globe. Both of them keep coming back. Every time I go to download updates via iTunes, Fantapper always starts downloading. I delete it from there, it comes back. I've deleted it from the Apps area of iTunes too (and also removed it from the iPad). I even went so far as to find the actual Fantapper file on the filesystem and delete it and it STILL KEEPS COMING BACK.

Different Noise Coming From Back Panel?
So I recently purchased a new iPad, however a strange noise just started coming from the back of the iPad whenever I put gentle to moderate pressure on it. The noise that comes from it sounds like something is un-sticking itself. Everything else functions fine, it's just this annoying noise.

ITunes Kept Coming Back With Incorrect Password
Does my email password have to be the same as my iTunes pass code? I have not been getting any incoming emails on iPad 2 and for whatever reason, my Apple Id had to be changed. I didn't prompt it, but iTunes kept coming back with incorrect password.

Viewing Numbers Documenys In Mail Doesn't Allow Go Back To Other Mail
Whenever I get an email with a numbers document in it and I open it and view it in the mail message it only allows you to go through the various sheets to view what is included in the document. However, you cannot get back to your other messages, or any other mail options. If you close mail and re open it it'll take you into that message automatically. The only way I've found to get mail to work again is to restart the iPad. This is an extremely annoying problem. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, any suggestions on fixing it?

Get Mail Back Operating?
I created a response to an email message earlier today. When I sent it, it was refused. I know the email address is good because I email this person frequently.† The message on the screen said it placed the message in my Outbox. Attempts to send the message from the Outbox gave the same results. I then decided that I would copy it, and start a new message. When I did the Select All and then touched Copy I could not do anything except put the keyboard away everything was grayed out. I went back to the Home page, and restarted Mail. It came up OK so I made a second attempt at copying and pasteing. This time I am froze in my Outbox with the message showing. Again everything appears grayed out. How can I get Mail back operating?

Mail Xls Attachment Opened With Number -> No Way Back!
I have the iPad since a week now and I am currently the first time completely stranded.

I have installed numbers, opened a e-mail with an Windows excel spreadsheet attachment and then selected -> Open attachment with Numbers. Very cool, I can work the table. I left the table open by clicking the "button" to look up some information in an other app.

Very uncool: When I do open Mail now, it only shows the table (and nothing else), but in a read only mode (I cannot edit cells) and there absolutely no way to go back to the inbox or the other mail folders. I can only hit the button and exit, but when I hit Mail again, it will only show the table. No way back?!

Any idea how to get out of the table and back to the mail folders here? Any hints a greatly appreciated.

Mail 4.2.1 Delete Behaviour
Since updating to IOS 4.2.1 I've noticed a change in behavior in the mail delete icon. It now switches states between and Archive and Delete button depending on the email. It seems that emails received before the update can be deleted but new mail received post update can only be archived. The only workaround I've come up with is to use the Move to Folder button and place in the deleted items folder. Has anyone else noted this behavior?

Delete Sent Mail Sync To Computer
Is there a way to make iPad automatically delete sent POP mail after a time period? I have my apple mail program on an iMac set to do so, and it's working fine. But on the iPad sent mail has not been being deleted. I tried telling iTunes to sync mail accounts, and replace mail info on the iPad with that from the computer, but the sent mail on the iPad is still all there. I could just delete it all, one by one, but since I thought the settings were synced to the computer that all the sent messages were being deleted, and just noticed they weren't. So now I have a thousand or more sent messages on the ipad. This only occurs with POP accounts, mail is behaving well, the sent messages delete as they should. Any ideas? Or, how can I mass delete thousands of sent messages on the iPad without having to do it one by one?

Delete MailBox Folders In Mail ?
On my exchange I got lots of folder where I saved various kind of letters. When I was setting up my Mail on the iPAD , it synced with my Exchange application, on the PC (or Server) and transfered all my MailBox Tree. They are all empty of course. I don"t need most of them on my iPAD, I do know that I can transfer mail from InBox to a specific folder, and it will do the job on my Company server, which is great. But as I mentioned , most of them are old archives. So I'll never transfer anything into these old Folders.

For the life of me, I couldn't find a way to delete them from my iPAD.

Unable To Delete Messages From The Mail Search Results
I just sent this feedback to apple.Does this strike anyone as a bit loony?snip! As with the iPhone.. there is no way to delete an e-mail from the search results. eg. go to your inbox.. search your inbox for a sender or subject or something.. In the results screen there's no "Edit" button to do batch deletes.. there's no way to swipe delete and when you actually click on the mail to read it the trash icon is greyed out. Why is this? It makes absolutely no sense at all.
