- I'm connected to the Internet (via Wifi, and i tried at home, at work, and via 3G - it's a 64GB 3G);
- I've followed the instructions on google's help pages (syncing via PUSH using the Exchange account), i googled a lot and found a bunch of people with the same problem, but all the threads were abandoned without a solution;
- I've got this puppy for 4 weeks, and it worked flowlessly untill 2 days ago when i did a restore (without backup so i could keep the iPad clean and start from scratch - everyone likes to mess around the first few days with software and so on...)
- Problem happens for at least 12h (maybe too long for a server problem?)
- English is NOT my first language.
So i tried this: sent a mail from my work exchange account to my gmail's account. The moment i see the mail on the web app, i see the "checking for mail" message on the ipad, that takes about 30 to 45 seconds to disappear. If i click "Mark as read" on the web, same message appears on the iPad, and so on.
I've deleted all the settings a couple of times, restarted about 10 times, and nothing. Still stuck with this.
The question is: it didn't took so long the first time i installed these settings! If i manualy check mail, it also takes a lot in order for effectively check the mail.
This kind of sucks. Do i need to restore AGAIN? This thing takes ages to copy the 30GB of multimedia i have.
I have three email accounts that I access with my iPad via Wi-Fi. When I go to the inbox and have it check for new mail, the 'checking for mail' just spins and spins and no new mail is actually downloaded. It has not worked since I updated to iOS 4.2 yesterday.
Anybody have a clue as to the problem and how to fix it?
Mail App Won't Stop "checking For Mail" On IPad 2?
May 25, 2012
When I open the mail app and go into "all inboxes" the "checking for mail" wheel and status appear at the bottom. It never stops and I am wondering if that's the reason why the mail app freezes (letters appear slowly, can't open anything) and why my battery drains so quickly.
I've read a lot of discussion about quitting the app, rebooting the machine, etc - but none of that has worked.
I'm having strange problem with my new iPad. I'm trying to set up email account with yahoo. It seems to verify my email address correctly however my emails never get populated. When I click on mail I just get the circle status bar in lower left corner and it says checking for mail... But nothing ever shows up in list. My settings appear to be correct and my account was successfully verified but still I'm not seeing any of my emails. I have my push settings set to manual and there's a blue on button. What am I doing wrong?
just got an ipad and finished setting up all the email accounts, however i notice something different from my experiences with iPhone. When I open Mail it only checks the account for new mail that i'm currently in, if I want to check another account I have to go back out and go into the Inbox of the other account. For example, if i'm on Gmail when i open Mail, I will only be able to check new mail in Gmail and not in my other accounts.
I'm assuming there is a way to check my '@me.com' email from my desktop (a windows computer if it makes a difference), but could someone please tell me how to do it?Or if there's no way at all, direct me to the nearest wall so i can hit my head on it.
In the last 3 or 4 weeks when I check my email accounts on my IPad I have 15 or 20 emails that say "no sender" and "message has no content". How can I clean this up and stop it from happening every day. I don't get these messages when checking mail on the IMac.
Had my iPad for 6 weeks, have several accounts in mail. Sometimes mail freezes and does nothing. Mostly happens when I select multiple messages to delete. Only solution is to turn off and on again. If I quit mail and go back it resumes in the same place. It's annoying, have the same accounts on my Mac Mini and iPhone and they work just fine .
I've turned Fetch New Data to Manual. I've also gone to Advanced and made sure that each separate email account is set to Manual and have also turned off Push. However, Mail keeps checking and downloading new emails without me even opening the application. This is kind of annoying and i can't understand why it does this. does anyone have any advice? am i missing a setting that needs to switched on or off?
So my job has wifi that's unsecured. When I go to check my email I get an error message that the email client can't connect to the server. Is this something apple built in or can I do so something to fix it?
How To Stop Email Checking When First Entering In Mail App?
May 12, 2010
Whenever I enter the iPad Mail app, it automatically downloads my messages even though I have all my fetch settings set to "manual". Is there a way to disable this? I only want to fetch messages when I say so. For example, in Mac OS Mail, I check my email manually -- when I first launch the Mac OS Mail app, nothing

IPad :: Reformatted And Installed IOS 8 - Getting Hundreds Of Trashed Messages On Checking Mail
Nov 30, 2014
I reformatted my iPad. I also in stalled iOS eight. Now every time I checked mail I get hundreds of formerly trashed messages from before I reformatted. I now have over a thousand. Is there anyway to keep this from happening and get rid of those messages.
I am in the sent page of the e-mail screen and it is locked up. Nothing moves me off the highlighted message. The "last updated" time at the bottom of the screen is accurate. I've turned the power off and on to no avail All other functions of the I-pad are working correctly. This seemed to occur after I tried to add contact from the highlighted message.I'm using gmail.
