Here are some steps to take if you are unable to send emails from your iPad Air or iPhone. After the iOS 8.0 update, some people can’t send or receive Emails. To fix this problem, you’ll have to get the correct Emails setting or download an Email App.
To turn the iPad off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears, then drag the slider.
Give it a minute to shut down, then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

Add your email account on iPad or iPhone instead of syncing your mail settings from your computer. Start with the primary SMTP server, make sure all the correct information is entered, even the optional information. The optional username and password may be required here if SSL is turned on.
I recommend using a free Gmail account, add your other email addresses to the Gmail account, then add the Gmail account to your iPad or iPhone.
There are other advantages to doing this, such as, a unified inbox, folders and being able to view email from Safari.
