Can’t Send Emails on iPad – Troubleshooting Steps
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.
Turn iPad off and then on again
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.
In Settings, turn on other SMTP servers (iPhone & iPad)
Add additional information to SMTP servers to Fix Receive/Send Email Problems

POP3 Email setting works best if you’re using email on 1 single desktop computer. IMAP E-mail setting is designed to sync for multiple tablets, computers and phones.
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.
- In iTunes, select iPad in the source list on the left, under Devices.
- Select the Info tab.
- If selected, deselect Sync Mail Accounts.
- Click Apply.
- Disconnect iPad after it has finished syncing.
- Next select the type of email account and follow the instructions. When you enter your email address, iPad will look up your service provider’s settings for you. If the iPad can’t find your service provider’s settings, you can enter them directly or contact your email service provider for the settings.
If None of These Steps Work:
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.
