It still won't work shall I delete and make a new email account?
Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
If you do, you will have a new email address, and wont have access to your old emails again.

Is this ok?

If Not, why did it not work? What was the problem you encountered?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yeah that's ok my emails are not that important only from job centre and adverts but don't need them anymore.
I've forgotten my recovery email address. And password XXXXX
I used my dad's email address but when I put my security questions on it didn't recognise
I use the email address for amazon will this affect it ?
Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
No problem

Ok, these are the steps to do Christina.

first, click on my link below and create a new hotmail account.

https://signup.live.com/

Make sure to enter all you information accurately, incase you ever have a password XXXXX in the future.

Once you have created this account, on the iPad, go to Settings, Mail, press on the old Hotmail account, go to the bottom and press Delete Account.

Once it is deleted, go to Settings, Mail and you can now add the new hotmail account. It will then work.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

This will download a program to your computer.

Run this program by double clicking it.

You will then see a ID and Password.

Please send that to me in your next message.

Do not close the program, please leave it open.

Make sure to seperate the code numbers with a space eg: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Thank you
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It says I can't download on this server ­čś» sorry
Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
are you doing this on the iPad?

Or a computer?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
On the iPad because I haven't got a computer. When it says to verify code do I put spaces in between?
Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
No you do not, but I don't believe you did the instructions right initially.

There is another way.

go to the App Store on the iPad.

Look for the app

OWA for iPad

And download and install it.

You can see the app here

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/owa-for-ipad/id659524331?mt=8

And use this for emailing on the iPad.

Let me know the results please
