Hi my name is ***** ***** to Just Answer. I am reviewing your question and will reply ASAP.
Please correct me if I am wrong. The iPad you are using to email, is for your daughter and your daughters email address. You have configure an email account on the iPad and sent an email to your daughter-in-law from it?
Sorry disregard that last question.
The iPad is yours, the test email was to your daughter, and the email appeared to have been sent by your daughter-in-law. Sorry, I just needed to clear that up.
This could only have happened if your daughter-in-law set up the email account on your iPad.
Did your daughter-in-law set up the iPad initially, or ever use it to add her own email account?
You will need to configure your email account on the iPad to do that. I can help you to do that.
Did your daughter-in-law set it up for you?
On the home screen, tap Settings.
Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
What to you see at the top? How many Accounts? Is one your daughter-in-laws account?
If it is you need to ask if you can delete it or if you need to keep it.
If your account is not there we need to add it which I can give instructions for.
If it is there, I can show you how to make sure you choose the right account when sending so that it comes from your email and therefore your name.
Let me know what accounts you can see listed in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
Ok, the test email you sent mysteriously came from your daughter-in-laws account even though you sent it from your iPad. The most likely reason is that when it was set up your daughter-in-laws email was used to set it up.
If you can check in Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
If you can list what accounts are listed at the top it will clear up what is actually happening.
That's ok, I can post each step needed.
The home button brings you back to the home screen.
Press it and it brings you back to all the apps.
Settings looks grey and has a mechanical look.
Tap it and then on the left hand side swipe with the touchscreen to scroll the list up and down.
Look for Mail, Contacts, Calendars and tap it.
The list of accounts appears on the top right.
Oh. I was of the understanding that this was a question regarding your iPad.
Did you send the email from your computer to the iPad?
It can only be sorted out on the iPad. I would need a few minutes with you to fix it, but on the iPad.
I would need you to find the Settings app on the iPad and check what accounts are installed. The steps would be as above.
Let me know this so we can go to the next step.
When you tap Settings, tap "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" in the list on the left. You might need to scroll.You said there was a test email sent from the iPad.
If the test email was sent from the iPad I would need you to use the iPad for any steps to find out what accounts are listed. If none then the test email must have been sent from a webmail account. But it's more likely that your daughter-in-laws account is on the iPad, and we can either remove it or add your account and make it the default.
Let me know when you can check "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" for any accounts. Sincerely, David.
Yes, you can consult me later. It's easy to get bogged down on accounts and devices, which is installed where etc. happens to the best of us. Let me know when you can continue. Please take a moment to rate my answer using the star rating, and get back to me when you can. Sincerely, David.
