Added back on still the same msg still saying cannot send mail id or password *****

from your iPad correct? And it actually does add?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it was all ticked and saved

Thanks, ***** ***** cause left as it is not the devices is that there is a block on her account to email.

Call 0800(###) ###-#### and have them remove this block so she can send again.
