I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Hi my niece replied she got two pictures but I only sent one

Two of the same pictures or different pictures?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No the same picture twice

have her forward the email back to you, not reply but forward

how many times do you see the picture?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok I have asked her


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi I received her forward and there are two copies

Go to the sent folder on your iPad, open the original email

How many pictures are in that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Only one

The issue is then on her side, likely with her email client or provider, but it is not with your device, this now confirms it

Hi again. I have sent an email to a friend and when I look at the sent mail it comes up “ this message has no content” and this is one of the problems I had with my niece in Oz . So the problem goes on.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Looking at the inbox it is all there but the all mail says no content. Puzzled.

when you look at it in the sent folder, how does it look

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It has my message to my friend and looks ok. On the list of all mail it says no content but when you open it up the message is there

Go to settings, general, reset, reset all settings

Tell me how the new emails work please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi it made me reset iPad and re-input password. I sent another email and now looks ok thank you. If it happens again I will be in touch.
