    Why can't I get use to email on the iPad ? I try and try but every time I use it I delete my account/settings and just use Thunderbird on my pc instead.

    Anyone else have this problem ?

    No.

    Tried a different email app? I use yahoo mail and find the ipad's resident app quite nice and easy. But there are other apps.

    Yes. Maybe it is just me.

    Have you read the recent news about Yahoo email being hacked ?

    i use the app for the client.

    e.g. outlook for my hotmail, gmail for my gmail etc.

    the built in email app on ipad i do not like.

    but that is me.

    Use imap settings.

    That depends on what you email provider offers. Modern ones use imap.

    I use Airmail on my phone and my iPad, but have not had any issues with the resident app either

    Can you be more precise what the issue actually is? So far we only know you try and then you delete your account afterwards.

    I use the Spark email client/app by Readdle, and I am really happy with it. Easy to use. If you keep your documents in the cloud (Dropbox in my case), you can browse documents to attach like you would on a desktop, very easy to create filters, a "smart inbox feature" where unread email are always on top regardless of time received, with the chronological inbox just beneath it (the smart inbox is optional, but helps me keep track of my emails). Highly recommended.

    I'm also a big fan of Spark on my iPhone & iPad.
    Perhaps you're not keen on the organization with virtual keyboard. Maybe try using with a Bluetooth keyboard to save screen real estate and type faster?

    Swedefish makes a good point with Attachments and Airmail also does work with iCloud Drive, Drop Box, PDF Expert and others

    I use the built-in mail app for all my email and have never had any issues. Before that when I had a MacBook Pro, I used the Mac built-in mail app, and the one on my iPad Pro is pretty much the same as that one. I use iCloud email for my personal mail and Microsoft Exchange for business, and both accounts work very well with the built in mail app.

    I use "Spark" keeps everything synced through iCloud for all my accounts and devices. I was never a huge proponent for Apples Email app and this one solved all my problems of everything being out of sync lol

    IMAP is better if you actually have a choice.
