Hello everyone. Basically i have a friend that has an iPad. She is wondering if its possible to set up the iPad in such a way that it won't remember the email password in the MAIL app that comes with the iPad. She uses the iPad along with another lady but for privacy issues, wants to see if she can keep the other user from viewing her emails and vica versa.

If it isn't possible, im wondering if their are other mail apps that can be used......Thanks

My wife and I share the iPad for email, both Google accounts. We use the web-based interface within Safari. We don't care about seeing each other's mail, so the iPad is set to save passwords.

If someone wanted to do the same but maintain privacy, just set the iPad to not save passwords. I think it's the Autofill setting, set to "No", under Safari settings.

Makes sense...... actually a good idea. Thanks

i forgot to mention that she has comcast and verizon accounts..... maybe she could use them within the browser as well
