    Everytime I hit the mail icon on my iPad Air the mail goes to iCloud. I never use this account for mail.

    Why is it doing this or how to stop this. It's really annoying.

    Email is set to default to gmail.

    I am not sure what's going on :(

    Mail should open to whichever mailbox was selected when the was last closed.

    You can use the Edit button to hide any accounts you do not wish to see/use.

    That default setting only applies to which account is used when the Compose Mail icon is pressed.

    Ecxaxtly it "should" but it doesnt. I have never selected icloud mail. Not sure why this is happening.

    I even turned off the "radio button" on the icloud account. Moved the account to the bottom etc.

    Can i delete? Or will this affect sync of icloud ?


    Weird, this time i think i was able to hide icloud acct. i will see if that fixes my issue, thanks

    Isn't there an option to just not sync your iCloud email if it's that much of a problem? I'm going to grab my iPad 2 and check. Yep, it's still there in settings under iCloud.
