    Removing the accounts and adding them back might prompt them to be deleted/solve the deletion error. Go to: SETTINGS > MAIL > ACCOUNTS, then tap on the account and scroll down to delete.

    Turn the iPad on and off (this is actually not vital at all, but can help clear stuck data). Then add the accounts from the Mail section in settings again.

    Should solve things, if not let me know and I will think of something else.
