Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.
How are you accessing your gmail? Through a email client on your computer, phone or in a browser?
If all your previous operations against your Gmail account were done by the Mail app on your iPad, you need to reset the password ***** a browser on your iPad, such as the built-in Safari.
To do so, open your Safari (or any of your preferred other browsers), and type "mail.google.com" at the address bar. You might be prompted to switch to Mail app for mail operations, just ignore it. Try logging in there at Gmail page using your known password, if failed, click the "Forgot Password" link below the Sign In button to restore the password.
You mean you did it on your iPad? If yes, log on there using your username and known password. If the password *****'t be recognised, click the Forget Password ***** just below the Sign In button.
If you see your emails directly, that just means you did use this browser to successfully login Gmail before. Your browser just remembered your credential so you no need to input it. What's the browser you are using? The built-in Safari browser?
You need to be patient sir. I need to clearly understand your situation before guiding you do something.
1. As you are already logged in at Gmail using web browser, you can change your password ***** clicking Google logo at the upper-left corner, the page turns to Google home page, then click your email address at the upper-right corner, choose "My account", then choose "Signing in to Google " under "Sign-in & Security" section to change your password.
2. If you put some emails in Trash or Spam folders/labels, they will stay there for 30 days before permanently being deleted.
3. There is three-bar icon at the left pane, you click it and choose "Sent Mail" under "Labels", then you can see your Sent emails in the browser on iPad.
4. Like Point 3, click the three-bar icon to see the Draft folder. You can make draft automatically, all the unfinished emails are saved in the Draft folder automatically.
Any update please? The password ***** been reset?
Okay, thanks for the update.
Okay, take your time. But, be aware there is a time limit for recovering items that have been moved to the Trash or Bin folder. So you better do it ASAP.
> still " can't get mail" shows " incorrect passwords"
You need to input the new password ***** your Mail app of iPad otherwise it will keep using the old one.
If the app says password (not others) is incorrect, it does mean password ***** Double check if the email address is for the password, also carefully input your password, it might be an awful experience to input password ***** "smart" devices as the operating system (iOS) always tries to correct your spelling.
We share the same felling, it is weird.
For me, if I am sure the password ***** ***** correct, I would double check if the email address is also correct in Mail settings of iPad.
