    I can access my internet provider via my tablet and I can receive emails but I cant send them. Sent emails appear in my 'sent' box but they are not received by the recipient. Its not my internet provider because I can send email using my PC. It just work on the tablet. Any ideas? Thanks.

    it may be that you cannot access the outgoing SMTP service. I have the same problem with my office WiFi configuration, email comes in, but outgoing mail sits in the out box but will not send. It is due to a configuration that blocks access to these services, which is pretty standard.

    Try connecting to a different WiFi and see if you still have the issue.
