Any computer bods here know why an iPad would demand a password to send a response by me to a gmail (east European name in case relevant)? But no others?

Happy, in principle to input my Apple password to respond, but it did make me pause for thought. There must be a reason why. Just wanted to check in case it was some sort of email scam. (It was someone asking for basic help relating to my hobbies). I havenít entered it in case of doubt so that email is just sitting there. Others get sent without issue.

Sounds like some sort of a phishing scam to me....

I am an ejit.

That was the email I put in my books and on this iPad I had never sent from it before, so it was just first time use password request.

And to think I used to be able to write computer programs, now I canít even use an iPad!
