Send email in Mail on iPad
With the Mail app , write and edit email from any of your email accounts, use a custom email signature, mark addresses from outside certain domains, and more.
Write an email message
Tap in the email, then type your message.
With the onscreen keyboard, you can tap individual keys. Or pinch closed with three fingers to use the smaller QuickType keyboard, then slide your finger from one letter to the next, lifting your finger only after each word.
To change the formatting, tap above the keyboard.
You can change the font style and color of text, use a bold or italic style, add a bulleted or numbered list, and more.
Tap in the To field, then type the names of recipients.
As you type, Mail automatically suggests people from your Contacts, along with email addresses for people who have more than one email address.
You can also tap to open Contacts and add recipients from there.
If you’re sending a copy, tap the Cc/Bcc field, then do any of the following:
Tap in the Cc field, then enter the names of people you’re sending a copy to.
Tap in the Bcc field, then enter the names of people whose names you don’t want other recipients to see.
Capture an email address from a photo
You can use Live Text to interact with an email address printed on a business card, poster, and more using the Photos app on iPad. This allows you to quickly begin emails without entering an address manually.
Open a photo in the Photos app, then tap the email address you want to capture.
After the yellow frame appears around detected text, tap .
Tap or use the grab points to select the email address, then tap New Mail Message.
Tip: You can use the same Live Text feature to capture an email address using the Camera app. See Use Live Text with the iPad camera.
Automatically send a copy to yourself
Go to Settings > Mail, then turn on Always Bcc Myself (below Composing).
Change a recipient from Cc to Bcc
After you enter recipients, you can reorder their names in the address fields, or drag them from one address field to another—for example, to the Bcc field if you decide you don’t want their names to appear.
Add additional mail accounts
Go to Settings > Mail > Accounts > Add Account, then choose from the options. If your email provider isn’t listed, tap Other.
Customize your email signature
You can customize the email signature that appears automatically at the bottom of every email you send.
Go to Settings > Mail, then tap Signature (below Composing).
Tap in the text field, then edit your signature.
You can only use text in your Mail signatures.
Tip: If you have more than one email account, tap Per Account to set a different signature for each account.
Send an email from a different account
If you have more than one email account, you can specify which account to send email from.
In your email draft, tap the Cc/Bcc, From field.
Tap the From field, then choose an account.
Mark addresses outside certain domains
When you’re addressing an email to a recipient who’s not in your organization’s domain, you can have the recipient’s name appear in red to alert you.
Go to Settings > Mail > Mark Addresses (below Composing).
Enter the domains that are in your organization—ones that you don’t want marked in red.
You can enter multiple domains separated by commas (for example, “apple.com, example.org”).
The names of recipients in domains outside your organization appear in red, whether you send them an email or receive one from them.
