Hotmail recently sent me a message a saying they were stopping my email because of security concerns. So I changed password, etc. now hotmail works on iPhone , but not on iPad even though they are synced. How can I get email working on iPad now. The account is there but no mail coming through, but all working on iPhone.

I’m not sure, but the first place I would look is on your iPad settings, under Mail, then account – if your Hotmail account is listed there, tap it and then Password and Security. Did you go in here and change this setting to your new password?
