Xtra are having problems with their smtp server - could be the problem rather than the ipad.

nitrotech: Xtra are having problems with their smtp server - could be the problem rather than the ipad.

This should be fixed.

OP I'd suggest as Johnr says, advise what SMTP server you are using and are you using Slinghshot Broadband when you are encountering this error?

Check for any strange characters in the email address field. If you have copy and pasted it from somewhere else you might have put a tab or something at the end of the address.
