You can delete the email account from your ipad or the best and easiest way is to login to you email account directly the the server. Open the webpage of your ISP (gmail.com, yahoo.com etc..) login to your account and delete mails from there. Depending on your ipad email account this is the only way to delete the mails for good.
The following works on devices with iOS7
1. go to the homescreen by pressing the home button
2. launch the "Settings" app
3. search on the left side for "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" and tap on
4. on the right side you will see "Accounts"
5. tap on the account name you would like to remove
6. the account details will appear (ie. your email address)
7. on the bottom you will have a "Delete Account" button.
8. By taping the button you can delete the account.
Be ware an account can be associated with multiple apps not only email. By deleting the account you will not receive associated calendars, notes, or contacts.
If you would like to remove only the emails associated with one account you should switch off the email option for that account on the same screen that appears at step 6.
Go to Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Under the Mail window - go to Show> and select the number of recent emails that you want the iPad to load in your email accounts.
While you are in the mail settings - tap on the email account, tap on the account in the next window, tap on Advanced in the next window and tap Delete - and select the amount of time that you want the emails to stay on the iPad.
In some mail accounts there will also be an option for Delete from Server - tap that and set it to never if you want to control when to delete your old emails.
Go back to your email inbox in the mail app and swipe down to the bottom of the window - there may be an option to "load more messages from the server" in blue letters. Tap that and you will download as many odl emails as you set up for in the Show recent messages setting. At the top of the inbox is a search field - type in keywords in that search field to find old emails.
You can also search for emails in the spotlight search. Go to the home screen and tap the home button and the search feature pops up. Type keywords in the search field at the top to find old emails there as well. When you tap on that email in the search, the mail app will open and you can read the email.
If you are trying to remove an email address you set up on your ipad just do the following. Go into SETTINGS>>MAIL, CONTACTS, CALENDERS. It should be about the 12th tab on the left. Once there you should see all the email account you have set up on your iPad starting with iCloud at the top. To delete an account tap on one you want to delete which will open up its option page with the delete button at the bottom. Hit delete to delete
It depends on how your hotmail was setup on your iPad. If it was setup as POP3 connection, then you can still retrieve your email using a broswer to log into Hotmail.
If it was setup as IMAP then whatever you delete from your iPad will be delete on Hotmails server as well. Double check your Trash folder to see if its still in there. If that has been deleted, then there is no way to get your mail back.
