    When I try to send an email I get the message "Failed to sign in to..." my email address. This is new and seems to need an authorisation. How to re-set to make contact?

    Can you receive any email from this email acccount and client app? If yes, maybe you should enable some email account option like 'send emails with any SMTP client'.

    Is it Exchange email, some other corporate or enterprise account? If so, maybe you need to get your device authorised by the admin?

    Just using the Email account provided on the Note. Not using GMail the other service provided. Cleared cache and data and now simply get "Sending failed". However strangely by using Messaging I was able to send to my email account on the computer because my ISP handles it as an SMS message and delivers it as an email.
    I have never sent an email to my phone or received one. I only need to move photos from the phone to my computer.

    The stock email app imo, is rubbish.
    Use anything other and you should be set
