Thanks there Woolwell. I've got chrome but not keen on it. Anyway I've added my hotmail account to the IPad inbuilt mail and can access it there no problem. it was just annoying me that Safari was crashing with Hotmail, it works fine otherwise. Pity there's no Firefox for IPad! Thanks again I'll tick this solved as I can't see anyone can fix it at the moment.
