    when I click on the mail icon I get a blank screen with status bar at the top and refresh icon in bottom left and compose icon in bottom right. Reverts to board after a few seconds. Tried going into photos and emailing from there but nothing happens. Settings look normal, all the accounts (exchange, gmail, etc ) are there. Powered down but no change. any ideas?

    You say you Powered down, but did you Restart or Reboot? They're totally different things.

    Hold both the Sleep and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo and then release both. And if that doesn't work, maybe try Reset Network Settings.

    I saw a note today that there have been issues with gmail recently. I, however, haven't seen anything of note.
    YMMV

    EDIT: I just found a website that might help suss this - http://downrightnow.com/

    Any impatience you show will only create more stress.

    Rebooted and It's back. Had to get to my computer to reboot if you know what I mean.

    Most of the time when email is frozen, a reboot of your iPhone will solve the problem. I have freezing issues often with mail app and Facebook.
