Hey everyone,

I've had my iPhone synced up to my work email for awhile now, but one thing has always bothered me.

While I can view my work emails from the phone, if I try to reply, I get the spinning wheel of death...lol. It says something about not being able to connect or something.

Is my work email to blame, or is there a way to fix the problem? My work email is IMAP, and I synced the settings from my work computer.

Any help is appreciated!

I found that I had a hard time replying to e-mails when the wifi was on. I turn my wifi off whenever I am not using it. Also, I called Apple and the lady told me to go to settings then mail and cancel my e-mail account. Then just add it back. She said whenever email providers update their settings it will make the iPhone act funny.

When I couldn't reply it was because my outgoing mail settings were not set up. Go to settings/mail and scroll to the bottom. My incoming set up just fine. I had to manually input the outgoing mail information.
