Strange email appearance problem

Mail on my iPhone (latest firmware) has suddenly developed a "red bar" across the bottom of the screen and the text is truncated on the right margin. I also cannot zoom or shrink the text.

I tried setting the font smaller, but no change and the red bar is a constant in all mail.

Any ideas? I have not done a reset yet and was hoping to avoid it.

Thanks.

You can do a reset by holding the home button and start button together for about 12 seconds. This will reboot your phone. Usually it helps a lot.
If not, I think you will have to restore your iPhone through iTunes

I had the same problem and just tried the reboot, but now all I have is the Apple logo and my iPod seems locked up. Now what?

OK, now I feel silly. My iPod just took several minutes to reboot. When it came back, everything was just fine and the red bar was gone (font was normal in email, too).

Thanks for the suggestion. I hope this works for thr61 just as well.
