    Why does my Email not send when connected to Wi-fi. It only send when Wi-fi is disconnected and then it uses 3G data.

    Is it a public WiFi spot? You can be connected, but it won't allow transfer until you agree to terms.

    When I first started using mobile email my ISP would only allow it's own and GMAIL's SMTP server to be used all others are denied. Maybe you need to setup a secondary SMTP server to allow for sending mail from your home network. They seem to have lightened up as all my email accounts can now use their own SMTP server, but maybe yours is still uptight.

    Settings>mail, contacts and calendar>email account go into your account settings and there is an SMTP setting. You can then turn on/off different servers. I would set my ISP email as the secondary server for all my accounts.
