I've been told that there are e-mail limitations on an Iphone such as one e-mail account per phone. Kind of sad that Apple did that since most Blackberry phones can handle up to 10 e-mail accounts and possibly even more if you have access to a Blackberry domain controller.

You might have to use the web browser to get your ymail to work. I take it Ymail is Yahoo Mail?

This is a duplicate thread and a duplicate post.

Having problem opening emails on iphone i


Many iPhone users are facing a lot of problems with email. They are facing problems in sending or receiving email messages. The email account configured in the user's iPhone has been popping strange problems. Sometimes it simply refuses to accept any incoming mails and at other times it suffers from problems in the retrieval of mails.

  • Configure your email account directly on iPhone and not from your computer
    • Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and from there only add your email accounts under Accounts by tapping the Add Account option.
  • Turn of Wi-Fi and try fetching your mails by using the Cellular Data network
  • Try restarting your iPhone by pressing the sleep/wake up button for few seconds on turning it back on

After trying these options your iPhone should be back with your email account working perfectly fine. Otherwise you may need to visit the nearest Apple Store.

Tip

Increase iPad, iPhone, iPod battery backup !


  • Minimize use of location services: To disable location services, go to Settings > General > Location Services or use location services only when needed.
  • Turn off push notifications: To disable push notifications, go to Settings > Notifications and set Notifications to Off. Note that this does not prevent new data from being received when the application is opened. Also, the Notifications setting will not be visible if you do not have any applications installed that support push notifications.
  • Fetch new data less frequently: To fetch new data manually, from the Home screen choose Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data and tap Manually. To increase the fetch interval, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data and tap Hourly. Note that this is a global setting and applies to all applications that do not support push services.
  • Turn off push mail: Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data and set Push to Off. Messages sent to your push email accounts will now be received on your phone based on the global Fetch setting rather than as they arrive. If the global Fetch setting is set to Manually, you will not be able to locate your iPhone using the MobileMe Find My iPhone feature.
  • Auto-check fewer email accounts: This can be accomplished by turning off an email account or by deleting it. To turn off an account, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, choose an email account, and set Account to Off. To remove an account, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, choose an email account, and tap Delete Account.
  • Minimize use of third-party applications: Excessive use of applications such as games that prevent the screen from dimming or shutting off or applications that use location services can reduce battery life.
  • Turn off Wi-Fi: Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and set Wi-Fi to Off. Note that if you frequently use your iPhone to browse the web, battery life may be improved by using Wi-Fi instead of cellular data networks.
  • Turn off Bluetooth: Go to Settings > General > Bluetooth and set Bluetooth to Off.
  • Use Airplane Mode in low- or no-coverage areas: Because your iPhone always tries to maintain a connection with the cellular network, it may use more power in low- or no-coverage areas. Turning on Airplane Mode can increase battery life in these situations; however, you will be unable to make or receive calls. To turn on Airplane Mode, go to Settings and set Airplane Mode to On.
  • Adjust brightness: Dimming the screen is another way to extend battery life. Go to Settings > Brightness and drag the slider to the left to lower the default screen brightness. In addition, turning on Auto-Brightness allows the screen to adjust its brightness based on current lighting conditions. Go to Settings > Brightness and set Auto-Brightness to On.
  • Turn off EQ: To turn EQ off, go to Settings > iPod > EQ and tap Off. Note that if you’ve added EQ to songs directly in iTunes, you’ll need to set EQ on iPhone to Flat in order to have the same effect as Off because iPhone keeps your iTunes settings intact. Go to Settings > iPod > EQ and tap Flat.
  • Turn off 3G: To disable 3G, from the Home screen choose Settings > General > Network and set Enable 3G to Off. You will still be able to make and receive calls and access cellular data networks via EDGE or GPRS where available.
  • Avoid Using Winter-board theme

How can i push on emails on my 3G iphone/


Getting Started
1 Tap on the Settings app icon on the home page 2. Scroll down and open Mail Contacts Calendars
3 Tap Add Account
4 Select Microsoft Exchange
5 In the Email field, enter your Gmail address Leave the Domain field blank Enter your Google s Username and Password Once done tap Save You might see the Unable to verify certificate error message Select ccept
6 A new Server input field will now appear Enter m.google.com Tap Next to continue
7 Select the Google services that you want to sync. For me, I activated all the available synchronization services. Tap Done google sync enable Your Google sync Push notification services is now set up To activate the push notification you need to turn the Push feature on in the iPhone Settings section.At the Mail Contacts, Calendar section tap Fetch New Data Make sure that the Push is turned to ON Done Few things to note 1 Google sync requires you to be constantly connected to the Web You have to keep your 3G or WIFI connection Always Of for the best result 2 The push notification can be very draining on your battery life If you value your battery life much more than the push technology turn the Push feature OFF for optimal performance Push email support is one of the iPhone 3G s most anticipated features for road warriors but it doesn't work with just any email account Find out how to get hooked up The iPhone 2.0 software available for the iPhone 3G iPhone and iPod touch can t automatically turn any email account into push email It can only instantly send new messages to your phone if your email service supports push email The new iPhone 2.0 software supports push email in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange servers and Apple s Mobile Me service (the replacement for Apple s Mac Apple has labelled Mobile Me Exchange for the rest of us and it can push email to devices running iPhone 2.0 plus keep the device in sync with Microsoft Outlook on a PC or Mail Address Book and i Cal on a Mac he new iPhone s main settings menu now features a new icon Fetch New Data which lets you enable push email You can also schedule the phone to automatically check non-push email services every 15 30 or 60 minutes, or else only manually Which email works with push Push support from other services depends on the provider. The original iPhone supported push email with Yahoo by routing email through i map.apple mail yahoo.com but the service was flaky. This is still the default Yahoo email wizard configuration under iPhone 2.0 but if it refuses to work you can still go into Other and manually set up POP3 Yahoo access Gmail does not support push email only I MAP or POP3 What if I m using G mail or my email from an ISP like iiNet Of course the workaround is to forward your existing email address such as a G mail account, to your Mac account You could even create server side filters on G mail to only forward emails from certain senders to your Mac address to ensure you re not bombarded with push email spam You can also configure Mobile Me to automatically check external POP3 email accounts but this won t get emails from a G mail account to your phone as quickly as it would if your G mail account was automatically forwarding them Push email uses more data The iPhone 2.0 mail client only downloads email headers from I MAP and POP3 servers, in order to save bandwidth When accessing push email services the phone automatically downloads the body of the email and small attachments meaning you need a generous monthly data allowance The iPhone disables its wifi adaptor when sleeping switching over to the mobile data network. This means most of your push email will come down over the mobile data network while the phone is at rest, even when you're within range of a wifi network

My iphone does not alert me to new emails unless I open my email. In other words, the email ap doesn't show the correct # of emails actually in the box and I don't know there are new ones unless I open it....


First delete all email accounts from your IPhone except the one that you want to be updated without opening the email app.  IPhone can only automatically update one email account without accessing the email app.  Under settings on your IPhone, choose "mail, contacts calendars."  Then choose "Fetch new data." Then make sure to set "Push" to the  "ON." position.  Then select the time window for checking for new emails, "15 min 30 min manually."  Theoretically, your email app will check your email account or new emails every 15 minutes if you choose the 15 min option. The IPhone does not yet update emails every time you receive an email.

Push email


There is no push feature for Yahoo. It's a web based e-mail driven system just like hotmail and Google is. It can be used in Yahoo chat software as well if you have that feature on your Iphone.

The software might have changed in the Iphone but I know some users on this site complained that there was only one email account available per phone. I don't know if that was an Apple thing or an AT&T thing.

The G1 has a push feature for Google Mail but thats because Google software resides on the phone.

I believe in Yahoo you can forward the e-mail to another e-mail account. If you had it forward to another e-mail account on your phone that is pushing that would be the only work around.
