Sender address rejected by server but only when out and about

My iPhone 3GS has been working fine with sending and receiving emails both via wifi and when Im out and about.
Now it wont allow me to send emails while Im out. Can receive them okay and can access the internet, but when I try to send them I get told that the sender address was rejected by the server.
Yet it still works perfectly fine sending and receiving via wifi when Im home.
Im using an smtp address attached to my work, port 587. I know nothing technical but can try to give other details if asked.
Spent a while in the Orange shop and didnt get anywhere, any help I would gladly accept!

sender address rejected by service

I have many times sent images I take on my iphone to myself at home to import into iphoto with no problem. Today I try to do this and I get a message A copy has been placed in your outbox. The sender address (mine) was rejected by the server. I phoned my server shaw.ca and they say it is a problem with the phone. Why would this work a few days ago and not now. Any comments would be appreciated.

AOL mail won't send A copy has been placed in your Outbox Sending the message content to the server failed

After purchasing a new 4S my AOL mail wont send. I can receive emails from this AOL account, but when I try to send or reply  receive this message: A copy has been placed in your Outbox. Sending the message content to the server failed.


I used my AOL account just fine on my Iphone 4.

Ive tried all the suggestions Ive read online thus far to no avail. Please HELP!


Also, AOL is one of 4 emails I use. Yes, AOL is old. Yes, I still use it. Please just answer my question, I dont care how old and out-dated AOL is.

Why oh why are my emails still being rejected by the server

I receive emails just fine - but when I try to send emails from my phone, the messages were unable to be sent due to the the address being rejected by the server. I checked the troubleshooting guide, and have turned WiFi off, turned my other SMTP servers on, and deleted the original synced account and added it manually. When I added it, I had to authenticate without SSL as my ISP doesnt use SSL for my outgoing mail server (Bigpond ADSL, Im talking to you). I rewrote the message, tried sending again, and got the same rejected message. I know the email is valid as I use it all the time from my MacBook. So - is the lack of SSL the problem - and if, so, will I not be able to send emails from my phone unless I swap ISP? Or have I missed something?

E-mail address rejected - seems to differ on location

For two days running, new mail and reply mail to correct addresses have hung for hours, with a periodic message saying one of the addresses ... rejected bu the server (well, words to that effect)
One account sent ok, the other two would not.
Repeated attempts to send - including test messages to one of my three accounts - also fail with the same message.
Both days, I have been approaching home and woosh all the hung messages depart.
No impediment to incoming mail, incidentally.
Settings fault or local server fault? I suspect the server but ...

Sender Address Invalid

New Iphone 3G bought this week.
Set it up with my Cablevision acount (lastname@optonline.net).
I can receive and read e-mails on the phone no problem whatsoever.
When I go to send them, I get a Sender Address Invalid option and then they just remain in the outbox.
Any ideas? I know theres the disclaimer that Cablevision mail only works with certain connectivity (edge? 3G? Not sure).
Any advice or tips?

The sender address was invalid

But it isnt!! For the last few days, I have been unable to send email from my iPhone (3gs). I have tried composing new emails, and responding to old ones- no luck.
Spent half an hour on the phone with apple support, checked settings, turned smtp on/off, turned other servers on...deleted and added my account again.. turned the SSL on and off...checked the port settings..restarted the phone.....
And still- no luck:(
I use comcast email, and am able to receive emails on the phone- and everything working on my laptop and other computers.
If anyone has any insight, or is experiencing the same issue, I would love to hear about it! Thanks so much-

Cannot Send Mail The Sender address was invalid

I have iPhone 3G with O2 in the UK.
I have 2 IMAP email accounts that worked perfectly on both iMac and iPhone.
If I am now away from a WIFI service, and I try to reply/create and email, I get the message Cannot Send Mail. The Sender address was invalid.
My O2 service is working for phone and Maps OK.
If I am in range of a WIFI then the email sends fine.
I have reinitialised the iPhone, copied the accounts with iTunes to the phone, and it still happens. Also set both accounts to acces their respective SMTP server and the other accounts server under Primary and Other servers in the mail settings.
Final tests include turning off wifi, in a wifi zone, and the problem is the same. The accounts work perfectly via Mail and Safari on the iMac, so it looks like O2.
Thanks anyone in anticipation.

Hotmail - Sender email address is invalid

Ever since I got my new iPhone 3GS, I have not been able to send emails. I had an izymail subscription for hotmail on my original iPhone and it worked fine. I synced everything over to my new iPhone 3GS and also made a new email account as Hotmail is now free to set up using POP3.
I turned my izymail account off because I was having problems with it fetching old deleted emails once or twice a week. Everything was working as normal until I tried to send an email and the following message appeared: Sender email address is invalid
Ive tried switching my izymail account back on and switching my new Hotmail POP3 account off and my emails will send ok...
So why are my emails not sending with my newly setup Hotmail POP3 account?

Cannot Send Mail - address not recognized by 3rd party SMTP server

Ive got a problem where I have an ISP account and MobileMe, and Im trying to use them together. Basically, my ISP e-mail is forward to MobileMe so that I can enjoy IMAP instead of just POP. If it matters, the ISP is Rogers. I can receive my e-mail just fine on my iPhone. Problem is, when sending an e-mail, Id like for it to appear to have been sent from my ISP account to avoid confusion for others. So, I have configured my outgoing account as being my ISPs. But when I try to send something, I get a Cannot Send Mail - The sender address was invalid. error.
Im pretty sure that my outgoing SMTP account (using my ISP provider) is configured correctly because it matches my settings on my iMac, where it works just fine. I think the reason that its not working is because the address in Account Info on my iPhone is my MobileMe address. But when I try to access the SMTP server on my ISP, it doesnt like the MobileMe address, and refuses to send it.
On my iMac, I have the freedom of changing my address to my ISP address, even though Im picking up my e-mail from the MobileMe IMAP servers. But on my iPhone, this field cannot be edited. Do I have a way out? Or am I stuck having to send from my MobileMe server using my MobileMe address?
I know this all might sound confusing, so let me know if Im not making sense. Im just trying to replicate my iMacs behaviour onto my iPhone without any luck...
Thanks in advance.

me outgoing mail server not working from iPhone Reply to email address

Hi, I have MM sent up on my iPhone and Mac, the SMTP outgoing mail server does not work from the iPhone but does from the Mac, to get around this I changed the outgoing server on the iPhone to my optusnet outgoing server, that has been working fine, the problem I have is if someone replys to a email from the phone it gets bounced back becuase the reply to email address for me is @mac.com not from @me.com
I have tried to change the reply to email address in the phone but it only allows you to change the name not the @mac.com
I have only ever had a Me account not a .Mac account so I dont know why its locked to @mac

Hardware Error - Microphone broken - Warranty Rejected - Who to contact

OK. I have an Apple 16GB iphone bought in July 2008 in AUS.
The INTERNAL microphone has stopped working and no one can hear the user speaking. This is a common mobile fault where there is a loose or bad connection of the microphone inside the unit.
The phone or screen is not cracked or broken anywhere, but the plastic back has scratches as a cover has never been used and the phone is with you 24 hours a day everywhere you go.
Anyway, took it back to the Optus Shop to send it back through Boomerang. It has come back REJECTED as aan assessment performed on your handset has found signs of physical damage to the casing. The manufacturers warranty has been voided.
They are normal wear and tear, no dropping, no cracking just scratches on the bad. How the **** can this void warranty ?
Anyway, I am not satisfied with the response and I think that they have charged me $49 for the privilege to reject the claim.
I do have Optus insurance, which as a principal I only want to claim as a last resort plus I think that there is a $100 excess to pay.
My issue is, that I reject their assertion that that superficial marking of the case voids the warranty and they have no responsibility. I would like to talk to someone at Apple about arranging a fix rather than having to start a Department of Fair Trading case on the basis of a lazy technicians assessment.
Is there someone in Apple that I can speak to? I have always thought that Apple Customer Service was top-notch, so I was very surprised that this was an issue.
The phone has never been jail-broken, only has official apps installed, has never been wet, and there are no non-cosmetic scratches, cracks or damage visible.

mail stuck in Outbox

I have a problem very similar to that described in http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1692 ie I have a mail message that is trying to use an invalid mail server and just wont go away. It invokes the message about the bad mail server every time I use Mail. Ive corrected the mail server problem and can now email satisfactorily, but the one message is stuck. I tried the solution suggested in the knowledge base article which revealed the Outbox and the message, but there is no option to delete it, nor is there any way to change the server its trying to use. Am I stuck with it forever?
Any help gratefully received.

2 messages in Outbox which I cannot send or delete

I have 2 messages in my Outbox of my MobileMe account on my iPhone which I cannot send or delete. They both have addressees however the error message states Cannot send Mail, you did not specify any recipients. When I look at the mail , I see the message this message has not been downloaded from the server Unable to move message When I attempt to delete the message I get the message The message could not be moved to the mailbox trash.
Despite this, I can send and receive mail from the account. The messages were created by attempting to send photos from the iPhone when Roaming and losing contact to the phone system due to weak phone signals. I also see odd error messages when on line on Mobile me on Safari. I cannot see the messages on web mail. Any help appreciated. Phil

Unsent e mail and missing outbox

I have recently upgraded to an I Phone 3GS 16GB, which is great, however i have the following problem with it. When i recently tried to send e mails, it said they couldnt be delivered and were being sent to the outbox. Sure enough they were in there when i checked, but now the outbox has disappeared from my mailboxes list. How do i get it back into my list. I called into my local Apple store (150 miles away) and all they could think of was to reset and start again, which seemed a bit drastic, and quite unhelpful. Anyone any ideas? Cheers John.

Me Sending Outbox Issue on iPhone

I have a MobileMe account and I can receive mail on my iPhone but for some reason I cant send it. The standard outgoing mail error comes up on the iPhone. Whats odd is not only can I receive on my iPhone with the same e-mail account (all information is correct such as username, password) but I can also receive AND send if I log into MobileMe on my browser.

I updated my iphone 4S with iOS 6.1.3 and now my e-mails say This message has not been downloaded from the server We have an Exchange server at work

I updated my iphone 4S with iOS 6.1.3 and now I cannot retreive or send my e-mails.  We have an Exchange server at work.  I still receive the e-mails on all my devices just fine and I can see the subject headings & a small portion of the body of the e-mail, but when I open the e-mails there is no body and it reads, This message has not been downloaded from the server.  Very aggrevating and is not helping my business at ALL!!  Same has happened with both iPads we own now. 

Exchange Server emails stuck in iPhone after deleted from server

Connection to server failed error with Gmail exchange server

I upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 4.3 on Friday and now I cant access my Gmail account using the Microsoft Exchange settings, I just get a Connection to server failed error.
I also have a Google Apps email account for my website and I am able to access it using exchange... its just my regular Gmail account that I cant access (and thats where all my contacts are stored).
I can access the account using the regular Gmail email settings but that doesnt sync my contacts over the air, which is the advantage of using Exchange that I love the most.
I dont know if it is related or not, but I had a really hard time upgrading to iOS 4.3. I guess the update file was corrupt and it put my phone into restore mode. I had to use a different computer for the upgrade to finally work. Because I was using a different computer I had to restore it as a new phone rather than restoring from a backup, so maybe that has something to do with my email problem.

Emails staying in outbox since iOS4 update

When I try to send a picture as an email from Photos app,
the email stays in outbox without being sent.
To send the email with photo attachments, I have to manually go to mail and send from outbox.
This happened ever since I updated to iOS4 (including all their updates).
Any ideas?
