I have several email accounts.  Some gmail.  Some yahoo.


For some reason, for some email accounts, my outgoing mail gets stuck in the outbox.  I get the following message:


Cannot Send Mail

The connection to the outgoing server

"" failed.  Additional Outgoing Mail Servers can be configured in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.



Not sure why all of the sudden this happens.


I went and checked the email account settings.  I even deleted the email account and added it again. 

I am running iOS6.  


Not sure what else to try.


iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1
