First try quitting the Mail app like I describe then reset your phone.
Go to the Home screen and double click the Home button. That will reveal the row of recently used apps at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold on the app in question until it wiggles and displays a minus sign. Tap the minus sign to actually quit the app. Then tap anywhere on the screen above that bottom row to return the screen to normal. Then reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

No go with this method for me.
I would delete the mail apps if I could access them.
Crash and burn baby!
No word from Apple on this yet?
No you can't delete the email app. But you can remove the account and add it back in. This has worked for most users with an issue. And for many, simply waiting a while has taken care of it. If you are using Yahoo, all bets are off. It seems to have a perpetual issue with iOS.

having just upgraded my iPhone 4 to 6.1.3 two days ago and after reading James Ward's comments on BT Yahoo Mail (all bets are off), I thought I was truly doomed.
I tried umpteen manual configuration changes and also deleted the Yahoo mail Account I had on my phone.
BTW, I have a "firstname.lastname@example.org" email address.
I was also able to login with same username/password as above to the BT Yahoo mail on the Web just fine and see all my emails, so it was just through the Mail App on my iPhone I had the problem (and only after the upgrade to 6.1.3)
At various points I had the following error messages:
Error message 1
The IMAP Server apple.imap.mail.yahoo.com is not responding.
Check network connection.
Check "Incoming Mail Server" field.
Error message 2
The Operation couldn't be completed.
(MFMessageErrorDomain error 1032)
Error message 3
Please try again later.
So after 2 calls from Apple (yes they called me, no cost), I have it working;
Here are the settings I did:
POP account Information
name, email as above
Incoming Mail Server
host name: mail.btinternet.com
username: email as above
Outgoing Mail Server
(selecting the Outgoing Mail Server above...)
Primary Server: mail.btinternet.com (ON)
(selecting the Primary mail Server above...)
Username: email as above
Use SSL (OFF)
Authentication: password (ticked)
Server Port: 25
Go back to main Account screen
Select your Btopenworld account just created
scroll down and select Advanced
Use SSL (OFF)
Authentication: password (ticked)
Server Port 110
After I did that and I opened up my mail app, it synced and downloaded all my emails!! :-)
Thanks to Apple for their help.

Sorry to hear you are having the same issue.
If it's with BT Yahoo Mail, then my solution seemed to work, but I had to persevere.
The steps above I thought were quite clear actually :-)
Basically I deleted the BT Yahoo Mail account I had on my phone.
Then, when you go into add the new mail account, do NOT use the big Yahoo symbol from the list (there iCloud, Microsoft Exhange, Gmail, Yahoo, Aol, Hotmail AND OTHER).
Against my better judgement (and after failing to add an account through the Yahoo option), I chose "Other", the "add mail account". Enter your name, email, password and I put down "Btopenworld" for Description.
After that, follow the above steps from "POP account Information".
Hope that is clearer.

How inportant is the Server Port setting, I've tried 110, 457, 57, 587 (info from other people having problems) but still cannot get emails when setting up through OTHER, and POP account
Tried re-boots, deleted all accounts, and re-installed several times

Same problem with email except this is on a 5. The update was done recently, not today, but problems started this morning. Can't access email accounts from mail icon. Cannot access email accounts through settings so can't delete accounts. Each time I try to access either, it tries to open then goes back to the main screen. Also noticed a glitch in a game app at same time but may not be related. And the folder with the email apps in it will not move to another screen. You can always downnload the email app from the app store.
I've done the following w/o ANY LUCK:
1. Restore to factory settings
2. Synced, wiped and restored

Just had this same problem.
Iphone 4S - OS 6.1.2 ( April 9th 2013 )
Mail was showing a blank page for roughly 10 seconds then quitting; battery consumption was enormous,
sub menus in "settings" were taking ages to open.
I finally managed to delete my Pop account as well as the Gmail account. Before I could delete the iCloud as had been suggested in some posts, everything has returned to normal.
Hope this works for you.
