If this is covered somewhere else then sorry but I've not been able to find it searching Apple or Google.

 

 

This issue seems to have been going since 2011 with no acknowledgement from Apple Inc:

iPhone5 (MD299B/A)

iOS 6.1.3 (10B329)

 

 

Using Mail App with IMAP and MS Exchange if the data connection wifi or 3G is unavailable/recovering or going down when you hit send on an email the email will go into the ether never to return.

 

 

Doesn't save to Drafts or Outbox, doesn't retry isn't recoverable doesn't leave the phone have checked my mail server logs just vanishes with no error so you assume its safely sent as normal but it's gone forever.

 

 

Does Apple have this bug in there stack to fix do they know what causes it? (I know I can rebuild my Phone to master defaults but that isn't a fix that’s a workaround).

 

 

Thanks,

Finch

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3
