Currently Being ModeratedJul 19, 2008 7:20 PM (in response to adogmij)My troubles began before I installed Remote. Hope you continue to have success, though.
1. Removed the Remote appliction.
2. Powered off/on my iPhone.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 19, 2008 7:20 PM (in response to lladna)OK, it's only been a few hours, but I've done something that (at least for these few hours) seems to be working.
Time will tell.
Here's what I did:
1. Deleted both email accounts from my iPhone.
2. Changed one of my two accounts on my desktop computer from POP to IMAP (when I say changed, what I mean is added a new IMAP account and then disabled the POP version. You can't really make that type of change once an account has been created, so you have to open a new one and either disable or delete the old one, savings messages first, of course.)
3. Set up the same IMAP account on my iPhone.
It's been working ever since.
Again, though - that's only a few hours.
I also tried to change (again, not change, but add a new one) my other email account to IMAP on my computer, but it wouldn't let me. Maybe Comcast doesn't allow IMAP accounts. Anybody know for sure?
I will see how this all looks in the morning and into tomorrow and repost.
As of right now, it looks like IMAP is the way to go.G-5 Dual and Mac Book Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1), 6 gb ram on desktop, 2gb on laptop
Currently Being ModeratedJul 19, 2008 7:31 PM (in response to jmf3001)Well, I have now had stable email for about 36 hours. After my last restore as new iphone, I manually added in all of my email accounts and did not allow my email accounts to synch between the iphone and iTunes. I still had the problem until I disabled my pop account. Now I only have two Moble me accounts active on the iphone, but it seems to have resolved the problem - at least for 36 hours now. The iphone has switched between wifi and Edge numerous times. I have received emails and sent emails on the Mobile me accounts. Obviously the POP account is not active on the iphone which is a problem in the long term, but for right now I was excited to not have to power off/on my phone every few minutes to hours.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 7:07 AM (in response to Tony Peddicord)Well, I have removed all my applications using iTunes and sync the iPhone. I purchased all them back except the REMOTE and now my email has been working perfect for 24Hous with no need to power of the iPhone. I am going to be really MAD with the problem was REMOTE APP... I hope that helps someone. Cheers, Kyle
PS. I did not have to remove any of my email accounts. I have 4 accounts in the iPhone and they all work.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 7:15 AM (in response to Kyle A)It can't be because I have never loaded the remote and I have this issue. BTW, I went through all of the restore and set up fresh and every other thing discussed here and I too had my phone work fine for about two days, then it came back. I believe it is the mail app on the iPhone itself, because now I receive my email, open the mail app to read and/or send, then hold down the button until the mail app completely shuts down. Then I can receive and send fine as long as i hold down the button and close the mail app completely.
It still needs a fix, but at least this pain in the * work around keeps me getting my email.2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 2 iMacs, 1 Mac Book Air and 2 iPhones
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 7:18 AM (in response to Kyle A)I hope that does it for you but I've never had remote (not even sure what it does) or any other applications on my phone & I'm still having email problems. I've been having the email issue since almost the 2.0 upgrade (talk about your oxymorons) so I didn't want to complicate things by installing a bunch of apps.
Earlier this week I went a little more than 2 days with perfectly working email all while switching back & forth from edge to wifi & turning wifi off when not needed. All of a sudden after a few hours a work on edge & getting email fine, it just stopped.
Since then I've been back to the random, works for a while & then quits mode.G4 PowerBook 17, Mac OS X (10.5.4), viPod 5G, iPhone 8GB
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 7:18 AM (in response to Kyle A)Thanks for letting me know that removing the Remote application worked for you, too. It is now the 3rd day since I did it, and I still have NO TROUBLE with my emails. As you mentioned, I did not have to change any of my mail accounts. I use pop from cox and imap from Google.
Maybe this is why Apple restricts 3rd perty apps. I wonder if other apps are also respponsible on other iPhones? I wonder if Jailbroken iPhones have such problems? I have never jailbroken mine, but have been tempted before.pc, Windows Vista, iphone
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 9:08 AM (in response to adogmij)adogmij,
It CAN NOT be just down to apps... I have the same problem with my 1st gen iphone since updating to version 2 with no apps loaded, and also the same issue with my new 3G, again with NO apps loaded. I have had mail working for 2 days, then 2 days again at another time, but every time it happens again for no apparent reason.
If I had some apps on, then I may be inclined to think it could possibly be that, but I HAVE NONE!
Reading earlier posts in this now very long thread, people who have spoken to tech support say that Apple are aware of an issue with mail. If it was as simple as removing Remote or whatever else, I think they may have said so by now!
If it is working for you for now, then great! But it is by no means a final solution.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 10:07 AM (in response to mlilley01)Even though my mail is still working, I hear you. I hope that Apple fixes the problem. P.S. = I sent this earlier to the forum, but do not see it in this topic.pc, Windows Vista, iphone
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 10:41 AM (in response to nizmoz)Yes, mine's also still working as long as I keep WiFi turned off. If I turn it back on I have to reset network settings every time I move between WiFi and 3G. I can live without WiFi, though would prefer it to work, of course.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 10:45 AM (in response to hawkmoth)Well my dream is over....It stopped working... Now my iPhone even reboots itself when checking mail... What a pain... I will try having the wifi off .... ThanksMacBook Air, iPhone, iPod Nano, MacBook, Apple TV,, Mac OS X (10.5.2), Boot Camp
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 11:01 AM (in response to Tony Peddicord)I have an original iPhone with 2.0 and multiple Apps (including remote). I set everything that I could find to "Fetch" instead of "Push" and now at least I can get emails consistently without having to restart the iPhone. Sometimes emails appear to be "Fetch"'d spontaneously and other times they appear after I manually check the mailbox and hit the refresh circular arrow. But at least I'm not restarting.
So much for "Push." Soon?MBP 1.83, PowerMac G5, iPod(s), iPhone, Airport extreme/express, Apple TV, Mac OS X (10.5)
