    Had same issue -EASY FIX:

    Go into SETTINGS--MAIL,CONTACTS,CALENDARS--Click on Account--Click on account name--under "Outgoing Mail Server" click on the name of your outgoing mail server--click on the name of your primary server--add your username and password--verify authentication type (probably password)---click "Done"


    Try forwarding email from account and it should now work!

    I think the solution to this problem also depends on what phone network you are on. There seems to be a lot of people who AOL who have found the solution by putting in the username and password details on the outgoing server section. That must be a requirement for AOL, and other networks.


    The solution for me wasn't to put my username and password in the outgoing server section as well as the incoming server, but to upgrade to iOS5.


    I haven't had a problem since.

    Just got new iPhone 4s and couldn't send emails, server doesn't allow relaying. Solution: general settings -reset - reset network settings. Once this is done go to mail, contacts, calendar and add new account.

    Anhstolt's fix above worked for me. 



    Mail, contacts, calendars




    Turn server off

    Add server

    Maybe someone should copy and paste the entire thread onto an AOL forum on the same subject. There seems to be a lot of AOL users having problems.


    I'm not or have ever been on AOL, and I haven't had these problems since I updated to iOS5.
