Just hours ago I was able to send and receive emails through my hotmail account. Now, I am receiving the error message "cannot send mail: error occurred when delivering this message." The email then hangs pending in my outgoing box and if I try to send again, I get another message stating "unable to connect to server."


I have tried deleting the account and re-adding, restating the system network, restarting by holding both the home and lock button, and even tried clearing out my email account manually in case there wasn't enough memory left to send emails.


Can anyone please advise of a fix that has worked? I am not Mac-saavy, so anything helps. Also, this is on an iphone4.



iPhone 4, iOS 6.1.4
