    Sixth, is yours hacked? Apple might be sending out something that messes up hacked hardware..

    Without wanting to be picky, IMAP isn't used for sending mail - outgoing mail goes through SMTP.
    That aside, it works fine here on my Google Apps account (which uses the same servers)

    Not working for me either...well, on my computer it's not, haven't tried sending anything from my iPhone yet.

    [UPDATE] OK it tested fine from my iPhone and everything received fine on the computer and iPhone, so now it's a thing of sending from my computer. Well damn Sam. And my account settings are correct...

    Have you checked the email address you're sending too? Google's servers will not accept any illegal formatting. For example, for a few days I was trying to send a message but the imap servers kept on rejecting it. After closer inspection I realised that I had typed ",com" instead of ".com".

    Maybe that will help you?

    Well, it seems as though I got it to work on my laptop now that I have checked that the server requires authentication...will check on my desktop in a little bit to see if it works from there.

    Hopefully this fixes my issue, and hopefully the OP is in the same situation.

    [UPDATE] I checked the same setting on my desktop and it sends now, so that seems to have been my issue. Make sure that if you're using Outlook in the "Outgoing Server" tab in the account properties that it's checked that authentication is required.

    I use gmail on my iPhone and haven't had any problems with it. If it's never worked for you, I'd say it's a bad configuration. Doublecheck all your settings.

    It didn't work for me either! I had to delete the whole account (IMAP and SMTP settings) and re enter them from scratch.

    Deleting the account and re-adding it worked. It was also experienced by another user. I am on 1.1.1 he's on 1.1.2 so don't know if it was AT&T or gmail but it seems to be ok.
