    I have updated my iphone 4 to ios 6. The problem is that the toolbar at the bottom of Mail has disappeared! I receive mail no problem and can read it but I have no option to write a new mail, forward a mail, flag a mail etc....

    Any ideas how to get it back??

    Found a fix on an old forum: press power button until power off slider screen appears, then press and hold home button for 5 - 10 seconds until screen resets.
    Happy again :)

    That fix no longer works. You get the voice control and there isn't a power off bar. I'm having the same problem.

    Actually it does work. I tried it again and it works. Thanks.

    Just reset mail

    1) Close mail on the iPhone or iPad ...
    2) double press the home button ...
    3) hold your finger over the mail icon until you see the 'x'
    4) touch the 'x' for mail to completely close the app
    5) Press home to exit the running apps
    6) Re-launch mail

    When you close the app it's still running in the background. Doing these steps shuts it down completely and when you relaunch the icons should be there.:)

    This problem just happened to a friend of mine who recently bought an iPhone 5. The solution above ("force quitting" the Mail app) solved the problem.

    But it put a little tarnish on that story I'd always told her about how simple iOS is to use.

    Power down the phone.

    Powering down the phone worked for me. I had the same problem and "rprossor" had the fix! Thanks much!
