    This has been an on and off issue since I purchased the iPhone 4. Seems a restart resolves it but I can never be too sure. I don't know what causes it though.

    I have 5 accounts setup. My fetch accounts are not fetching. I have to manually go in and let it check, then it finds them.

    Anyone else having this issue? It's a little annoying. Anyone know what might be causing it? :confused:


    Thanks!

    Had the same problem yesterday with Hotmail. Not sure what caused it, but it seamed to self correct; I'm now getting emails without having to manually check.

    Son I posted a thread about this Thursday. It must be a but with 4.0.1. If you delete the account and re-install it then push might work

    I have a similar issue with 4.1 Beta.

    All my accounts stopped receiving all at once and the phone claimed by passwords were incorrect.

    I had to delete and re-add all the accounts to fix the issue.

    It's not just 4.0.1. I'm still on 4.0 and it happens maybe every other day (along with the "phantom" messages that show up as dated 12/31/69). Restart takes care of both, but it's kind of a pain to have to do that (especially when I depend on the phone to alert me when I have email. There have been times I was unaware that push had quit working and when I went to check it it downloaded 18 emails from hours before. Grr.)

    I don't. The only time I restart is if something crashes and the phone locks up and requires it, when the phone gets glitchy (which does happen every so often), or when I update.

    It's normal for me to never restart the phone for weeks at a time.

    What he ^ said.

    I have done it a few times with past iPhone models but the iPhone 4 seems to have more issues requiring it more frequently. I never turn my phone off unless I need to.

    Anyone have any fixes for this?

    I have removed two accounts and added them back in. Same issue. Some days I have no problem, lately I am not getting any email fetched. I have to manually go in and check and I get a flood of emails coming in from hours ago. It's really aggravating. :(

    Same issues on 4.0.. Im running comcast and I wont get new emails unless I click into the mail icon. Then after reading the new mail, I get doubles of each about a min or two later. Im also getting the phantom 12/31/69 emails.

    Well, I did some searching and found a thread over on the Apple forums with users having the same issue. They think it has something to do with the PUSH feature not working with Apple's Multitasking of the email application.

    The solution - turn of PUSH in the email settings.


    I was surprised. It works. My emails are coming in like clockwork now. Hopefully they address this issue in the coming update.

    Hope this helps someone else. :)
