    I have two email accounts on my iPhone, my main email and another for other *stuff*. So I tried to send a *sensitive* email to somebody tonight, but it said it had a problem sending. So after it went to the Outbox and trying to resend several times, I went ahead and tried turning the account off/on through the settings. After I turned the account off - I heard the (whoosh) sound and it sent the email using my MAIN ACCOUNT! WTF!!!!

    Now the person has my full name and email account! WHAT THE HELL APPLE? WTF!!! EMBARRASSING!! :mad:

    Why did you turn off the account with it still in queue to be sent? Operator error it sounds like.

    Plus, use gmail for that kind of stuff. Or at least from your computer.

    operator error? Unless it's normal procedure for the iPhone to confuse which outbox is assigned to which email, there was no operator error. I wanted to turn off/on the account to reset and see if it would send after.

    You had an E-Mail in your Outbox.

    You turned off one account leaving only one SMTP server which it used.

    I don't see how this is a bug?

    Each email account is assigned a separate inbox/outbox.

    next time, if you're sending a "sensitive" email, use your computer instead of your iphone.
