    I'm not sure if this is the right section, but here goes.

    I have an iPhone 5S and my Mail App seems a bit temperamental.

    More often than not, I'll open the App, and this will pop up:


    I then type in the password, only for it to pop up with the exact same thing again, straight away. This usually happens for about 3-4 password entries, and then finally, it eventually logs me in and my inbox is refreshed/updated.

    When it's actually logged in, I do get email notifications, but I am not getting emails, due to it "logging out" by itself all the time. To check my mail, I actually have to open the App up and go through the password hassle nearly every time. Very rarely does it stay logged in.

    Any ideas as to how I can fix this and keep my Mail App logged in all the time?

    I've had this happen before for my mail accounts (not an Outlook account) but it is infrequent.
    Usually I have to do it twice (one pop-up followed by a second). Then I don't see it again for some time.
