    People may need a little more info in order to help you.

    What mail service are you using?

    You get the warning, but you are then able to read mail right?

    I had a similar problem and received the same warning, but I wasn't able to retrieve or send any mail. Check your mail settings and see if they are correct. If it's a common mail account (yahoo, gmail, etc) the iphone will be able to retrieve the proper settings.

    If it isn't a common mail account, like a school mail account, then call the IT help desk to get the correct settings.

    I would suggest deleting that mail account and re-entering all of the info.

    That happens sometimes after you restore because sometimes the restore doesn't remember your Mail password. To fix, just go into your Mail settings and re-enter your password. This has happened to me before, but yours could be something different.. worth a shot.
