    I added a second email account to my Mail program on my Mac, which was added to my iPhone when I synced. Email going to that account pushes to the iPhone just fine, but when I try to send an email via that account from the iPhone, I get a message that reads:

    Cannot Send Mail
    No password provided for "account name".

    Please go to Mail Account Settings and enter a password.

    However, when I go to the account settings on iPhone, there is clearly a password entered into the password field. What might I be missing?

    I figured it out. The password I was seeing was for the incoming server. I was missing the outgoing password.
