Can anyone suggest a reason. It used to work. I removed Skype which had messed up DH's Note but still the emails on my S2 sit in the outbox and cannot be sent. Any thoughts. DH would be grudgingly impressed if the Angry Birds of Mumsnet have the answer. Thanks.

Bumping for the evening traffic. I promise I did a search first to look for the solution

Have you checked that Mobile Data and/or Wi Fi are on?

Is it gmail you are using, or the Samsung app?

If you're using a different (non-gmail) address, whuch you also check from a computer, maybe your ISP recently changed settings? Most have a page telling you your smpt server name, which number port, etc. Smtp is for outgoing mail, so concentrate on that.

I use the Samsung app but also ymail for yahoo. Will check ISP.

Well I have restored some functions by changing to ymail instead of a Samsung app. Still tinkering but thanks for the help.

Does it now forward emails?

Sorry for delay! Yes it will beas long as I use the ymail app.

May I ask for advice in my turn? What"s the yahoo app like? I find gmail very user-unfriendly, particularly trying to sort by sender, or by size of attachment, or subject. Does yahoo allow you to do any of that?

It's a purple app button called ymail which was probably found initially by googling yahoo mail for Samsung.

Oops.
Never tried much sorting. Use laptop for that.
