I have set up my Gmail account to send and receive messages from my business email address over Exchange on my iPhone 4S. I receive all messages fine, but it doesn't send messages from my business email address unless I am logged into Gmail in a web browser.

It sounds like an outgoing mail problem. You have to have a browser tab open with your Gmail account in order for it to send? It works then? – bassplayer7 Mar 8 '12 at 23:42

The only thing to notice is the server address.

-1 for the comment. The content provided by Google is likely to change before the link does... :) – CraftyThumber Oct 27 '12 at 11:23

Navigate to Settings -> Mail -> Default Account; check that this is set to "Exchange" and not something else.
