A few days ago my iPhone stopped downloading new emails. The Mail app now brings up an error:
Cannot Get Mail
The connection to the server failed.
Though it can't connect to the server to download or send emails, it can connect to verify my username and password:
This email address is working just fine using my laptop.
Some things I've tried that didn't fix the problem:
- going into airplane mode and back out
- restarting the device
- reentering my mail account settings
- deleting the mail account and creating a new one
- iPhone 5
- iOS 7.1.2
