I have an Iphone 5S running IOS 7.1.2. Beginning on 9/17/14 (coincedentally the day IOS 8 was released) I lost access to my Verizon e-mail via the stock IOS mail app. The inability to access my email only occurs via my carrier's wireless data (T-Mobile). When I am at home on my WIFI it works just fine.
I have checked the Verizon mail settings and they are correct (explains why it still works on WIFI)
I tried deleting and re-adding the account. That hasn't worked.
The first time I noticed I lost access, I tried a phone reboot, and that worked for a while. Seems that after I connected via WIFI, it lost connection through wireless again and a reboot no longer works.
I reset carrier settings and that did not work.
It seems like there is some communication issue between T-Mobile and the Verizon mail server. My wife who has an AT&T Iphone 5 connects wireless to the Verizon server no problem.
I talked to both Verizon and T-Mobile and neither acknowledges there is a known problem. Has anyone had a similar issue lately or has a solution?
