Together, EPZers know everything, right? No matter what subject you have a question about, there's always someone who knows the answer, I've found over the years.

So here's something I haven't been able to solve myself, and I'd really like some help or ideas:

Ever since the last os upgrade on my iPhone 4s, I've had trouble e-mailing photos. The phone acts as if they're sent, all the indications are there, but the photos / e-mails never arrive. I'm doing it from the film roll - selecting a photo, selecting e-mail as the method to send it, selecting the e-mail address I want to send it to. Used to work perfectly in the past, but it doesn't work at all now, although the phone acts as if it works flawlessly.

Is there a new setting I need to change?

Any ideas, anyone?

Any help you can give is greatly appreciated!

Is MMS messaging turned on? - it should be. Settings > Messages

Maybe the message is travelling under direction from Apple Maps. Give them time... Wink

Really? That didn't use to be a requirement, I could just send it as e-mail via wifi. But I'll try it and if it helps.

I've got the 4s and have just tried emailing a photo, it worked straight away for me.

Same here. Used to work quickly and flawlessly, and now it doesn't work at all. Long live OS6 - ahem!

Ha I just tried sending one and I have the same problem. Have a look in your outbox and the mail with the photo will be stuck there.
I haven't worked out how to avoid that though. It seems a solution is to make sure your default mail is a POP account and not IMAP. I tried that and the mail still went into the sent folder, but this time I could click send and it cleared out of the folder. It's not arrived at the destination though. (edit - yes it now has - bit slow!)

So what did you change? Pete used POP instead of IMAP...

I didn't change anything -(except to turn iMessage off and than back on ....but that shouldn't affect texts).......As I'm typing, another one has come through that I sent two hours ago! Am definitely using IMAP.

Update: all four trials I sent have now arrived!

Er ... oh. I'm not sure what to think of that, because it doesn't tell me what I should do to solve it.

But I'm happy for you... Smile
