I just discovered this morning that I can send and receive emails but I can't forward them ???? Attachment or no attachment - can't forward at all. I am using my regular email account @frontier.com and all of my settings seem right. What am I missing ?

I know how to forward them .... It's just that when I try , I get a pop up window telling me that mail can't be sent and that the settings for the outgoing server needs to be checked which is what is confusing me since I can send a regular email - I have been sending test emails to my work email all afternoon. I am sorry I should have made my problem a little clearer.....

The problem is in your Outgoing Server settings. You need to enter this information on the I Phone as they don't always carry over when you set things up.
Go to Settings, Mail, Contacts. Calendars, Click our your account > , Look for Outgoing Mail Server, then click on your SMTP server setting, make sure Primary Server is ON, then enter any other Outgoing Mail Server settings.
Are you using Outlook for email? If so you can find your email settings under Tools, Accounts settings, etc.
I used "other" when I set my mail up, it is set up through the phone and not through any of the other email choices such as gmail, yahoo ect ... I wanted to be able to use my existing email address.
I checked my settings as suggested and they look correct to me. If my outgoing settings were incorrect wouldn't that affect sending a regular email as opposed to forwarding ? Not having any problems sending ... I tried to forward a different email and it was sent (forwarded) fine. Then tried another and it wouldn't go and then another and it went. Not sure what is going on ?

Try one of the Other SMTP Servers if you have a choice. Otherwise I would start over by deleting your mail account on the I Phone, but first write down all of the settings you used, then reenter the mail account information.
Or, you could just try and reboot the phone and see if that works.
Start by holding down the sleep/wake button at the top right-hand corner of the iPhone for a few seconds.
This will bring up a screen asking you to run the slider across the screen to turn the phone off. If you donít want to do this, just hit the cancel button at the bottom of the screen.
