Today out of the blue my iPhone 4S will not retrieve my email (MSN). I restarted the phone, I checked the user ID and password. Both were okay. I turned off wi-fi, I changed "fetch" settings and all that is happening is the phone is 'searching' but never connects or finds or downloads email. I changed my password and can retrieve emails on my MAC just not on my phone. I search in the mail app and can see sent emails but no new mail. I am now running the latest software, 8.1.3. Help, Thanks,

Need some info.... Which protocol are you using to get your mail from MSN; POP or IMAP? And do you have iCloud setup on your iPhone and Mac?

I deleted the account and re-created it and it works fine now. Thanks for your interest.
