    When I take a picture and try to send it via email it always tells me it's unable to send email and then sits in the outbox. Is there a way to find out why?

    I can send emails without attachments just fine.

    What email program? I can't use gmail. It takes 2-3 hours for the attachment to be sent. I can use hotmail and it is sent immediately. Also remember the 8mp camera make a large file to send.

    When you say what email program do you mean which app on the phone or who is my email provider? Anyway it's the standard email app that comes with the phone and my email provider for the account I was sending with is rackspace.com (use to be webmail.us)

    Yes I know it's a large file to send but it gives me a notification that it's unable to send the email but doesn't say why.

    Actually I think I just figured it out.

    I forgot the to locations I tried it I was on wifi and both locations are using FiOS which recently blocked port 25 for sending email.

    Changed to the Alternate Port 587 and works great now.
