    Just a heads up. Upgraded from 4.something to 5.01

    Everything semed to work fine until I tried to send an email. The
    upgrade zapped my username/password and the security settings for the
    outbound SMTP server. Once they I put them back in, I was able to send
    mail again.

    It is inconsistant.

    I upgraded both an iPad2 and a iPhone 3gs via iTunes and it came up short on
    a couple.

    Both were set up the same way, they had 6 mail accounts (all imap) on 6
    different providers, on both devices 4 of the 6 accounts transfered/updated
    just fine.

    On the iPad2, one of the accounts (ameritech/yahoo) it didn't keep or
    transfer the password, so neither the inbound or outbound mail worked. Had
    to put it (the password) in manually via settings.

    On the iPhone, that same account was able to receive mail, but like you, it
    didn't set the password for outbound mail, even though it was the same
    password/login as for the imap.

    On another account, the iPad imported everything fine but that account on the
    iPhone didn't catch the password at all like the ameritech one on the iPad.
    That too had to be put in manually via Settings.

    Seems strange to me, if they all failed it would make sense that something
    is wrong. It getting the inbound to work and not the outbound when the
    settings are the same is even stranger. And both getting 4 out of 6 with no
    problems at all.

    Weird.
