    I can't remember which iOS version I first encountered this issue with my gmail account not being able to send email unless I connect it via wifi with the Mail app. The weird part is if i try to send an email through the gmail app or via safari and connected using cellular data, I am able to do so. Anyone encountered this issue?

    Yes, exactly the same issue I've always had. I've gotten used to replying via the Gmail app. Hope there's a better solution out there.

    i also have the same issue using mail app sending via gmail and/or my company server but i can reply via gmail app. i think the issue is more of our local telco network speed and not app related.

    Yeah. The telco signal is suspect as well. But 8 or 9 out of 10 even on a full signal message sending fails. Will just keep on testing I guess

    Update: looks like there's something with the mail app config that's causing the issue. I have two gmail accounts configured. As soon as I took out the other gmail account, I was able to send an email using cellular data. But in the older versions of iOS, it was possible to have multiple gmail accounts.
