Can the iPhone send photos by email?

The feature is there. The interface is slick. My default mail account is setup. But I’ve tried it three (3) times now, and I still have yet to see any email from my iPhone. What’s going on? Am I just missing the email, or has anyone else had trouble with sending photos with the iPhone?

    I am having the same problem. have you been given any advice?

    It’s probably a problem with your outgoing (SMTP) email server. Can you send regular email without photos?

  3. Matt says:

    When I try and send photos, I get an error message that tells me to Check the account settings for the outgoing server “”

    But I have no idea what I’m checking for.

      Hi samiie, you can also try transferring the photos with a photo organization program like Picasa. You can transfer photos when your iPhone is connected to your computer for syncing. On the Mac, you can use iPhoto.

    Hi THere,

    Till now for almost 10 days i tried to email photos from my iphone (cracked) but was disappointed but now i feel happy…u just need to go to mail settings & select the default mail account fill in the details like your email account username & password & u r done but there is a limitation if u have a large sized photo to send it will resize it to 640+420 …

    hope this solves your problem of emailing pix from your iphone…?

      Can you show me how to email photos from the iphone(cracked) because it still won’t allow me to do it after following all the steps you mentioned above.

        Open the photo through the camera application on your iPhone. Once you open the photo you want to send, select the bottom right most icon. This will create an email with the photo in it.
