Hello and Thank You for allowing me assist you with your question or issue today!

Are you using this iPhone with an Exchange Server account?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No I am not using with an Exchange Server account. I will eventually receive the email on my iPhone and this message does not appear 100 percent of the time.
I am receiving all my email on my MacPro, iPhone and iPad. (3 devices)
Could they be causing problems if more than one device is downloading email?
It shouldn't I do the same. I would then delete the account and reinstall it.
