I just noticed I have a lot of unsent emails in my local (=in the device) Outbox of my Exchange account. How can I find out why they have failed?

Can you sync new emails ? Can be the password that changed or requires to be changed due to server policies.

We are working in improvement for the error messages.

Yes, all folders but Outbox are synced wonderfully. On my Android device also sending works perfectly and the password hasn't changed for a long time.

Are the messages in the outbox with big attachments ? You can try to update from the app cover or combined inbox to see if they start sending again.

What if you write a new email, does it send ?

Alright! I deleted all the mails from the outbox and I got one test mail sent. It could have been due to two rather long video clips I had in the Outbox but just removing those mails and updating the mailbox wasn't enough to get the mails left in the outbox to fly out. Is there a log file for the Exchange client?

This is a known problem, we need better error reporting in this case, in case you want to look at EAS logs, enable logging, in:


Enable file log and add a path for the log, like for example:


Reboot the device or restart the as-daemon process.

@AnaT - Something still needed here or can be closed ? Since there's https://together.jolla.com/question/16125/bug-failing-sending-of-exchange-mails-doesnt-create-an-error-message/ for better error reporting.
