Iphone sending and receiving email when connected to the wireless but not when using 3G..

i am just having problems setting of the office email addresses on Iphones.. ( G-mail yahoo) all work fine...
it is working for one user but he is using another ISP.. therefore i am pointing fingers at the ISP but i am having problems communicating my problem to them.. they seem to only trouble shoot the handheld..
i have tried all the normal solutions like reset to factory defaults, software updates.. and as it works on wireless i know the account settings are correct..
does anyone know if its a problem the ISP or is it something i need to change on exchange? (all pop and imap accounts work to other handhelds(blackberry nokia)
