Newer iPhone 4 emails work for awhile then randomly stop.  I've tried things like powering down the phone and turning it back on.  Tested using normal cellular data plan and then just wi-fi.  Same problem.  The little wheel just continues going around but no update.  View and searching the internet no problem.  I also have an iPad in the same area and it works fine.  While testing this afternoon, I was not able to send or receive.  All of a sudden out of the blue I got the swishing sound that an email was sent about 20-30 minutes after the test email was sent.

I have read some suggestions to delete the account and re-add it.  That does not seem applicable to this issue since the capability to send receive emails randomly comes and goes.  

Using GoDaddy IMAP email with a private domain.  All updates are current.
