I have multiple email accounts on my iPhone and a limited data plan. Is there a way my email can be setup so that my "work" email will use any Internet source (3G & WIFI) while my personal email will only use WIFI?

    In your mail settings on the phone you can turn off push on your personal email accounts.  

    If you set your personal accounts to manual you can check them when you are in your network.

    Email will use whatever connection is available (wi-fi before 3G) to collect mail and you can't control mail in the way you would like to.

    If you don't have wi-fi around you regularly then to conserve data, set mail to Pull regularly instead of Push and change the frequency to a less frequent time interval.
