What if my email stops sending/receiving after a software update?

This sometimes happens, even if the email settings have not changed. In most cases, the best way to fix this is to remove the account from your phone and set it back up from scratch as an Exchange account. This applies to both Android and iOS devices.

I receive the message that my passphrase is incorrect or expired.

You are required to change your ECU passphrase every 90 days. You will also need to update this passphrase on your mobile device to be able to log in to your email.
