how do I eliminate annoying popup message "cannot get mail"?

by d838 / August 16, 2014 11:11 PM PDT

iPhone 5s, iOS7.1.2, when I open mail the "cannot get mail The connection to the server failed" message continues to popup. Several attempts tapping "OK" before I can access mail.

Its annoying. What can I do to eliminate the message?

I feel like that safety net on high wire acts at times.

Glad it helped but that message is hard coded into the app. Hence by statements. Anyhow, glad you worked it out.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
