I installed 4.1.1 on a MB525 (Defy) according to the honorable post in <http:[url]....
One thing I am missing is: Configuration options for the IMAP account are not as fine granular as in the stock Motorola. Especially I can't configure to an IMAP server supporting the following:
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE STARTTLS AUTH=PLAIN AUTH=DIGEST-MD5 AUTH=CRAM-MD5] Dovecot ready.
Means: IMAP with STARTTLS and encrypted (MD5) password
What is supported by the 4.1.1: None, SSL/TLS, SSL/TLS (all certs accepted), STARTTLS, STARTTLS (all certs accepted).What I would need is STARTTLS with password encryption md5 (automatically detected or fixed configurable).
So, I'm new to the Android family and I'm curious about the Super User Account. I have no desire to root and install custom mods, I just want the ability to remove all the bloat ware associated with the phone.
My understanding is that I will need to unlock the boot loader, and then install "something" to create the Super User account.
We will be replacing our Palm Treo 755s with HTC EVOs. I have one now and am tasked with getting all the synchronization set up and working for the 30 attorneys and administrative staff I support. The only issue I am having is that I am unable to see, let alone open attachments on emails I receive on the phone. I can see that the message has an attachment because it has a paper clip next to the subject/sender in the email list. When I open the email, I see no evidence of an attachment. One thing I just figured out was that I can open PDF attachments as the phone came with a PDF viewer, but cannot open .DOCs even though I have installed the Docs Togo basic program. (It includes the DOC and XLS viewers). Is this not sufficient to open the attachments? If not is there some other FREE app that will allow me view these attachments on my EVO?
One of the primary reasons for getting my Incredible was to integrate my business email.However, no matter what I try I cannot get my account to authenticate.Using a telnet app on the phone I can connect to port 143 on my mail server and authenticate but NOT with the built in app.I can, however, access my personal email on the same server and gmail.Has anyone had any difficulties with IMAP and if so, what might have been done to overcome that?
I'm absolutely loving this thing so far. So easy to use, type etc, and the screen is gorgeous. Having a tough time deciding on screen proecto or not. I have my personal email setup on IMAP. When I tell the mail program to download anything more that 3 days worth of email, it skips the most recent week of new mail. So email I get today doesn't show up. If I use today or 3 days, it seems to work. I would like to have 14 days worth of email but can't figure why it won't work.
I was wondering if it were possible to dynamically create an XML layout file to be displayed to the user. The idea would be to be able to retrieve a layout file from a central server, which could display this dynamic, server driven GUI.
Other questions say that the style cannot be set programmatically, but a View can be initialised with a style such as when it is loaded from XML.How can I initialise a View with a particular style programmaticly (not in XML)? I tried using View(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle), but I don't know what to parse in for the second argument. Passing in null results in the View not being displayed
I am having some very annoying email problems that I have fought with for almost a week, researched and tried multiple programs, and followed about every tutorial on this and similar sites to make work. My school system's email provider is junk, but since I'm a traveling teacher (I bounce between schools) it is very important that I be able to receive and reply to emails from administrators and other teachers. I'm coming from five years of Blackberry email, where all it took was inputting my address and password in the BIS email page and never having to give it a second thought.
So far, here's a rundown on what's happened and what I've tried: 1. Using My Accounts and the stock email program, my email address has been added. It will not connect when set up as a POP3 account; I must set it as an IMAP account to retrieve any emails. No matter what port setting I use (25 or 587), I cannot send or reply to email. 2. Using K-9 email, I am able to download email as POP3 with standard settings (port 110). As with the built-in client, I am unable to reply to or send emails. 3. Before you ask, 587 never worked. I've tried. 4. The email address is configured in accordance with our service provider's instructions.. 5. This issue has occurred in the same manner on both 2.1 and 2.2.
I have been trying to setup my schools email account via google apps but to no avail. I have gotten count less errors both on the gmail and email app. Typical errors include "invalid credentials", "rejected", or something of that nature. I have also tried setting my username to "email@example.com" , "firstname.lastname@example.org", or simply "anon". These are the settings I use:
Incoming mail settings Imap Imap.gmail.com Port 993 SSL
I won't bother including outgoing email settings because I have yet to even make it past the incoming settings page.
I have setup three imap email accounts on my new DROID and for the most part they are working great. The only problem I seem to be having is they will not check for messages every 5 minutes like I have it setup to do. If I open each folder it will check and download fine but no alerts or downloads without me checking.
I can access my AOL, Comcast and obviously Gmail with no problems on my Droid. However I want to be able to access my companies email I have set up through powweb.com (they host my website). Anyway I keep getting error messages that it could not finish set up or sometimes it says Error: check user and password details. I triple checked and made sure I was putting in the right info and then I even went on the powweb website and made sure I was putting in the correct settings and even contacted someone there and they gave me some info to try and help and I am still getting error messages. I have tried POP and IMAP. The exchange account, is a fee based account.
I've just got my HTC Desire and configured it all as standard i.e. followed the install walkthough. It is now up and running but I've noticed within my GMAIL account some IMAP folders have arrived, these are new folders all emails that are used on the phone now arrive with one of these labels on. I tried changing the titles of these within GMAIL but then it sets up the Imap ones again. anyone know if I can either get the phone to stop doing this, or if I can change the label?
I have 2 hotmail accounts, a gmail account, and another account. After doing some digging it seems that the only IMAP IDLE or other push-email support for hotmail is if you have a BB. There was something about a new feature coming out with the next windows live update but that is a while away.
1. What I'm trying to do is get my gmail set up in K-9 with the IMAP IDLE. As I understand it this is near enough instant email delivery which is exactly what I need. I entered my details into K-9 using the automatic account setup. Is there a drawback to this? What about security like SSL/TLS? and authentication? And whats this about compression on Mobile/WiFi/Other networks?
I sent an email from my hotmail to test if IMAP IDLE was working. It took a 3 minute delay for both my desktop and phone to pick up the email.
I am running K-9 2.6 on a Hero 1.5
2. It is likely it was just the latency between email servers at peak time, but are there any steps I could take to tune K-9 into a leaner meaner email receiver? In the options I see 1st class folders, 2nd class folders, folders to check with push, other folder options, configuring ingoing/outgoing mail servers.
3. I understand that the 1st/2nd class are priorities but what do the above options mean for me?
4. I'm going to forward both hotmails to my gmail. Any ideas for a better setup? Or have they tried similar and had problems?
I just switched from the HTC eris to the Droid and had no issues with IMAP on the eris which is running 1.5 OS. What's happening is I setup my personal domain email as imap and all works. I mark all messages in the inbox as read. When new email comes in it marks the entire inbox as new. I've deleted the account multiple times and done a hard reset. I even tested this in the store on 2 phones.
Moto doesn't have an answer and I found this thread on the VZ forums Droid IMAP emails always Unread - Verizon | Forums and Blogs - Verizon Community which the OP is using the same hosting company as I am. I've never had a problem on a WinMo, BB or iPhone setting it up the same way. Something seems off but not sure what it is. I've setup GMail via the same mail app and that's working.
Droid X - Configured with a Google Apps Premiere, working great. Attempting to add a personal GMail account. Go to the GMail app, select add account, fill in the metrics and then...... "Needs to communicate" message for ~ 3 minutes, then bombs out with - "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server". 3G is fine, on a wifi connection that is fine, web browser works fine..... Google Apps account works fine.
Migrating to a new Gmail account without losing everything Android related? Like a few people I know, I made a Gmail account a few years ago before android was this big and (like the naive child I was) didn't make a very professional email address. Migrating to a new Gmail account I created. Copying contacts and mail is easy enough, but what about everything related to Android?
I'm trying to add a second gmail account (my wife's), and I keep running into a response message after a couple of minutes, saying "Can't establish a reliable data connection on the server". I've tried forcing the transaction through Wi-Fi and cellular paths, always with the same result.
I see any number of threads in a variety of forums with this problem, going back months, but I didn't find any viable solutions. The most common solution offered is to do a factory reset on the phone, which I'm not near ready to do yet.
Any way to use a non-google e-mail address to setup a google account? I could've sworn this was possible before. I'm basically getting my kids Nexus 7's but rather than sign them all up for gmail when they already have e-mail accounts, I was hoping I could just use their existing e-mails for simplicity.
