I've recently lost the ability to access Web-based e-mail from Earthlink, either wired or wireless. Their tech support tells me they no longer support CE-based devices. Its probably some kind of security issue SMTP or the like.

Is there a workaround to this? I've seen some add-ons for Pocket PC that mimic a later browser version which enable Web mail access.

Lastly, do any USA users know of any Web-based e-mail providers that do work with HPC 2000? I could always move my site or forward e-mails there.

nPOP is a great little app. The version that works under CE doesn't support address lookups against Contacts, but book file that it creates for itself (the name of which escapes me at the moment) is a simple tab-delimited text file that consists of two fields for record:

[email address] [display name]

So, it's very easy to export Outlook Contacts out to a tab-delimited file, and then open it in Notepad and do a find & replace to replace the " marks with nothing. Save the result, rename it to the name that nPOP is looking for, and copy it over.

The other nice thing about nPOP is that it leaves the email on the server unless you mark it for deletion and run another send/receive cycle. Very handy if you want to keep a copy of the mail on the server to download to a PC later.

qmail3 does support address lookups (or it may even do autocomplete? can't remember now)

every email client should have that setting by default (leaving the the emails on the server). never saw a client that wouldn't have that by default

Can anyone explain how to set up security certificates with Qmail? So, say Earthlink requires a SSL connection, and you have the certificate, where and what do you name it?
