IMAP on HTC Mogul

(and other Mobile Outlook devices)

Yes, you can setup IMAP mail on your Mogul, but Outlook Mobile isn't RFC compliant and does not let you set the mail folder prefix (like mail). It insists on using your UNIX home directory and trying to retrieve all the mail there. Heh. I have a 4+ GB home directory - the poor thing just died. Had to hard reset it.

So, I setup a brand new clean useraccount just for the Mogul to send IMAP mail -- kc0skw (at) So, if you get a mail from that address, you know it came from my Mogul. Works fine.
