Since Windows Mobile 2003 has been
released, some have reported
problems getting email where their
previous Pocket PC 2002 devices had
no problems with the same server.
It may be a combination of more
advanced features in the new Inbox
client and a misconfiguration on your
ISP's server. If your email server has
SSL enabled but it isn't working for
whatever reason (no certificate,
mis-configured, etc.) Pocket PC 2003
will fail. It sees the server is SSL
capable and when it can't negotiate
a secure connection, it just gives up
and reports a failure to you.
Pocket PC 2002 devices of course
didn't support SSL so they never
knew the SSL connection wasn't
The answer is a registry hack.
I don't recommend you do this
unless you have this problem as it
could disable your ability to use
email servers that are properly SSL
configured, or your email is done
over an open unsecured connection.
This seems to be a system wide
setting, not a per inbox setting.
1. For registry key:
create new DWORD ForceOffSSL and give it a value of 1.
2. Soft-reset device (or stop Inbox and restart Inbox)
