      no problem. i left blackberry off my list actually. Windows Mobile was the surprising one as I've never seen it advertised. But I just typed in my email address and password into the HTC Touch Diamond and it automatically synced me up with IMAP server. It's great.

       

      However, Ryan, is it possible if we could have clarification whether this password security problem is specific to Zimbra or to any application using Yahoo's IMAP servers? Having had my account hacked into recently, I'm keen to avoid this again. I'm beginning to wonder whether this was the source of how it happened in the first place.

       

      Many thanks

      Gabriel

      Thanks very much for the info.

      Ryan, as far as I can tell, one can access Y Mail on IMAP via Zimbra, iPhone and Windows Mobile 6 - I use the latter on my HTC Touch Diamond and it works a treat. Is the issue of unencrypted passwords being sent over the IMAP server specific to Zimbra or all programs using IMAP for Yahoo Mail?

      Thank you
      Gabriel

      If you have been using the desktop client, please consider switching to the web client for the time being.
