Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2007 12:22 AM (in response to munkydust)The following 2 solutions have been touched on briefly, each with with their own merits. First, iPhone requires IMAP (another open port - 143) in order to function as an Exchange account. First solution...if you have IMAP functioning and determine that security isn't your thing, don't set up a Certificate and turn off SSL on both incoming and outgoing messages on your iPhone. To do this, you must make the 'Advanced' menu option appear under 'Settings' > 'Mail > 'Select e-mail account'. First, create a new Exchange account on your iphone. While 'Verifying Exchange Account', it will tell you 'unable to connect using SSL'. Would you like to trying not using SSL? Select 'No' and 'Save' again. A prompt will apppear telling you that 'this e-mail may not send or receive...wish to save anyway'? Select 'Yes'. Now you will find 'Advanced' under 'Settings' > 'Mail' > 'select e-mail account'. Under this menu, you will see the option to 'Turn Off' SSL for incoming and outgoing. Once off, and assuming your IMAP server is functioning, you should be good to go.
Second option is to create an SSL Certificate for your Default IMAP4 Virtual Server. You can start by going to DefImap4VIRTServ/Properties, Access Tab/Certificate.
Sorry for going on and on.

I created an IMAP account and then canceled when it told me the certificate was not valid. Went into the "advanced" menu under settings/mail and turned SSL off... and there they were, coming down my wifi connection ! Thanks a lot !PB-G4, Mac OS X (10.5)
