I recently upgraded from a Moto G 1st Gen, running Android Lollipop (I think it was 5.1.0, but might have been 5.1.1, not sure) to a Moto G 3rd Gen, Android 5.1.1 (not a huge upgrade, I know, but all I really needed was more memory and SD card capability, and something that would stay on the Refund plan). The Email app on this version has some changes, most notably, Gmail and other POP3/IMAP 4 accounts all now use the same app. I don’t mind that, that’s not my problem. Here’s the problem (it’s somewhat convoluted, so bear with me, if you will):
I have a personal domain email account that, among other things, I use to approve posts on a Yahoo discussion group. I much prefer approving from email (just read, hit Send, and that’s it) to going to the Yahoo website to do it. Well, for some odd reason, when I set the email client on my phone for IMAP4, these Moderated posts arrive as basically blank, with only the Subject line intact. I don’t know why, and I realize that’s not necessarily an Android problem. But before my current phone, I used POP3, not IMAP4, and that worked fine. Trouble is, I cannot get this account to setup as POP3 on this phone, because the Outgoing SMTP server setup does not have a “Manual” mode like the Incoming server does, and I cannot select “STARTTLS - Accept All Certificates” like I do with Incoming. The SMTP servers for my domain provider user a wildcard certificate that does not match my domain name, and so it fails certificate validation. This is the first Android phone I’ve had that was not able to connect to my personal email via POP3.
I’m not losing a whole lot of sleep over this, as it’s not something I need to do frequently, but boy, it sure is annoying and confusing.
Can anyone shed any light on this situation?
