Now to see if my IT department will make the necessary changes...
I finished up rooting 2.2 and I'm now using UD8.0 as of today. I tried getting on outlook and sure enough it worked! It made me say ok to letting the server be allowed to remote wipe my phone. It also made me have a pin/password. I don't know what the difference between stock FRG22D and rooted FRG22D+UD8.0 is but whatever it is it worked.
Settings>>Accounts>>your email account>> Then select incoming server or outgoing server.
When I first started looking into the issue of my email not working, I noticed that the incoming and outgoing server information did not have the "mail." infront of the email provider name.
Here is an example of what it should be for incoming and outgoing servers. mail.example.com I am guessing that if you check, it will show example.com(this was the way mine was) instead of mail.example.com.
Hope this makes sense.
So my exchange email worked FINE until the new update... now nothing. my server has the mail prefix and all. and I know it's not my company becuase SO many others use email that syncs to their phones and theirs works. It's just this damn Droid and the update. I don't want to have to download a workaround program, i just want this one to work. any ideas?
