    The exchange web client reports version 8.2.176.0, which I think is 2007.

    This is not a random app. Check the link. Google screwed up email.apk after FRG01B. You can pull email.apk from FRG01B and push it to your current rom. It will solve the problem.

    It's not completely random. He took the mail app from the Sapphire distribution which I assume we can trust (????), decompiled it, altered it (!!!!!), and recompiled it. Here's what he says:

    Now I'm not programmer--oh wait, I am a programmer. If he wanted to, he could have stuck something in there to contact his web server with your mail login and password. It would be as simple as one line of code. Unless you decompile the APK he's offering for download and comb through and understand every line, you can't trust it.

    You see, I don't know who this guy is who's offering this email app. I think you'd have to be crazy to trust him. I'm really surprised how people are so willing to ask for APKs and blindly install them. If you enter passwords into that app or that app asks for permissions to access your contacts, sd card, internet, whatever...watch out!

    I'm not accusing this guy of stealing passwords. I don't know. Maybe he is, maybe he isn't. I'd have to decompile it and look at the code myself.

    wouldn't that apply to K-9 as well? I dunno. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't.

    I'm not using K-9 or this apk, but I would think your logic applies to any situation. Wallpaper app or Email app, every time you download an app, you expose yourself to issues like this.

    Ok, well I see now that it's open source... K-9 gets a pass. haha (not that I looked at the code, but at least it's there to pick through if you need to)

    K9
    -devs have been fixing and enhancing the stock client for months
    -plan to roll changes into the stock client (I think they work for google and this is their "20% project")
    -source code available
    -scrutiny of google and security researchers because k9 is widely used (and in the market)

    Random APK downloaded from a discussion board
    -oh come on!

    I'm going to have to look into this because my company has 5 Droids and we are still getting Exchange mail. I'm pretty sure we have 2007. We did have some certificate problems but worked thru them when we first got the phones back in December. We did not have any problems after the update or have to pay anything after 2.2

    The problem is with the policy requiring SSL encryption if this is turned off then you can connect. I only had luck with the BB rom being able to connect with SSL required on the server.

    I wrote up a thing about this not too far back if you look at my prior posts.

    K9 vs Touchdown vs waiting

    So... I really need to be able to check my corporate email and it suddenly stopped working after the upgrade, as did my corporate calendar. Both of these are reasons to have purchased a droid and kinda dealbreakers for me. If I do k9 does it give me my calendar back??? What about touchdown?
