I have an email account that is secure and requires the use of SSL encryption on the incoming server. My original droid gave the option of choosing SSL or TLS encryption when setting up an email account. The razr doesn't give the option. Does anyone have any ideas how to work around this?

Workaround

I found a workaround. I added a yahoo account to my phone, and then forwarded all of the email from the account I couldn't set up to that yahoo account. It is working great. Hope that helps.
