Whaddya know how to add IMAP email to your T-Mobile G1 (Google Phone 1)?

Now you have the T-Mobile G1, congratulation to you.

How to configure T-Mobile G1 for your Exchange Server 2003/3007 e-mail?
The T-Mobile G1 phone can receive messages from your POP3 or IMAP e-mail. For Exchange Server, you need to activate your IMAP protocol. I highly recommend using secure-IMAP configuration to offer higher security while reading your e-mail using public access.

This is a simple step-by-step procedure to accomplish this task.

Add e-mail account:
1. On the Home screen, touch the Application button.
2. Touch Email. The Email setup screen appears guiding you through the process.
3. Select the IMAP to setup your Exchange Server.
4. Input your email account information e.g. email address and password, click on Manual setup.

Incoming Connection
Username: kingnet/johndoe ; where kingnet is my exchange domain and johndoe is my username.
Password: your password
IMAP Server: ; this is my exchange email server.
Port: 993
Security Type: select SSL (always); using the default port 993 for secure IMAP protocol. You need to make sure that port 993 is enable to your firewall. Contact your system or network administrator for assistance.
Click on Next.
Checking incoming server settings ... If successful, you will then configure the Outgoing Connection.

Outgoing Connection
Other information will be automatically preview by G1, check consistency of information compare to you exchange server.

Password: your password
IMAP Server: ; this is my exchange email server.
Port: 993
Security Type: select SSL (always)

not required.

Click on Next
Checking outgoing server settings ...

5. Email Checking Frequency
With T-Mobile you can choose to select every 5 minutes, 10 minutes or 15 minutes.

6. Your account is set up, and email is on its way!
Name: em @ ; this is just an example, you can use your actual name or email address if you are configuring more e-mails.

After this setup, you should be able to see your emails coming for you.

Test sending email using your T-Mobile G1 phone:
On the Home screen, touch the Application button.
Touch Email. If this is the only e-mail account, it will shows the messages right away.
Press Menu to give you the option to Refresh, Compose, Accounts and Accout Settings.
Choose  or Press Compose
In Compose screen, type the recipient address To:, Subject: and your message.
Then press Send to deliver.

Press Menu, Refresh to see if you have new e-mails.

That's for now. Post your comment here.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
