@mckinleaf Nice one, well done for sorting it and posting for others to see.

Ironically, after I'd posted here about K9 I ran into a problem that took me a bit of head scratching to sort out.

I'd had to change the password on a couple of accounts, so when I tried to access them on my Android phone using K9 it asked me for the new password, all was fine until I went to send a message from one of the accounts but then it refused to send, having gone back to my laptop and finding that would send fine I was baffled for a while, then a random nose through all the settings within K9 for each account I stumbled across the problem, it has two lots of setting for each account, one for checking for emails and the other for sending, for some reason it had only changed one of the passwords, once I changed the password manually in the sending config it worked fine. Now I know it does that I just make sure I edit it anytime I change the passwords Smiley Happy Smiley Happy
