My email provider recently switched to using Office365 on the backend. I had no say in this, so it’s a bit frustrating. I finally found the imap setting for my accounts, and set about configuring K-9 to use them, since it’s kind of the point to have email on a cell phone that actually downloads email.
I have multiple email addresses and accounts. So I’ve gone through and configured them one by one. At first I tried normal, and encrypted password both of which failed. I then, given my knowledge in the profession, figured maybe OAuth 2.0 (a known security measure in webservices from Microsoft’s TFS) might be the ticket.
Upon selecting OAuth as the method, it went to a “login screen” via an internal web browser. I was able to log into 3 of my 4 accounts. The 4th account however, is giving me backlash of an invalid password.
I have tried deleting that account, restarting the app, restarting the phone, and every time I try to re-add that account, I do not get a “ENTER PASSWORD” on the OAuth login screen. It is like K-9 has saved (even when I told it not to) whatever mistyped password was put in the first time, and i can’t tell it to “hey, let me reenter that information!” What if I want to change the password for my email, I’m eternally locked into the first password I’ve entered.
For an account in K-9, how to I tell it to PURGE an OAuth Certificate, or password information to inspire it to allow me to reenter that information.
