Would appreciate XTRA email users who have been migrated to the new NZ based SMX Email platform.


I actually like the Yahoo IMAP Client for Android very much but I understand that it no longer works once an account has been migrated.


What Android email client you find works well with the SMX platform? I prefer IMAP Email client but prepare to go POP if necessary. Appreciate thought from people who have been migrated.


The reason I ask for real world feedback is that not all Android IMAP/POP clients work well with all email providers. Seems odd as I thought as long as IMAP/POP protocols are supported things should work just fine.


I learned the hard way .... My experience has been only YaHoo IMAP client works well with Yahoo Mail.

Aquamail imap works perfectly, with both the old & new xtra
Imap is pretty common on phones. I cant see why you would have any issues now or in the past.
It must have been your setup, imap xtra is on thousands of phones .


Outlook on PC's is where imap has issues , and the fact that in the past yahoo/xtra didnt offer any official imap help, even though
it worked OK .

I'd look for a IMAP client which supports RC4 (which is any recent client really)




The Yahoo IMAP settings should have worked fine on the basic andriod app too.


Do be aware if you are wanting to use the calander/contact syncing you will need to setup that using the system.
