Qtmail on Om 2008.8
E-mail button is available after configuring outgoing account.

Qtmail is one of the applications that runs on the Openmoko Phones. For a list of all applications, visit Applications

Qtmail is the default mail application on Om 2008.8. It is called Messages on the main screen. Qtmail supports POP3, IMAP, SMTP, SMS, MMS, EMS.

Basic setup

To send e-mail you need to set up at least one outgoing e-mail account. After this setup you can start sending e-mails from your Contacts list too.

  • Start Messages
  • Click Options and choose Account settings...
  • Click Options and choose Add account...
  • Configure your e-mail account and outgoing server settings

Configuration for encrypted mail

qtmail is already installed by default so we don't need to install it but it doesn't support ssl/tls by default...so we will make it use ssl/tls

cd /usr/lib
ln -s libssl.so.0.9.7 libssl.so
ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.7 libcrypto.so

then we need to import our certificate... change myprovider accorging to your settings: on your desktop computer do:

openssl s_client -connect myprovider:port -showcerts

examples:

  • gmail:
    • myprovider:imap.googlemail.com
    • port:993
  • yahoo
    • myprovider:?
    • port:?


copy the part between(and including ):

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

you will need the c_rehash script, which is not in the OM repositories. as it is a perl script, it can be copied direct from your desktop/laptop. it will be in /usr/bin . copy it to the same location on your neo, ensure it is permitted to execute, then:

put it in a file,that you will put on a folder,then do

c_rehash /path/to/the/folder

then copy the content of the folder to /opt/Qtopia/etc/ssl/certs/

then it should work...you only need to configure it according to your mail provider settings
