    Interesting. I had no idea. I'll have to add this to the OS7 working apps list.

    You’re using a 10 year old phone that has also been EOL for some time now.

    The email protocols have evolved over the last 10 years and are probably now at the stage where the 9780 is no longer compatible.

    It may be time for a new phone unfortunately.

    Do you have BIS on your mobile account? Service Books downloaded?

    May need to remove a company IT Policy from the phone. (I'd remove IT Policy and reload the OS if it were me.... but then I also would be bothering with a BBOS device in 2020). They just weren't made for today's networks and haven't been updated with newer security requirements.

    Lot's of great info on using those old phones on The Bold Explorer
