Hi, I have an smartphone and I can't select the "account" to fix.

Can you post here which "registry keys" do you change to fix the accounts?

Thanks

Hi,
I'm afraid that there is no registry key behind the fix... I use some wm5 native functions to fix the configuration. Thoses functions can only be called by writing a piece of software in C++.

Anyway, is your smartphone running wm5 ? What device is it ?

When you say that you can't select the account to fix, does it mean that you cannot enter into the list box ? If it's the case, perhaps I can add a little button to switch between accounts.

Hi Nicolas,

In fact I have a WM5 smartphone (T-Mobile Dash), Since this is an smartphone (no touch screen), I can't access to the accounts pop-up menu.

If you can add a button or have a way to select the accounts using the navigation keys that woul be great.

Thanks again!

Ok,
I've just updated the version. There is a small button ( ">" ) which allow to switch between accounts.

Hope it helps.

Nico.

Hi Nicolas,

Hi Nicolas,

I just have one more question: When I run your utility I'm able to recover the emails accounts but after I switch to another app, your apps keep popping-up, if I go to task manager and kill, it comes back after several seconds and I have to soft reset to get rid of it. Do you know why is this happening?

Thanks
Freddy Reyes

Hi Freddy,

It's a strange behaviour that a don't experience with my pda.
I have added a "Quit" button to explicitly exit the apps.
Can you please have a try ?

Euh ... are you seeing buttons "Quit" and "About" on the bottom of the screen ? I ask the question because the screen resolution on your device is probably 176 x 180 pixels...

Finally I've take the time to install the smartphone sdk :) So a version for wm5 smartphone will be available tonight (french time).

Nicolas Mauri a dit…

The smartphone version is available (see the blog's message). The PDA version has also been updated.

Hope it helps :)

Nicolas,
If I want to keep the account information (server and pass) in the file email.txt, how can I do it for more than 1 account? Wich is the format

Note:
I tried to paste the file email.txt that I have modified but I get an HTML error when publising

Marius Oancea a dit…

Great Application,

I just installed WM6 and lost my accounts after first getting out of battery.

I tried to recreate the account but WM6 complains it exists.

I used this small software and worked.

Nicolas Mauri a dit…

Jorge, sorry for the delai.
I will try to update the soft before the end of next week in order to allow more than one account in the config file.

Nicolas Mauri a dit…

Version updated ! :)
You can now repair more than one account and their settings are stored automatically in a config file.

Super application!!!
:-)

It recovered all my missing e-mail accounts. I was very tired of WM5 at that time...

I used the tool on a QTEK 9090 running WM5. It worked flawlessly.

Peter

How do you install this application on WM6. Thanks a lot.

Yellowchilli a dit…

thank you that worked great.

Thank you very much for this application. It helped me recover my ghost email account on an HTC Touch Diamond with WM6.1.

It took some searching before I found your util, but I'm really happy I did!

Kudos!

Hi,

I'm running a ipaq 6915 with wm5, but the screen resolution is only 240 X 240 which meeans the "fix" button is below the screen and there doesn't appear to be a scroll option, is this fixable?

Cheers

Andy

Anonyme a dit…

es, I have the same problem, IPAQ screen resolution does not show 'FIX' button.

Nicolas Mauri a dit…

Hi,
I'll try to do something this week for small resolution pda.
But I thing there is a possible workaround: by using the auto-repair feature.
I'll try to post a complete workaround asap.

Nicolas Mauri a dit…

Updated.
You know have an item "Repair" in the menu "Options". I hope everybody can see this menu ;o)

Hello Nicolas,

I have the problem that I can not edit or create e-mail accounts in WM6 Messaging. I hpe that your program can solve this. I have downloaded it .How can I open it and how do I install it on the PDA?
regards MB

Nicolas Mauri a dit…

Hi, you just have to copy the files into your pda. There is no need to install it. The process to follow is described on http://nicolasmauri.blogspot.com

Angellus971,
Merci pour ton message, ça fait toujours plaisir de voir que ce petit logiciel continue d'être utile.
Une très bonne année 2009 à toi aussi.

Nicolas,

I tried to install the program on my HP214 with WM6 and I got the following problem:
1)
In the settings to apply I can enter only one password, but my server requires a different one for in and outgoing mail
2)
the problem in messaging still exists: it is the following: when I open messaging I can not enter or edit an account, the button new account does not exist, when I click on the new account it only opens the outlook account.
what can I do?

regards

MB

I have a big problem! Using Mailrepair I erased sms account and now can not receive and send text messages on my eten X500. Is there a way to recreate the SMS account? Thank you for your work.

Best regards

Nicolas Mauri a dit…

Hi,
the last solution will be to hard reset your device. I'm not sure how we can delete sms account with this tool and as I don't have a PDA running WM anymore, I can't try to reproduce. Sorry.
