Date: 2010jun28 Platform: Android Q. How do I make Android's email work with self-signed certificates? When I select "TLS (always)" I am told "Setup could not finish. Unable to open connection to server". I could select "TLS (if available)" but that's not what I want. A. As far as I can tell selecting "TLS (if available)" will use a self-signed certificate. This is what my IMAP mailserver's log says when Android check the mail:Jun 28 11:42:51 www dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<myuserid>, method=PLAIN, rip=192.168.1.1, lip=192.168.1.80, TLS Jun 28 11:44:57 www dovecot: IMAP(myuserid): Connection closed bytes=863/15292As you can see it is using TLS. So there is no need to install K-9 Mail or import your certificate as other people have suggested. I hope that Google improves the email app to let the user import self signed certs when it encounters them.
