    I set up my email and it made me create a lock password, but I don't want to have to enter a password everytime I use it. But when I go to turn off the password lock, the option is grayed out! Is there a way to work around this?

    Can somebody just check if they're able to turn off their password lock after linking an email account? Please?

    Are you referring to this passcode lock? Then yes, it can be turned off.

    I have no idea why you had to setup a passcode lock in the first place. It shouldn't be necessary.

    If you set up email using Microsoft Exchange, the a Passcode is required. There is no getting rid of it.

    I can turn the passcode lock off, even though I have an MS exchange mail account (hotmail) set-up. But there are also three non-exchange mail accounts set-up, perhaps these alleviate the need for the passcode lock?

    okay I figured it out. You just go to the mail account and turn off SSL. This can be done with exchange accounts.

    oh, it appears I was wrong. I don't know what ssl is, but turning it off seems to render the account useless.

    SSL is used for encrypting the connection between Mail and the exchange server. So if you turn if off, the server may simply refuse the connection, as it is not secure.
