    Once I upgraded to 2.1 the mail exchange it required me to put a password in. Letters and numbers. (pain in the butt.)
    The issue I have is it does not have any delay.
    If I close the screen I have to put the password in again.
    I use my phone a thousand times a day. I need to have a delay like all the other phones. 5,10 or 30 min.

    Any hack to change or add a delay? I know touchdown worked and only restricts email so I may try it.

    Also is the new mail in 2.1 moxier still like in 1.5 or is it from HTC? THe programs say it is from HTC.

    THanks for any help

    LockPicker from the market will sort you out...

    Lockpicker did not work on touchdown.
    I have not tried it on the built in app.
    Anything I need to do to make it work other than run it?
    DO I need to run it then install the exchange mail?

    Lockpicker will work with the default app just fine. Basically you just open the app, click the checkbox and you are good to go.

    I doubt it matters if you setup the email or install the app first.

    Yeah, Lockpicker works fine with the default HTC client, not sure about Touchdown...

    Never liked touchdown, very laggy for just a few more features than the stock.

    I thought that the only mail app that would acknowledge the Exchange security policy was the HTC one.

    I'm having the same password issue. I have to put a 8 character password every time it sleeps. What is lock-picker and will it work with HTC HERO?

    Lockpicker disables the remote device security policy that the Exchange administrator has put on devices connecting to the Exchange server.

    This software does work on the Hero, and your IT people might not be too cool with the fact that you are using it. So don't go bragging to them on how you circumvented their stupid security policy.
