    Just got a touchpad for the Wife's b-day (really mine :^) and I wanted to check my work email but unless I am blind there was no way to type in https: to get there. I did search the site but did not find a specific answer.
    Would a modified browser be any help?

    Thanks

    If you are talking about the email app then you just put the mail server address in, minus the https:// part. To get to log in securely, look for the encryption box and change it to SSL with its respective port. This will give you that https:// part.

    Thanks, I hadn't tried anything but getting there from the browser.

    You should be able to get there from the browser... not sure what you mean by no way to type in https...
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    From the web browser, look for the address bar at the top and input the FULL URL with the https:// at the beginning is all that is needed to access the email from a secure port. This is assuming that the email site has SSL access via the web protocol of course.

    It's even easier than you think. Open up the web browser, hold down the slash (/) button to the left of the spacebar, select "https:" from the popup. Save a few keypresses.

    I use a secure web mail site on my TP. I'm not sure where you are having trouble.
    Open the web browser (globe on the launcher bar) and your cursor is automatically in the address bar. Just start typing in the address (https://***.***.***). You have to switch to symbols on the virtual keyboard to find the colon (.
    If you are still having trouble, please be more specific.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, this is what I needed. I couldn't even figure out how to get the :// in the url bar.

    Maybe even easier yet. I could win the lottery and forget about work email!

    The : and / are in the symbol keyboard page, not on the main one.

    Nice tip on holding the / down, though.
