    Anyone had luck getting IMAP to work with SSL on a non-standard port? My IMAP server runs at a 10xxx port and when I specify this port (using hostname : port) in the iPhone mail app, the verification fails instantly. It claims it can't reach the server, but it's clear that it's not even hitting the network--just failing instantly.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Yep, I tried this too. I was working on setting up a gmail gateway at home and didn't want to have a well-known port open. I bumped up the port and tried using servername.com : portnumber(without the spaces on either side of the colon) on the iphone but it didn't work. I'm thinking that there's no way to change the IMAP port from 143 w/ the iphone. :(
