This is an IMAP account.

It is now declaring 'Problem with sync' so that does suggest a typo
somewhere but I have checked and rechecked all the account information.
I'm tempted to take a look at the accounts.db file to see what that

I'm having difficulty getting into 'su' mode at the moment as I don't
recall setting a password. So when I've sorted that out, I'll run the
journal command as well to see what it throws up.

Thanks for your help.

As an aside, having switched the device off just now but with the USB
lead from my PC still plugged in, it displayed the battery information
on screen. I like that and prefer it to the N900 style of just blinking
the LED.
