I am not knowledgable enough about proxy servers to experiment yet, but is it not possible to use a proxy to change the ports google IMAP operates on? Across all the discussion boards, everyone is pointing to a port conflict as the cause for blank HTML messages, so does it not reason that switching to a different port may reveal those message bodies? This seems way too obvious to be the simple solution, but I just don't know enough about proxys to know if it would work or not. Does anyone know if this could be a viable solution, or if not, why?
