Hi,

I have this (non-rooted) company android phone with Exchange Activesync. I want to copy the account to my private phone but can't see the password. Is there a way to capture this data while on my private WiFI network when syncing so that I can sniff the password?

Thanks! Mike

You can't sniff the password (for good reasons), as the communication is encrypted to prevent the disclosure of things like the password and any of the synched data ;-)

but can't see the password

Hm... You don't know the password for your company e-mail account? How do you read your mail while you are in the office? Are you sure this is your phone?

Regards
Kurt
