How To Setup Email on Nokia X6

How To Setup Email on Nokia X6 The Nokia X6 has a 3.2-inch touchscreen with capacitive technology, which is perfect for tapping out messages and emails and never missing a beat. So, how do you go about setting up your email on your brand new Nokia X6? Find out how to setup email on your Nokia X6 with our easy guide…

The beauty of email on the move, such as Ovi Mail, Google Mail, Hotmail or Yahoo, means you don’t need to be tied to your PC to send and receive messages. The Nokia X6 comes with a simple email wizard to help you get started.

Step One: First of all though, you’ll need to log into your email account, go to settings, and ensure that IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is enabled. This is the technology that lets you download messages elsewhere – such as straight to your Nokia X6. You’ll also be able to access emails using POP (Post Office Protocol), but we’ll explain more about that later.

Step Two: To set up an email account, go to the menu, click on Messages, and Mailbox: Create New. This brings up the email wizard, which is installed by default on the Nokia X6. You’ll be asked to enter your email address, followed by the password for your email account. It’s case-sensitive – just like when you’re logging on using an internet browser. Press next, and the Nokia X6 will then fetch all the correct settings for you.

Step Three: Once you’ve installed your account on the Nokia X6, you’ll be given the option to sign up to Nokia’s Messaging Service, or to create a separate account that uses manual delivery. If you want to receive emails instantly, then sign up to Nokia’s Messaging service. This may not be covered by your data plan, however, and subscription is currently only offered as a trial option.

Step Four: Click the latter option if you’d prefer your email account to appear as another folder under Messaging. It’s easy to change download schedules – where you’ll be able to download emails manually – which is better if you don’t have an unlimited data plan. To change the download schedule, open your account, and click Options. Then press Email Settings, followed by Automatic Retrieval. This lets you either download your emails manually, or have them delivered to you on a timed schedule.

    \"Press next, and the Nokia X6 will then fetch all the correct settings for you.\" — Umm, well, no, it doesn\’t actually. Not always. It \"fetched\" some completely wrong settings for my pipex email account, and then didn\’t let me change them afterwards. Result: No email on my phone.

    I would really like some help setting up POP and SMTP access for my mailbox, as this seems locked down and unchangeable.

    Could we have an article on how to copy dvd movies to the n97, 9preferably keeping the audio in sync with the picture!) Unless you are a complete phone/video geek, this appears incredibly hard to do but the n97 appears to be made for it.
