Nokia Offers Native Push Email With New Service

by Darla Mack

Nokia Mail ScreenThrough a kind invitation from Nokia I've been able to test out a new service called Nokia Email.  Nokia Email is an application that offers native push emails to your device.  Think Mail for Exchange for us non-corporate folks!

Finally, a native push email solution from Nokia.  Current email types supported are POP and IMAP.  MSN Hotmail and Corporate Mail is not yet supported.

Current supported devices include:  Nokia E51, E61, E61i, E65, E66, E71, E90, N73, N80, N81 8GB and N95. I've successfully installed it on the N95-3, N95-4 with no problems, but it didn't work on the N78 so don't try it.

To begin you must register on the site.  You will receive the application via download link to your mobile.  Installation is very simple and the application can be installed on more than one Nokia. Once the application is installed the set-up automatically begins. Since the application isn't available to all devices yet I installed it on my N95-4.

Setting up the sync schedule is easy as well and of course since we want push we want it on at all times!  Remember though that data charges will apply if roaming.

One of the great features of composting mail is the easy integration of the address book. Now to protect the privacy of my contacts I refrained from sharing that screenshot, but when you compose a new email all you have to do is press the center key from your device and all of your contacts appear in a scrollable list. Unlike having to switch screens to select a contact.s the easy integration of the address book.

The inbox speaks for itself.  The application also gives an option to create local folders which are stored on the device, but not synced with Gmail in this case.  Since I used my Gmail account for this I appreciate the more detailed inbox for my emails.  While Gmail is a great app this offers me alot more details.  Although with Gmail you have a threaded conversation for a topic (in this case my Google alerts for T-Mobile) sometimes you miss out on mails because they are compiled into a thread instead of individual emails.  This of course is a personal preference.

Many great features are included in this application and so far I'm looking forward to final release.  Some of you may ask "what makes this different from the built in mail client" or "does this put an inbox list on my standby screen".  Those are good questions!! Hopefully soon I will have some more details and possibly some answers as beta progresses, so stay tuned and check the FAQ's.  In the meantime, feel free to post any questions you may have in the comment section or leave feedback on the Nokia Email site.

I am using it on my E71 for past 4 days. works like a dream. actually is a blessing for the E71 as dont have exchange and the E71 doesn't support Blackberry. I have 2 grouses at the moment :

1)Sent items do not show up in the sent folder (sent mail to Nokia and they say its a bug and getting fixed). althought mails are getting sent
2)Push mail, well takes some time

other things work like a peach, contact integration, date-wise segregation of inbox msgs, attachments - sending and receiving.I see serious competition for blackberry here, but Nokia must keep up the enthusiasm for the development.also being a Nokia addict I think this software integrates well with a Nokia phone unlike blackberry connect.

I've been using this on my n82 (selected the n81) and it works brilliantly. except for the fact that it sends messages with a different server time (im from the future!!). but the same problem is there on my e66, which is supported.

I'm also using this on my E71. Works great aside from the missing sent items. If I had to use my email for business this bug would be a deal killer.

I have the Nokia E51 and it worrks, but as several aallready written. It is slow. It sounds for new messages and the light flashes. But I also use the Gizmo, it seems eating up my battery, need to recharge all the time. I don't mind if Nokia would release thicker batterys for Nokia E51, E71 like 1500 or 2000mAh since I need to recharge my Nokia E51 very often. Thicker battery and also a new back cover that would fit with the thicker batterypack.
Like back in the days they did Xpress-on covers
for many cellulars.
