my question is at the bottom:
If you have the E63 (like bought it new or are re setting an email) and are tempted to use Nokia Messaging to get more 'reliable' email delivery
don't do it.
Seems that things have changed and Nokia is still trying to show us that it makes **bleep** software.
So I went through the usual story of installation where I allow it to connect to the internet (actually easier on the E63 than the E72 which has these funny connection preference classes and rankings). It then asked me to allow it to install Messaging 9 ... well that was a bit of a shock.
So I thought about it and then enventually decided "ok, how bad can it be?"
Well it essentially installs an independent EMAIL client (which makes the E63 work sort of like the E72 does only worse).
Yes worse, because now it splits email boxes into:
At least on the E72 these are integrated into a single view of all in the messaging side.
So its the worst of both worlds.
I can report that it displays (badly) the mail in HTML, which is precisely WHY I DID NOT WANT TO STAY WITH THE E72. I *like* that it displays the email as the text (its faster and easier to read for a start) and allows me to see HTML if I wish (and 70% of the time I don't give a rats about the HTML formatting of the emails) and allows me to manage images and attachments much easier.
If you want to control the way that your phone gets at data then the old E63 Messaging (and I understood E71 messaging) is better.
If you just don't care then the E72 messaging can help you maximise your data useage and still provide an annoying interface to wrestle with. I like many aspects of it (pressing R to reply for instance) but on the balance the complete failure of integration with my Gallery to attach images and documents is pathetic.
Now that I have installed this, even though I have deleted the account and tried to turn it off, the phone now connects to 3G data at the times my old settings were set to do so. This has persisted to the next day. Sometimes when I have altered the settings on my Nokia Messaging settings it has taken 24 hours to filter through to the way the phone operates.
Ohh ... and now I can't uninstall it. Seems that the uninstall process starts and then just at the end fails with "installation corrupt"
So Nokia has managed to break what worked nicely on the E63
Solved! Go to Solution.
