I am using the new Nokia E6 in The Netherlands. I discovered that the notification light is hardly to be seen, but this is already being discussed in another topic.
But next to this, when receiving a new message on Gmail or my Imap email. The notification light doesn't pop up at all. Also I do not see any notification on the notification bar on the left bottom, where you can see missed calls and messages. So this means I have to use the email widget and have to light my screen on to see the unread email messages.
Can this please be fixed. I am really frustrated about this issues. This is the reason Why I bought this phone after my Nokia E72, but a touchscreen nor Symbian Anna cannot make up for this.
Last but not least I noticed that the notification does not work when receiving a WhatsApp message. This worked just fine on my Nokia E71 and E72. I do know this is an issue for WhatsApp, but I guess Nokia should work together with them to fix this. If whatsapp didn't work on the Nokia. Never in my life I would buy a Nokia, eventhough the quality of the phones is perfect.
Agreed, I'm also coming from the E72 and am rather disappointed by the E6 not notifying me by blinking light when an email arrives (like the E72 did!).
So1stly the notification light is too dim to be seen (as stated elsewhere) and 2ndly the E6 doesn't allow notification to be set for emails, only for missed calls and messages.
Why is it that Nokia always runs into such RIDICULOUS shortcomings with their otherwise great phones? I think that this is the main reason for their current economical issues, rather than alleged Symbian flaws.
we will try our best to fix the notification light for E6 in the next release of WhatsApp. please check http://www.whatsapp.com/nokia/ for a new version in a couple of weeks.
The lack of email notification is not just an e6 issue; it is a Symbian 3 one. None of the Symbian 3 handsets can receive visual email notification without the widget. Ridiculous and amateurish.

Oh, there certainly is I-will-fix-all-of-symbian-problems update..
It is called "Forget about Nokia, buy Android phone"
I am thniking about such "upgrade" of my phone more often recently. Personal and bad experience with Nokia's latest products gives me no choice. Especially when I have to wait for symbian Anna for my N8 since.. . Frankly, I can't remeber since when, it is so anoyingly long right now. Then, I've bought E6 just because I was in love in E71 and I couldn't stand N8 no more. And guess what did happen?
Once again Nokia device has its own issues which are killing user experience. So, in 2011 I spent ~900 euros on two brand new Nokia phones. I consider this "investment" as the worst in my entire life. I am disapointed after years of having and recommending Nokia phones, now is the time to quit.
I am sorry for my cries. It has just come out from me after reading recent posts.
there will be no answer to your question I'm afraid
if anyone form Nokia reads that please check below carefully
2 major things these days for succesfull business to survive
no1 is CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
no 2 CSR (corporate social responsibility)
you do have graet CSR (smaller boxes made of recycleble paper, no manuals etc) but you have forgotten about your customers, it works both ways for u unforunately - customers will forget about you
i just shifted from an e5 to e6 expecting much more than e5 for a phone that is double the price, but iits really DISAPPOINTING!! i'm not sure if u can call this a SMART PHONE if it does not have an email notification.
and i can not believe this issue is still un fixed.EVEN IN THE NOKIA BELLE REFRESH UPDATE!!
The notification light not lighting up in e-mails is quite an irritation.
When I receive whatsapp messages, I noticed that my right side volume keys light up! Nokia, can't you make this happen for all other notifications as well? If Whatsapp can do it, surely you can!
Running symbian Anna.

I am choosing my handsets wisely, reading a lot of reviews and user experiences before buying one in order to find the one that just fits my need perfectly. In a handset I use everyday I look for good build quality, software stability, good battery time, and a few important apps (Email, Maps, Whatsapp). You serve 95% of this wishes perfectly and I loved my phones. I even came back to you after a short liaison with Android that didn't went brilliantly.
So, what have I done to you that you make me feel so stupid having done the investment in a Nokia handset? Glitches and small problems are not limited to Nokia, but we are stumbling across the most annoying small problems on an otherwise good phones, and you never seem to to care about them! All it would take is this little extra commitment after releasing a handset to make in perfect. My Nokia C5-00 was a perfect phone and it lasted days without charging, until it started dropping to 0 overnight frequently, all you did was reinstalling the FW and it never got the problem solved. My Nokia E72 was probably the best of them all, unfortunately it started to show its age, nothing wrong with that. The obvious update for a E72 enthusiast was the E6-00. But what where you thinking when you released a high end E series handset with a broken notification light and no notification for E-Mail?
I got the new keymat to solve the notification light problem. Please help me feel less of an idiot by doing me the favor and getting E-Mail notification for the E6-00 to work.
an unappreciated customer
P.S.: On the side, please stop ditching good and valid operating systems
It is too bad that Nokia are thanking their loyal Symbian customers by swifly stabbing them in the back with a jagged and rusty sword. It seems that their agreement with Microsoft includes abandoning all other OS development. Basically, there will be no further updates to Symbian phones. However, this is a total cop-out, as these issues were known long before this arrangement had been made and Nokia chose to ignore them.
