Thank you for your post and welcome to the forums!
I added my Nokia Mail account by going to Settings > email + accounts, add new account and selected Nokia Mail, input my email address (in the form of firstname.lastname@example.org) and password and it connected me to the service without problems.
The automatically fetched server settings are as follows:
Incoming email server: imap.mail.ovi.com:883:1
Outgoing email server: smtp.mail.ovi.com:465:1
Tick both "Outgoing server requires authentication" and "Use the same username and password for sending email".
Let us know if this helps,

i've follow the procedures, but the email app just prompts me to re-enter the user id & pwd.
However, when I add the account by selecting "others", and enter the @ovi.com id&pwd, the auto generated settings works well (although the imap and smtp addresses are still the same as those of nokia mail)
In some cases you need to select "other" from the list, this may happen with email accounts such as @googlemail.com, which is basically the same as Gmail but may require different settings (and keep on asking for your credentials). So, if the default "Nokia Mail" does not work, there is no harm in using the "other" choice.
Good to hear that you got it working!
I have exactly the same issue with my WP7.8 Lumia 800:
- Re-installed the Nokia (OVI powered by Yahoo!) mail client
- Still keeps on prompting for pwd & id
- Even if submitting the above many times still replys stay in the outbox
- Power cycles etc. do not really help
Next is now to try this "other" option. I hope that will help, I will let you know.
