I have had an @Ovi.com EMail address for many years.
Now with NokiaMail powered by Yahoo and the recent notification about linking Mail and Contacts I decided that it was a good time to tidy things up.
It would appear that Nokia has reserved an @Nokiamail.com address with the same identifier as your @Ovi.com address for those of us that are already signed up.
I have signed into my EMail account, and this forum using the EMail address email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org, using the same password. It worked just fine.
But I can't set the address up on my iMac or my Nokia N9 and (unlike iCloud) messages sent to email@example.com don't end up in the inbox of firstname.lastname@example.org. I came accross this problem when I tried to add my @nokiamail.com account to my Ovi Account to make it my primary EMail. The verification EMail has gone somewhere and I can't find it - and I can't set up any of my devices with an @nokiamail account.
Can anybody help out please??

Moderator's note: We have removed your e-mail address as it is unwise to publish personal information in a public forum.
We'd like to help you with your concern. Please provide more details about the issue so the community can easily assist you.
1. What's the model of your device? What was the last thing that you're doing with it before the issue started?
2. What exactly happens when you try to access your email? Do you get any error message? If yes, please indicate it.
3. Are you referring to the mail application or to your account? If it's the account, please check if you access it using a PC.
Note that a stable internet connection is required to be able to access your email. We recommend using WiFi connection if the phone supports it. To test the connection, you may try to visit some websites using the mobile browser.
A simple reboot sometimes helps. If the phone's battery is removable, try removing and reinserting it to restart the phone. After that, try to access your email and see if it will improve.
Hope to hear feedback from you soon.
