E51 Gmail and Yahoo mail box access

Dear All

I was trying to configure the gmail and yahoo mail accounts in the new E51 which I have bought. I have correctly configured the mail setup with the correct username and password. But I am getting an error "Invalid Mail for exchange credentials. Check credential settings". The pop up is coming repeatedly on the phone even if am not using the same.

Please help me out for the same.

Thanks in advance.
Regards
Joseph

Re: E51 Gmail and Yahoo mail box access

Are you trying to use Mail for exchange with gmail? I don't think that's possible. Just a thought.

The same is there as an option in the messaging menu.

Yep ... you need to use the 'native' email client not Mail for Exchange.

Re: E51 Gmail and Yahoo mail box access

Hi Guys!
I'm sure by now your problems are solved. Nevertheless, let me simplify this for you. I have both my Gmail and my Yahoo mail setup on my E51 and they work beautifully. One thing you should be aware of is that while Gmail offers mobile & POP access free, you need to upgrade to a business account in yahoo to avail the same. That being said, here are the settings for each:

For Gmail:

Connection Settings > Incoming E-Mail
User name: Enter your complete Gmail e-mail address including '@gmail.com'
Password: Enter your Password
Incoming Mail Server: imap.gmail.com
Access Point in Use: Select the active data connection
Mailbox Name: Whatever you like
Mailbox Type: IMAP4
Security (ports): SSL/TLS
Port: Default

Connection Settings > Outgoing E-Mail
My e-mail address: Enter your complete Gmail e-mail address including '@gmail.com'
User name: Again enter your complete Gmail e-mail address including '@gmail.com'
Password: Enter your password
Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.gmail.com
Access Point in Use: Select the active data connection
Security (ports): StartTLS
Port: 587

User Settings:
My Name: Whatever name you'd like to appear in your sent emails
Send Message: Choose 'Immediately' if you would like your phone to connect to the internet and send the message everytime you send an e-mail. Otherwise choose 'during next connection'
Send copy to self: Choose yes if you would like a copy of all mails that you send using your mobile, to be sent to your inbox too.Otherwise choose No.
Include Signature: Your choice. If you choose yes, enter the signature text
New E-Mail alerts: On
Reply to: If you would like people to reply to a different e-mail id then the current one, enter that.Else choose Off.
Delete E-mails From: Select Phone or Server. If you select phone, th emails get deleted only from the phone, although the header still remains till the next time you refresh. What this means is that mails deleted from you phone will continue to remain on your server and will be accessible the next time you access your mail using a PC.

Retrieval Settings:
E-Mail to retrieve: No choice here. Gmail only allows you to retrieve headers first. If you feel a mail is important you can select it and download the entire message later.
Retrieval Amount: Set how many e-mails you would like downloaded
IMAP4 folder path: This is set to 'Unix path' by default. Let it be
Folder Subscriptions: No changes required here

Automatic Retrieval: Select E-mail retrieval and set it to 'Enabled'.
Retrieval Days: All Days
Retrieval Hours: All Hours
Retrieval Interval:smileyfrustrated:et it to 5 mins if you would like e-mails to get downloaded to your phone almost as soon as they arrive (Like Push E-Mail). Else select a time interval as desired.



Yahoo: (Provided you are subscribed to premium business mail)

Connection Settings > Incoming E-Mail
User name: Enter your yahoo user name only (without '@yahoo.com)
Password: Enter your Password
Incoming Mail Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
Access Point in Use: Select the active data connection
Mailbox Name: Whatever you like
Mailbox Type: POP3
Security (ports): SSL/TLS
Port: Default
APOP secure login: Off

Connection Settings > Outgoing E-Mail
My e-mail address: Enter your complete yahoo e-mail address including '@yahoo.com'
User name: Enter your yahoo user name only (without '@yahoo.com)
Password: Enter your password
Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Access Point in Use: Select the active data connection
Security (ports): SSL/TLS
Port: Default

User Settings:
My Name: Whatever name you'd like to appear in your sent emails
Send Message: Choose 'Immediately' if you would like your phone to connect to the internet and send the message everytime you send an e-mail. Otherwise choose 'during next connection'
Send copy to self: Choose yes if you would like a copy of all mails that you send using your mobile, to be sent to your inbox too.Otherwise choose No.
Include Signature: Your choice. If you choose yes, enter the signature text
New E-Mail alerts: On
Reply to: If you would like people to reply to a different e-mail id then the current one, enter that.Else choose Off.
Delete E-mails From: Select Phone or Server. If you select phone, th emails get deleted only from the phone, although the header still remains till the next time you refresh. What this means is that mails deleted from you phone will continue to remain on your server and will be accessible the next time you access your mail using a PC.

Retrieval Settings:
E-Mail to retrieve: Select 'Headers' only to retrieve headers first. If you feel a mail is important you can select it and download the entire message later. Select 'Size Limit' to set a limit to the size of e-mails that can be downloaded. Select 'Msgs. & Attchs' if you want everything to be downloaded.
Retrieval Amount: All

Automatic Retrieval: Select E-mail retrieval and set it to 'Enabled'.
Retrieval Days: All Days
Retrieval Hours: All Hours
Retrieval Interval: Select a time interval as desired.

With this done you should have no poblems accessing both, your yahoo mail and gmail on your E51 over a Wi-Fi connection or a data plan from your service provider.

Re: E51 Gmail and Yahoo mail box access

Also, there seems to be a bug in the software. If your user name has special chars in it (for e.g. one of my user names has a period in it), then that username is not recognized. I've raised a mail to Nokia CC and am awaiting a reply from their end.

Re: E51 Gmail and Yahoo mail box access

I access gmail and Yahoo through pop3.I'm sorry I don't have an answer but my phone does the opposite. Delete phone only does nothing, delete phone and server removes the header from the phone but not the server. Also when i read emails on my phone they disappear from the phone inbox even if I don't delete them.One thing you can do is access both accounts through webmail applications.

For gmail type http;//gmail.com/app into your phone browser. This application allows you to open, delete and move gmail messages from both your phone and server.

Yahoo has a similar application - Yahoo Go! you can go to the Yahoo website on your PC and get a link sent to your phone and download the application. Like the gmail app it allows you to delete, mark as spam and move mail to folders

Re: E51 Gmail and Yahoo mail box access

Hi

My GMAIL in my Nokia E51 can only be retrieved every 30min, 60 min, and more.  There is no option for more frequent retrieval such as every 5 min.  In this discussion some said it can be set to 5min.  I don't have that option.

 

I have today upgraded the E51's software but still no option.

 

Please advise.
