Another 808 question...
Is Exchange really the only mail option? I've been able to sync my Gmail account and grab all my contacts (which is awesome, btw). But then I try to create another mailbox. I just want to set up my corporate email (a regular IMAP account), but I see "Exchange ActiveSync" is the only option. Nothing about other providers or anything else like on other Nseries phones. I choose it anyway thinking it will bypass it, but it simply says: "Maximum number of mailboxes chosen...please delete existing mailbox".
Do I really need to purchase a 3rd party app just to get a second mailbox? What am I missing here?

Thanks for your feedback and welcome to the forum.
When you have a SIM inserted you should see all mailbox options when you go to MENU>Mail>New mailbox
Besides Exchange Active Sync you should see several preset options depending on your region and the 'other' options which allows for a manual install.
If you do not see these options I would suggest you soft reset the Nokia 808, this will reset default settings and not remove any personal data. Dial *#7780# followed by the (optional) security code 12345 and check again after the reset finishes.
If this does not resolve this you may try a hard reset which will remove all personal data from the phone's internal memory, so make a backup in Nokia Suite first (Tools/Backup). Then dial *#7370# again if asked followed by the security code 12345.
If after this reset you still do not see the additional options please visit a Nokia Care Point for further assistance.
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

I'm having the same problem with my new 808. My question is whether Exchange ActiveSync is the ONLY
mail option for WLAN connections? (That is when you don't use a simcard for a mobile network?)
Wifi works perfectly, and I have done the FP2 update plus the WLAN update (current version 113.010.1506.222.01).
However, when I try to add a mailbox, Exchange ActiveSync is the only option available. Does this mean that
if I want to use email without that capability (even just the send part for sending my images), I need to get a third-party email client (if I want to use it over wifi)?
Thanks in advance for any information on this issue!
