Nokia E72 - Set up Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo accoun...

Nokia E72 - Set up Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo accounts impossible!!!!

I bought my E72 3 days ago and the first impression i got was disappointing.

 

The first action you do when switching on E72 for the first time is to set up your email accounts.

Remember, E72 is Nokia's top email phone!!!

 

I chose hotmail. I enter my email account and then my password as requested.

And the next screen i get is nothing but the previous one!!!

 

The same happens with Yahoo accounts.

 

I found a way to work around the crash and set up my account through the "other" tab available on the wizard.

 

I am really disappointed that i have changed my beloved E71, to get an even more proffessional solution that in the end needs a total update to set up our emails.


There must be a solution in the next software upgrade and must be installed for free in all Nokia's stores.

I find this issue totally unacceptable, as you said, the E72 is supposed to be a TOP e-mail phone. If Nokia don't do something quick about this issue, I'm switching to Blackberry, at least their phones work properly. Not to mention the slow operation and constant freezing. I appreciate the phone for all the services it provides, but they need to MAKE IT WORK.

Re: Nokia E72 - Set up Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo accounts impossible!!!!

Apparently there's a conflict between Vodafone live! SIMs and the 031.023 software. Nokia support called me to tell me this... I have to say, I'm impressed. They said he solution is as follows: get a SIM from a different operator, set-up the mailboxes using a random acces point provided by the other SIM and switch back to Vodafone. After the switch, be sure to go to Account settings to manually modify the acces point in use to Vodafone live!
Apparently the bug exists because the new software attempts to automatically retrieve the acces points from the network, you no longer have to receive a settings message, and something's not working there :smileytongue:
Hope it works for you guys, I didn't get the chance to try it out yet, going out to get a SIM now.

Hi,

 

I have the same issue and indeed it is very annoying and disappointing.

 

I just both my E72 2 days ago.

Luckily for Nokia I didn't read the forums before I purchased it.

I don't know if I would have bought it after reading al these issues.

 

I really hope that they will solve all these issues in the next firmware releases?

This workaround seems too far-fetched

Similar problem with yahoo - worked fine for first 2 weeks, no problems with initial set up, then stopped sending emails.  Tried reinstalling but email setup just stalls after entering password.  Very disappointing for flagship nokia.

Re: Nokia E72 - Set up Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo accounts impossible!!!!

I bought E72 3 months back! And tell u guys, its Awesome! I have not faced any problems in configuring my MFE, my gmail ( have configured 2 gmails) and my hotmail. Mails come in and go out properly. No hang issues. Mails Sync properly with server. Also, MFE calendar syncs fine with my phone's calendar. My official meetings shows up properly.

The best part is MS Office Communicator - which I use to connect to my office chat.

I'm using the Nokia Chat which has yahoo msngr, gtalk, windows and ovi chats.

Also, using Nibuzz for FB chat! :smileyhappy:

I just love E72.

oh boy i faced similer difficulty when i first bought E72 but then i found easiest solution. Nokia made it so easy just go to www.email.nokia.com and then give ur mobile no and choose model no. then choose any email id and then u will receive message from nokia. Rest is very easy. u can set up upto 10 email id and access all simultinously.

[ Edited ]

Since a few days I can't send or receive my hotmail on my E72 phone. When pressing 'Z' for sending and receiving it connects and disconnects immediately I have tried connecting via wifi and 3G, nothing works. Please advise...

Re: Nokia E72 - Set up Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo accounts impossible!!!!

Hi!

 

I have an E63 (similar to E72) and it hasn't been syncing email on any of my 3 email accounts since 22nd August.

 

Is there a server problem? Seems odd that all three of my email accounts would stop syncing at the same time.  It was working fine up until then.

 

Many thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Re: Nokia E72 - Set up Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo accounts impossible!!!!

liesbman and NeeCee, yes there was outage. Is your issue solved, now? If not, please, let us continue there …

 

By the way, if do you really want Nokia Messaging? If you enter a email address like user@example.com, you are able to access the native (direct, without proxy) email client.

Re: Nokia E72 - Set up Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo accounts impossible!!!!

Yes, thanks - it started syching again yesterday and seems to be working fine.

 

The reason I use Nokia Messaging is because way back when I got the phone, I couldn't get it to pick up emails using the standard set up.  When I contacted someone at Nokia to ask for help, I was instructed to download the messaging software from the Ovi store and use that - been using it ever since.

 

Thanks again for your help!

NeeCee
