e5 how to use WiFi to set up email?

Hello everybody. I just purchased e5 and I am having trouble with setting up gmail over WiFi. The phone keeps trying to use cellular data to set it up, but I do not subscribe to the service. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm having the same problem too with my e5. Nokia, some help please? Not everyone has a data plan with their service provider for goodness sake.

I have found a solution. I have downloaded fan app called Smartconnect. I went to their website, downloaded the zip file then installed it on the phone. Then I defined a group to connect to the wifi. It worked like a charm and I was able to set up my email. Here is the link to their web site http://www.secgo.com/Products/Birdstep/SmartConnect/

@ahuja,

 

The standard Nokia e-mail client tries to use the Nokia Messaging by default. With Nokia Messaging you get push e-mails, but it requires a non-WLAN connection for setting up the service, as the Nokia Messaging service is bound to your phone, and in some cases controlled by the mobile carrier.

 

If you don't want to use Nokia Messaging you can try putting your phone in offline mode and then configuring the e-mail account. Hopefully it will work.

Re: e5 how to use WiFi to set up email?

Hello everyone,

 

i've had  a major problem with my mailbox on my nokia E5.

Once i set it up few months ago it worked ok untill i realized it only stays connected when i am at home using the wifi. when i conncet at a friends house (to a network that is already in my destinations) it doesn't connect even when i press the connect button in the menu. 

I deleted it hoping that once i reinstall it it would be fine, but now it doesnt allow me to do so at all. I chose the hotmail option and i get an error message saying 'cannot connect to server. try again later' i assume this means it is a wifi problem that has to do with the settings ive put. i have been reading this forum for a few days and nothing works, i would appreciate your help!!

 

thank u in advance:smileyhappy:

The key is to go to Account Settings and choose the access point you want to use.
