Setting up your .mac email on your S60 phone...

A common question I get asked is "how do I set up my phone to receive .mac email?"

So here's a step by step. It's extremely simple, really. Demonstration is done on a
Nokia E90. But it'll be the same for any S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 phone.

I use POP3 for my account so this will be a POP3 setup process. POP3 here behaves like IMAP. Only the email headers are downloaded and not the content. When you click the particular email to open it, the phone then downloads the content. And I can still access the same downloaded emails that have been downloaded to my phone from any computer anywhere, any time. This is the way I set up my mail server behaviour:

So here goes:

1) Go to your messaging menu. If you have not setup your email yet, the email inbox is named "Mailbox" by default.

2) Click on "Mailbox" and it'll ask you if you want to setup your email mailbox.

3) Mailbox setup wizard is launched.

4) Choose POP3.

5) Enter your email address

6) Incoming mail server is: mail.mac.com

7) Outgoing mail server is: smtp.mac.com

8) Choose how you want to connect to retrieve your mail. I choose always ask so that I can use wifi as much as possible.

9) Name your mailbox anything you want.

10) Click OK and you're almost there.

11) Go back to your messaging menu and open your newly setup mailbox with the new name.

12) The phone will ask you if you want to connect to your email server to retrieve your mail.

13) Choose yes and it will prompt you to enter your username and password.

14) Choose connect on the next menu.

15) Choose your access point.

16) And WALA! The last 30 email headers will be downloaded to your phone.

17) Click on the email you want to read, and it will ask you if you want to download its contents.

18) Downloading.

19) And you can now receive your .mac email.

20) Now you need to complete the setup so you can send emails too. Go you your messaging menu and go to options > settings

21) Select email settings.

22) Select your mailbox.

23) Select connection settings.

24) Select outgoing email settings

25) Fill in your username and password in the blank boxes.

Now you can send emails with your phone's messaging application with your .mac account.

If you have your email server settings the same as mine, whatever email you have retrieved on your phone will still be retrievable on any computer, any where. They will just be marked as read, but you won't lose them.

Easy as pie.
