Having upgraded my phone to the Nokia 5800 and brought myself into 2009 with mobile internet, I've got a question on mobile email........you'll have to forgive me, I'm a bit of a techno thicky.

I have my private email addy which is with BT and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to use that with the mobile. But, I've also got a work email - "[email protected]" type of thing.

Could I set that up to access it on the mobile but make sure that any email I get or send is also copied to Outlook on the laptop? [:cool:]

TIA.

Dave.

The answer IN THEORY (subject to your new phone supporting it) is yes.

If you set up a POP3 (or just POP) account, which downloads your email, and if your company provide it that's fine. The IMPORTANT BIT though - is there needs to be a tick box for you to say "Leave a copy of the messages on the server".

By default, when you download emial, your client will delete each message it successfully downloads. If your phone supports the above option, you can download it on the phone and still find it there for your laptop.

Be warned, if you download it first on the laptop, it won't get to your mobile - unless you tick the box on both laptop + phone. If you do that, they don't ever get deleted (so you'll run out of space).

Howsat?

That's excellent. [Y]

I'm not bothered about not getting all mail on the mobile if I've read it on the laptop. The most important thing is getting a copy on the laptop if it's read on the mobile first.

Just to be sure it'll work, on Outlook the work account is set up as SMPT and POP3, which means nothing to me but might mean something to you! [:D]

SMTP == Outgoing

POP3 == Incoming

RE the mobile setup, that tick box needs to be set (if it's available) under your POP3 settings. If it's not there, you'll likely be only to download once onto the mobile and it'll never reach the lappy.

Not really had a chance to fully test it out or set it up. I'll be trying to get that done today.

I've managed to set up the private email addy and I'm getting a copy on my laptop too so that's all good.

Just need to set up the business account now and "tinker".

A quick question though:

My email addy is via BT Internet. On the phone it's set up as "mail.btinternet.com" for the incoming mail server. However, on the outgoing mail server, it's showing as send.vodafone.net - shouldn't that be mail.btinternet.com too?

EDIT - frustrating......my private emails are getting through ok but my work ones arent. [:(] [8-|]

EDIT No.2 - It's working now. Not quite sure what I've done, but it's working - sending and receiving...... 2009 baybeeeee. [clap]
