How to configure Nokia S60 device to access an existing Ovi Mail account

How do I configure my S60 device to access an existing Ovi Mail account?

If you do not have an Ovi Mail account yet, you can first go to http://mail.ovi.com on a computer to create an Ovi Mail account. Then you can configure your S60 device to access your Ovi Mail account by following the instructions below:

  • Select “Communications” from Menu on your S60 device
  • Select Messaging -> Options -> Settings -> Email
  • Select Options -> New mailbox
  • Enter your complete email address (such as username@ovi.com) and password to connect to your Ovi Mail account

If you are using a N-series device such as N95 or N96, the above steps may not work. In that case use the following manual steps:

  • Select “Communications” from Menu
  • Select Messaging -> Options -> Settings -> Email
  • Select Options -> New mailbox
  • Enter your complete email address (such as username@ovi.com) and password
  • If you see the message “Email Provider not on the list – search”, click “OK”
  • Select “IMAP”
  • Incoming Mail Server: imap.mail.ovi.com (secure/SSL port 993)
  • Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.mail.ovi.com (secure/SSL port 465)
  • Username and password is your name@ovi.com and password.
  • Define Access Point (Pick your local Operator)
  • Define Mailbox Name as Ovi
  • Select Messaging -> Ovi -> Options -> Connect
  • It may ask for your email address and password one more time and after that you are ready to start using Ovi Mail

    Connect your Nokia device to your computer to synchronise your contacts, photos, music and more.

    There are 2 ways to connect your Nokia device to your computer when you access Nokia Ovi Suite: USB or Bluetooth.

    Connecting with a USB cable
    Connecting with Bluetooth

    Connecting with a USB cable
    A USB cable connection is the fastest way to transfer large amounts of data (such as voice guidance files for Maps) between your Nokia device and your computer.

    Your Nokia device is supplied with a USB cable. If you don’t have a USB connection cable for your device, you can find the right cable in the Nokia store.

    When you connect the cable and switch on your device, your device asks you which mode you want to use. To synchronise with Nokia Ovi Suite, choose PC Suite.

    Connecting with Bluetooth
    With a Bluetooth connection you can connect without cables: you can also pair your device and your computer so that they connect whenever they’re in range. To connect wirelessly using Bluetooth:

    * Both your computer and your Nokia device need to be Bluetooth-capable. Find Bluetooth-capable devices
    * Check your computer’s Bluetooth settings to make sure Bluetooth is turned on and your computer is discoverable
    * Make sure your device has Bluetooth turned on and that it is visible to other Bluetooth devices
    * Use your computer to browse for Bluetooth devices and select your device.
    * Enter a passcode when prompted to pair your device and your computer.
    * Use your device to accept any connection requests from your computer

    Now your device and computer are connected, you’re ready to install Nokia Ovi Suite and start synchronising information.

    Get started with Nokia Ovi Suite by setting up your first synchronisation.

    When you’ve downloaded Nokia Ovi Suite from the web or launched the installation program from the DVD that came with your device, you’re ready to sync for the first time.

    1. Connect your Nokia device to your computer using a USB cable or Bluetooth. (Find out how to connect your device to your computer.)
    2. Choose a name for your device.
    3. If you want to use Ovi online services, sign in to your Nokia account or register for a new account. If you prefer, you can skip this step and return to it later.
    4. Choose what you want to synchronise from your Nokia device: contacts, photos, messages and music. You can change these options later.
    5. Select Finish to complete setup.

    When the initial synchronisation finishes, Nokia Ovi Suite 2.0 is installed on your computer

    You can start Nokia Ovi Suite at any time from the icon on your Windows desktop.

    If you already have an older version of Nokia Ovi Suite or Nseries Suite installed, it will automatically be uninstalled when you install Nokia Ovi Suite.

    Nokia PC Suite and Nokia Ovi Suite can be installed on the same computer, but you should not use them at the same time.
