Setting Up Email in Nokia N95 8GB

I believe that email is one of communication components that can not be separated from some peoples life. Some persons (including me of course!) think that it seems will be no sunny day without checking an email account. Every day in the morning at the office, I never forget to check it whether only just retrieving or sending something. This will happened too if I were in the middle at weekend on some place or in a time that I must sending someone a file by email. For this necessity, I always counting on mobile phone through GPRS connection (since I don’t have any line to make a dial up, especially in my house).

For me, it’s still a wise idea selecting an email with POP enabled if you are a “price sensitive” type, because it will cost less money compared to login via web based email client (I notice again: if you decide to use your own money to have internet connection). If you has a mobile phone or similar gadget which have email messaging feature, you can utilize it. Article described below will giving you instructions how to setting up email (GMail: Google Mail) on Nokia N95 8GB step by step. I’ll assumed that your GPRS connection is up, having an active GMail account & already enabling POP activation option from Setting menu over GMail web application.

First of all, enter messaging menu from your N95, pick on Options menu & go to e-mail settings.

There’s available 4 objects to set in Mailboxes sub-menu; Connection settings, User settings, Retrieval settings & Automatic retrieval. Now, open Connection settings. This menu only consist of 2 sub-menus; Incoming e-mail & Outgoing e-mail.

Each of it required a specific values regarding to your own account such as User name & Password. Set other values with typical adjustment similar with pictures below (in a series; left is Incoming & right is Outgoing settings).

<- Incoming | Outgoing ->

Note that you have to specify (security) port number each of it which is 995 on incoming & 465 on outgoing. This connection settings is done. Now, entering the user settings menu. Change My name with appropriate to your name.

Leave the retrieval & automatic retrieval settings on its default values (retrieve headers only & disabled automatic retrieval). Once you get back to root menu, your settings has already saved. It’s time to take a send & receive test. If your configuration is well, then now you have an active email client from your mobile phone. Just try & let me see you prove!
