Accessing Nokia OVI Mail from Outlook Express

Do you ever see those left banner right up on NOKIA Indonesia website? It’s a door prize offered to anyone who use free OVI email service. This time NOKIA would like to introduce this latest service and – anyway - the promotion looks great since the lottery will be drawing in every month from August to December 2009 with pretty fair rewards. Just check it out the requisite and follow the instruction to register and signing up to OVI. Once you have been registered to OVI, your ovi.com mail will be available.



Especially to whom has preferred email address, accessing OVI mail as your secondary mail from browser is unusual behavior, unless you have this as your primary email. But if you has multiple mail addresses and already manage it with mail client such as Outlook Express, checking out inbox will be much simpler. This article will explain on how to setting up OVI mail within Outlook Express so that you can retrieve and sending mail from it without need to open the mail from browser.

Create new account from Outlook Express and give with your name. Also fill with complete email address on address name column with youraccount@ovi.com.



Select IMAP (OVI doesn’t support POP3) and type imap.mail.ovi.com as incoming mail server. Whereas the Outgoing mail server is smtp.mail.ovi.com. Don’t forget to set the authentication for the outgoing mail server.



Note that both of incoming and outgoing mail server is using SSL port. So, make sure that you have to fill the port number with 993 for IMAP incoming and 465 for outgoing.



Ok, that’s it. It’s enough for the configuration & now is the time to make a trial. Go for icon Send and Receive All from Outlook Express & select the appropriate link for your OVI client name. If the synchronization is going well, make a turn to try sending a mail.



In my first attempt, the retrieval & sending test is success with above configuration. Please make a try & comment here.

    @Jayu: You probably miss some settings on your outgoing mail configuration:

    1. outgoing: smtp.mail.ovi.com
    2. set the authentication
    3. use port 465

    ps: Watch out for your firewall setting also

    That's it...

    Several times I had the problems with my excel files,but once I could find out a feasible resolution. This program charmed me and would help in any situation to mind - recover .dbx file.

    Never face that severe...
    It might be problem from Ovi's mail server.
