  1. i am battling to setup a personal email account on my e63 phone.

  2. BE WARNED – If you have Yahoo mail it will not setup, and the nokia forums are full of people asking Nokia for assistance with this. There is talk of soft reboots and the like, this is not a solution it is a work around. All others work perfectly, gmail, hotmail, exchange but Nokia have not managed to get Yahoo working adequately. Nokia do not seem to want to publish the correct settings either as there is virtually no response from Nokia in any forums.

  3. i can’t set up mail box on nokia N8
