Mail on OVI by NOKIA

11 02 2009

Nokia have launched the Mail on OVI.

mailonovi

http://mail.ovi.com

nokiaaddict@ovi.com

Just tried the online version and have it setup on my E71 🙂

****WARNING****

I setup Mail On OVI, then went into Contacts on OVI to chat with my friends and ALL my contacts have disappeared, yip NOKIA have done it again, they have fecked up on merging systems. They cocked up Share On OVI when they combined it with your Nokia Account, now thye have done the same with this. I can’t be arsed with this today! Do I try and remember all my contacts or just ditch the service and stick with gtalk with gerrymoth@nokiaaddict.com You know where you’ll find me 😦

I have my contacts back again, seems there was a problem with the Nokia servers which has now been resolved, see the Nokia Betlabs Bog for more detail HERE

Oh and settings for Mail on OVI to use on any email client are:-

Incoming:
username@ovi.com & password
imap.mail.ovi.com
IMAP4
SSL/TLS
Port 993

Outgoing:
username@ovi.com & password

via web, my contacts on Ovi are intact … I don’t think there is actually any integration between these services just yet so contacts within mail are blank outside of those people you’ve started to email

No problems like that here, just checked after reading my GReader when your post popped up.

My contacts I synced from OVI sync and my phone appear on OVI.com contacts. The old Nokia Chat which is now Contacts on OVI had different contacts which I added manually. When I opened mail on OVI there are no contacts at all, so went back to nokia Chat and all contacts have disappeared.

Nokia need to common up all contacts between OVI/Mail/CONTACTS/whatever, as at the moment its a total friggin mess. Maybe I should just wait till they’ve finish before starting to use any of their services as it pisses me off losing data and having to reenter 😦

It would be best to wait for the Official announcement of mail on OVI really, as Im sure its almost completed now, however, sending them feedback now can only be a positive, anything to improve the service is a plus I would say.

Both Nokia Chat, and Contacts on OVI are back in full swing Gerry.!

I’m pretty sure that line “IMAP4” is not correct/relevant for ‘outgoing’.
