Using Mail For Exchange on an N80

For some strange reason, Nokia stopped supporting N80 for their new Mail for Exchange client software. So you have to get the 1.3.0 version from them.

Now, I have the client. How do I test, ‘coz I dont have an Exchange server. No worries. Mail2Web provides you a FREE account for synchronising your email, contacts and calendar LIVE !

Get an account from them and enter the  details in MailforExchange Client as such:

Server name:mobile.exchange.mail2web.com

username: youraccount@mail2web.com

password: yourpassword

Domain: ad2

Important:

1.Make sure you make you select ” Keep Items on phone” for Contacts, Calendar etc on Initial Sync option

2.Make sure you select “Phone wins” option for In case of conflict option

Otherwise you can be sure that you lose your contacts from the phone, as the default options are “Delete Items on the Phone” and ” Server wins” .

Anyway, it will be wiser to make a backup of your contacts and other data.

If you wish to receive email alerts as an when they arrive, you have set this explicitly in the option.

Now you can forward your e-mail to the web2mail account….If you have a gmail account you can even have a rule based forward so that only some important messages get forwarded and “pushed”.

    I dont really see why you would send all your email to mail2web.com and let them run the “exchange server” why not simply point the software at you own exchange server ?

    Thanks John for passing by.
    I just wanted to get a FREE push. I don’t have enough resources to get an Exchange Server running.
    Your logic suggests:
    We need not have any free Gmail accounts. We can have our own Mail servers.
    We need not have a free wordpress.com blog. We can have our own blog.

    Thanks John again for the comment.
    Regards
