Hi Yupin,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems with email on your w960i.

For me to advise you of a resolution I just need to clarify which email service you're wanting.

The "Push" email service directs your new emails directly through to your handset.

This service is called MyMail and is chargeable. The MyMail server stores your log in details for up to 5 email service providers and checks your accounts for new emails every 30 minutes. If new emails are available they will then be pulled and stores on the MyMail server. You will then be sent the header information for the new emails to you as an alert.

You can sign up for MyMail through Vodafone Live on your handset. You simply need to select the email option from the main screen and then enter your service provider details.

There are 2 different charging options to choose from:

£5 per month- this gives you unlimited alerts, emails and attachments
Pay per use- There's still a monthly charge of 50p a month and you will get unlimited email alerts but will then be charged 12p per message or download.

The second email option that is available is the manual connection where by you would need to manually connect to your email service via your inbox to check your messages.

For this service you would need to set up your handset with the settings laid out below.

13. In incoming server address enter your service providers incoming server address
14. In username enter your email username

Hi Yupin,

All that you need to do is go onto Vodafone Live! on your phone, (navigate to on your handset's browser) and choose the Email option from the main menu. There's an option to subscribe to MyMail within the next menu, and then you'd just have to add these settings to you handset's email option in the messaging menu:

Email Settings Profile name - Email
Email addresss -
Incoming server (IMAP) -
Incoming port (IMAP) - 143
Username - email
Password - Vodafone
Outgoing server (SMTP) -
Outgoing port (SMTP) - 25
Retrieval settings - Headers only
On Nokia N-series - Automatic retrieval - email notification - only in home network

Kind regards,


Vodafone UK
