Nokia e71 problems with auto retrieval

I have just bought nokia e71 and have set it up to recieve my gmail account emails onto it. But I am having to check for new emails manually each time I want to. I have to press connect and then it connects through 3g and downloads the emails.

Can someone help so that the emails can get puched automatically and I get a notification on the phone

goto messaging/options/settings/email/your email mailbox name/automatic retrieval/
Set email retrieval to enabled
You then can set days and times as required.

two new questions.

A)I am having great problems to get yahoo email to work. Its not happening check all sorts of forums downloaded all those push mail softwares but of no avail.

It did work with Yahoo Go but its a whole application I dont prefer using it. Can someone suggest something. E71 is supposed to be a push phone.

b) On my phone I just want it to tell me when a new email arrives at my gmail and hotmail and Yahoo (when it works) account as I want to stay in control of connection to 3g. Can I do this.

well basically I want the phone to tell me that I have now got a new email in mail box without it having to automatically connect to gprs and download all by itself. The minute the email arrives on server I want to receive an alert that I have a new email so I can download it at my own will. Any ideas?

go to email settings > automatic retrieval > e-mail notifications, set it to on. that's what you want. the e-mail retrieval retrieves all email bodies as well.

i have set it to autoupdate..see if it works you think it will give me a notification on the phone when email arrives on the server.

2ndly, has anyone worked out a way to receive Yahoo email?

when I go to browse web why does it not ask me while I am at home if I want to log on using 3 or the home WLAN?

I finally got it to update and actually pull some emails but it was a handful of emails from years ago. Not sure what that's about.

because to have set ON the auto notification u would have had to set a "Default Access Point", which in your case would either be 3 or ur home WLAN.

ya Nokia AP management is shoddy at best. iPhones are smart enough to figure out that we would like to use the much faster/perhaps cheaper WLAN when we're in range of it. and it doesn't bother u with popups and confirmations.

still no joy it still doesnt raise a notification on the phone when a new email arrives at my gmail account server.

2ndly, why does the "sent" email is mixed amongst the "sent" text messages. Its really silly why cant I have it a typical mailbox style structure i.e inbox, draft, sent?

yea it seems like i have to be connect to 3g gprs connection in order to download or even get new email notification. So this phone really isnt a push phone where we are having to establish a connection even to download notification emails. What a scam?

Well it is a push phone if you use a Microsoft Exchange Server.

Gmail is not a push mail system anyway, it is possible to get near push by using imap idle, If you enable "Auto Retrieval" in the Nokia mail settings to any refresh time, when you exit the mail box, the mail box connects and stays connected (so 3G always on). Then as soon as an e-mail arrives (no matter what you have set the refresh time to) the mail arrives in the phone mail box - not perfect but it works.

Regardless of any of this, even a push system on any device be it S60, Windows Mobile, iPhone etc will still need a data connection (3g/GPRS/Wifi) to give you an email notification

open web, go to.

Options/Settings/Access Point - Set to 'always ask'
