E71 email problem

Good morning

I wonder if anyone else has experienced this problem...?

I am a new Symbian user, having come from Windows Mobile, and I have to say I really like what I have seen so far. However, I am having 1 problem in particular - that being whenever I download any email from 1 of my 4 POP accounts I have set up on the device it downlaods the entire message. This is fine when the message is short, but if someone has emailed me a few photos and I am only in a GPRS area it takes forever (obviously) to download anything.

I think I have set the download options on each email account correctly - download headers only/download only x KB of the message - but whatever these values are set to it seems to still download the whole thing.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Hrmm, I don't know what it could be other than your email provider's server is not supporting partial downloads or headers-only. Try switching your device to use IMAP if its supported; then you are guaranteed that you won't be downloading messages to read them on your device.

You can also use the free Nokia Email Service if your device supports it; that should prevent this from happening.
