Mail for Exchange confusion...

Hi all

As Ovi is planning to drop the online calendar function, I decided to use Google sync for calendar, contacts etc.

According to Google, I need Mail For Exchange installed on my N8 to allow me to use Google sync.

I searched my phone but can't find it and then went to the Nokia site which said it was downloadable from Ovi Store. I went to Ovi Store and it says Mail for Exchange is not available for the Nokia N8.

Can anyone please enlighten me? I have found plenty of information about people having Mail for Exchange on their N8, so what am I missing?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Arkie...

You won't find it in Ovi Store because it's already installed on your N8! When you choose to set up a new email account, you get to choose from GMail, Hotmail etc. and another option is "Mail for Exchange".... just select that and you're good to go!

Thanks MIB

Knew there had to be a simple solution...

I'm getting too old for all this new technology. I was perfectly happy with two tin cans and a long piece of string.

You and me both... nice to help another old-timer!!! Anyway, two cans and a piece of string is a bid modern!!! Here in the North, we're down with the drums and smoke signals! Works for me!!!
