Nokia Messaging and Mail for Exchange come to the Nokia 5800, 5530 and X6-00

Published by at

Nokia Messaging 10.2 and Mail for Exchange have just been pushed out for Nokia's 5800 XpressMusic, 5530 and X6-00. These updates are over-the-air (OTA), and should be available via the Software Update application. Nokia Messaging provides push email to these handsets via Nokia's own push mail service from popular services like Ovi Mail, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, etc. Alongside the Nokia Messaging update, Mail for Exchange has been added to these handsets providing push email and PIM push synchronisation with corporate networks, and third party services like Nuevasync. Read on for screenshots and a brief comment.

Here at All About Symbian, we've checked against our resident X6-00 and 5530. Both updates were available for the 5530, but only the Nokia Messaging update had been pushed to our X6-00.

In setting this up on our 5530, Nokia Messaging integrates with the existing Messaging application, rather than adding a whole new email application as seen on the C6-00. Configuration is automatic, by just providing an email address and password. Browsing sub-folders on a remote mail server is possible, but there is still no ability to move messages into a sub-folder.

If you have any of these three devices, go check Sw_update, anyway - and your comments welcome!
