Nokia Email 3.9 appears for E72 and E5

Published by at

In the last few days, a new email client has appeared in Sw_update on the Nokia E72 and E5, labelled Nokia Email 3.9. The description refers to 'See your emails the way they are meant to be seen', implying HTML 'rich' views of all emails by default, plus there's (in theory) better Gmail and Yahoo! integration. Screens and some cautionary comments below.

I say 'cautionary' for a number of reasons. Firstly, the update refused to set up my Gmail at all... but then I usually have terrible luck with Nokia Messaging on my devices on Vodafone - and yes, there was a working SIM card in the test E72.

Secondly, and perhaps more worryingly, users over at Nokia's official Discussions board are reporting much slower email access times (since the bloated HTML version of each email is the one shown, and that has to be downloaded and rendered), plus issues sending emails and receiving notifications.
