How to access Nokia Mail using an email reader

Use these settings to access Nokia Mail using your favorite email reader.

Note: If you can't add new POP or new SMTP servers in your mail reader program, you need to change your current mail settings to access your Nokia Mail account. Write down your current settings first—you may need to revert to them later if you want to use the same program to send and receive messages from your other email addresses.

Incoming mail server settings

  • POP server: nokia.pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Use SSL
  • Port: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings

  • SMTP server: nokia.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Use SSL
  • Port: 465
  • Use authentication
  • Account Name/Login Name: Your Nokia Mail ID (your email address without the "@nokiamail.com" or "ovi.com" domain, for example, "jo.bloggs")
  • Email Address: Your Nokia Mail address (for example, "jo.bloggs@nokiamail.com" or "jo.bloggs@ovi.com")
  • Password: Your Nokia Mail password

Troubleshooting tips

If you still can't send Nokia Mail from your mail program, you may be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try setting the SMTP port number to 587 when sending email via Nokia's SMTP server.

Your email program gives you the option of either deleting your Nokia messages from the Nokia server after downloading them into your mail reader, or leaving them on the Nokia server so you can see them online in your Nokia account, too.
