  8. Hi guys. For those guys having trouble in setting up gmail in n72/70. These steps will make your gmail work in your mobile
    1. Go to messaging, use left softkey and open setting.
    2. Open email setting. Open mailboxes. Find “new mailbox” in options.
    3. Enter these and leave those that are not mentioned:

    mailbox name: anything u want

    access point: gprs setting that u use.

    Email address: xyz@gmail.com

    outgoing server: smtp.gmail.com

    username: xyz@gmail.com
    use your full email address as your username

    password: your password

    incoming mail server: imap.gmail.com

    mailbox type: IMAP4

    security (ports): On(993/995)

    And you are done. Now go back to messaging and open gmail that you just created. You can now send and receive email in your n70/72.
    You may receive a message saying that “this site sent an untrusted certificate”. Just ignore it. If you are having problems setting up gmail, hotmail, yahoo in your n70/72 you can write to me at
    gauravsinghfzd@yahoo.co.in
    Bye. Good luck

  15. I love my new Nokia N96. Nokia FTW. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

  16. thanks its working 🙂 To remove Gmail account, go to your messaging > press options button > settings > email > in box > select the account and press the delete key 🙂 confirm and off the account goes oo oo oo

  17. Hello Dennis,
    I guess its the server of your isp, gmail is never busy.
    Are you sure you mobile network operator provides internet??
    If yes did you activate it?
    Are you able to browse other sites on your mobile??

  18. Hello again Satish,
    Just to add to my previous message.
    The exact response to my attempt to connect with Gmail is
    “server not found”. Could this mean I neglected to add an important detail in your instructions for an N73 music edition.
    Dennis

  19. Hello,
    I got all my settings as per your instruction.
    Everything seems okay…the only trouble is I
    get a response that says either “server is busy”
    or “server not available”. Does this mean the
    server of my mobile internet service provider
    or the server of Gmail?
    Dennis

  20. Could you please let me know how to remove the gmail account from my N73 as I do not use it to access my email anymore. There seems to be plenty on how to configure POP3 and IMAP accounts, but nothing on how to remove them if you no longer need them.

    Hope someone can answer me.
    Thanks in advance 🙂

    • EEEK!

      I have the same problem as you. Want to sell my phone and the N73 does not let me remove the Yahoo or Gmail mailboxes from my messages folder!!!
      It doesnt have any emails or passwr5ods saved but the email adress is still visible and i cant get rid of it!!!!

      SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!

      • search for the code to hard reset your nokia phone, it will remove all existing settings and return to factory defaults.

        hope this helps

  25. @Silky and muthu
    You can not access gmail through airtel live, you need to subscribe to mobile office to access gmail on mobile. To active mobile office send “internet on” 121. You will be charged 15rs per 24 hours.
    @Suhail
    These settings will work with almost any phone

  34. Hi !

    Simply the content in the “” is not displayed… I’m reposting the details..

    The Change i made for IMAP4 settings..

    Step [18] use SSL/TLS for outgoing server and Port ‘465’.. instead of StartTLS and port ‘587’ which is not working for my device.

    -regards

  35. Hi!

    I post the below following content with an intention that newbies would be benefited.

    I own N73 ME with Airtel network.
    Finally IMAP settings worked for me .i changed some of the configuration given in the Gmail IMAP settings for S60 devices. <>

    From Gmail questions and answers, i found IMAP4 is more efficient than POP3 settings especially for mobile devices.
    (Kindly check Gmail answers for more detail)

    Symbian S60

    To configure IMAP for your Symbian S60 device, just follow these steps:

    Kindly note:
    Sending/receiving email works only by enabling Mobile office and not with airtel live!.
    If have Airtel live! settings already in your mobile, the send sms “GPRS”(obviously without quotes) to 56789 for Mobile Office activation.

    From your PC.
    1. Enable IMAP in your Gmail settings.

    2. Select ‘Messaging’ > ‘Options’ > ‘Settings’ > ‘E-mail’ > ‘Mailboxes.’
    3. If you have never set up email on your phone before, select ‘Yes’ to define a new mailbox. If you already have other mailboxes, select ‘Options’ and then ‘New mailbox.’
    4. Select ‘Start’ to begin the setup wizard.
    5. Select ‘IMAP4’ and then ‘Next.’
    6. Enter your Gmail username (including ‘@gmail.com’) as the email address and select ‘Next.’
    7. Enter ‘imap.gmail.com’ as the incoming mail server and select ‘Next.’
    8. Enter ‘smtp.gmail.com’ as the outgoing mail server and select ‘Next.’
    9. Select the appropriate access point and then ‘Next.’
    10. Enter a descriptive name for the email account mailbox name.
    11. Once your mailbox is set up, select it from the email mailbox settings screen.
    12. Select ‘Connection settings’ > ‘Incoming e-mail.’
    13. Enter your Gmail username (including ‘@gmail.com’) and password.
    14. Select ‘SSL/TLS’ for your security (ports) and define your port as ‘993.’
    15. Select ‘Back.’
    16. Select ‘Outgoing e-mail.’
    17. Enter your Gmail username (including ‘@gmail.com’) and password.
    [18]. Select ‘SSL/TLS’ for your security (ports) and define your port as ‘465.’ —
    19. Select ‘Back’ and change any other settings according to your preferences. (OPTIONAL)
    20. Check the recommended client settings, and adjust your client’s settings as needed.(OPTIONAL)

    Good luck!

    I thank for the geniushackers.com posts and Mr.Satish for his great support.

    Regards
    Pradeep

  36. Hi satish!

    I got it working!

    I used IMAP settings and modified the outgoing server configuration.

    I am posting the detail configuration which i used for my mobile device in the following post.

  37. Hi,

    I am also facing the same problem as Pradeep. Emails are receiving perfectly in my N73’s mailbox. I am using Gmail’s POP3/SMTP.

    Whenever i try to send an email more than 100kb, the email just hangs out after 10 or 15 %. Very small email are going perfectly.

    I called customer care many times but they are unable to solve the issue.

    I am facing this problem for last 2 weeks.

    Can anybody help me?

  38. Worked great for my gmail account on the N95 8GB

    I followed the gmail instructions for my phone but outgoing mail failed. It was setup as IMAP before and now it works perfectly with pop3!!!
    woohooo

  39. Hi Praddep,
    Thanks a lot for the detailed procedure.
    I really appreciate your contribution to this post.
    I hope this solves pawan’s problem and also the problems of all S60 operating system users.

    Once again thank you for the procedure

    Regards
    Satish

    The thrill and satisfaction of sharing provides the motivation

  40. I guess your outgoing port might be busy with other applications using internet on your mobile, or it may be blocked by some virus. Do a virus scan.
    Also try using user defined port.

    I’m not sure if this will help you.

    Try this, mean while i will try to figure out your problem.

    In case if you already solved the problem, post how you solved your problem here.

  41. Hi Satish!

    ya i enabled POP3 in Gmail setting! The problem is i’m able to recieve mails, but not able to send email.

    The setting for Outgoing email which i done for my N73 ME with Airtel Mobile office is:

    username with entire email address with password
    smtp.gmail.com
    when ssl/tls is enabled … nothing happens, my email are still in outbox
    ….and also i checked with startTLS, for this i get “General: Feature not supported”
    port:587

    Also i get same error when i do settings with IMAP instead of POP3.

    Really i’m also puzzled… some where there must a silly mistake i might have doing with outgoing email setting… Kindly post me the exact setting for the same..

    please do the needful…

  42. Hi!

    I followed as it said! I own N73 ME and use Airtel Mobile office plan.. and whenever i try to send email (using Gmail A/C) i get an error “General: Feature not supported”.. what is it? please help me.

  43. Hi Pradeep
    did you enable POP3 access in your gmail account??
    I also own a N73 ME and I dint have any problems with it, I followed the above procedure and i was successful in sending mails through my cell phone.

    Please go thorough the procedure once again and let me know if you still have any problem.

    -Satish Gandham

  44. @Debabrata Das
    You are using airtel live, if you are using airtel live then you will not be able to use gmail.
    First activate internet on your mobile.
    SMS “INTERNET ON” to 121, you will be charged 15rs per day.
    save the settings they send you, and set your acess point as mobile office.

    Now follow the instructions given above and your gmail should be working now.
    GoodLuck

  45. I have a Nokia N73 mobile. I tried to configure my gmail id in the

    section of GMail. I have made the changes in mailbox settings of my

    as “Server Not Found”.

    I have an Airtel connection and my GPRS service is active. I am able to browse internet through my phone’s browser. I have
    chosen the access point as AirtelLive! Please help & suggest the
    proper way to configure my mailbox.
