[access-uk] Re: accessing email from my mobile

Hi Kevin

In our Vodafone settings, we have got our access point as PaidMMS.  This is 
because we are on Pay-As-You-Talk and not contract.

I would have thought your phone should contain ContractMMS, ContractWAP and 
ContractInternet, in addition to the three Pay-As-You-Talk access points.

Could I ask you where you got your phone?  I'm asking because, if it is locked 
to Vodafone, the settings will be in it already.  If you bought it somewhere 
else, you may not have the most up-to-date settings in it.

Do you get the error message about packet data when you send or receive Email, 
or both?  If it is only when you send, you must ensure that you use 
send.vodafone.net as your outgoing protocol.

You should ask Customer Services, or your local store, to send the up-to-date 
settings to your mobile, where they come in as text messages, and you save them.

I'd be prepared to help you off list if you get really stuck.  I've seen all 
this before with our own phones until we got to grips with it and now do it 
sort of automatically.

I hope the above suggestions help in some way.

Jackie

  hi, hmm. still having no joy. by the way i'm using the nokia e51 if that 
helps anyone. i've never tried anything like this before, hence  my ignorance! 
:). when i go into my mailbox, into the menu and email settings. there's an 
option for connection. in there  it says: access point in use vodafone internet 
gprs. there's also a vodafone live, and, a vodafone mms. option. none of these 
seem to make any difference. is there a setting elsewhere in this phone to sort 
out the connection problem i'm having? if so any clues? i can't seem to find 
anything. i called vodafone customer service for all the use it was. alls i got 
from a rather uncertain lady was: "all the settings are in vodafone live" ... 
very helpful not!! and apparently i don't need to activate anything on my 
account either. so any suggestions folks?

        If you get that message, it is a problem with your internet connection, 
you might want to contact Vodafone and make sure you are registered for 
internet access. After that, if you are a pay as you go customer, you need to 
select either the PaytWAP access point or the PaytInternet access point to 
connect. If you are a contract customer, then use the ContractWAP or 
ContractInternet access point.

      If you are using your own email address, then you don't need anything 
from Vodafone. You will need to know the address of the inbound and outbound 
email servers for your email provider, if this is your own website then your 
web host should have told you these details. Once you know these details, it is 
easy to set up, its just the same as setting email up in something like outlook 
express.

      hi all, i want to be able to access my email while i'm away from home 
next week.  i'm a PAYG custoemr with vodafone. are there specific settings i'll 
need from my provider to connect? and will i have to ring them to get these 
details? or they available on the net. although i presume they'll have to 
activate something or other on my account. i can see how to set up the mailbox 
on the phone etc, but i'm guessing there are connection settings i'll need from 
vodafone. any help is appreciated. oh and it's not a vodafone email address, 
it's the one i use everyday ( this one in fact)
