Getting email on my mobile phone


DJM

Likes # 0

I was wondering if you could help me please.

I have recently got a Nokia E71 using the 3 network and I am having real trouble getting my email to work on it.

It is a POP3 email account and I have all the settings I need but once I have set it up it either tells me I have no messages (when I know I have) or never connects (but keeps on trying for ages).

I don't know enough about mobile phones to sort this out and 3 help have been unhelpful!

One thing I was wondering is when it asks me what access point I want to use I get the choice of 'Easy WLAN' which I presume is my home wireless network which I don't want to use, '3', '3MMS' and '3DM'. I don't really understand the difference between these but have tried all of them.

I am going to try going into the 3 shop later in the week to see of they can help but ideally would like to get it sorted before then so any ideas would be gratefully received!

Thanks
