Hi Alisa,
The email settings are there on your phone. You can compose or reply to any mail and using any one of the accounts that has been synced. The mails will be sent using WI-FI or Edge service.
Hope that helps.

How to open my google account in my mobile? it does not work although i have email adress?


Your mobile phone has network settings to connect to the internet. These settings must match the requirements of your mobile phone vendors requirements. Secondly, you must correctly enter your mail settings on your phone. If you search google mail, they will show you what your settings must be for 1. picking up your mail and sending your mail. Make sure these are correct. If you want to pick up your mail on more that you mobile, try to use the IMAP protocol, as this will keep from permanently erasing your mail on the gmail server making it still available for you other computer(s) to also pick it up.

How to add ringtones


You can try using email to text. However, iTunes is usually not compatible with anything non-apple and it is likely they have made it so the ringtone will only work on an iPhone. In case it may work, here's how to send it to your phone:
1. Open Gmail or another email service
2. Compose a message and for the to address, put (Phone number all ten didgets)@vtext.com for Verizon phone or (Phone number all ten didgets)@txt.att.net for AT&T phone.
3. Click "attach file" and select the ringtone. (not in iTunes) you will have to find it in another folder such as "Music" on your PC
4. Once the file has been uploaded, click send
5. You should receive it as a text
6. If it doesn't work, then iTunes has not allowed you to use it outside of iTunes.

Trying to set up iphone not used itunes before


this covers all apple i products
When you connect your device to your computer, items automatically sync according to your preferences set in iTunes. You can, for example, enter email addresses of friends and family members on your computer, connect your device to sync, then unplug it and tap a friend's email address on the touchscreen to email them.
You can sync
  • Contacts-names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and so on
  • Calendars-appointments and events
  • Notes (sync with Mac OS X Mail* or Microsoft Outlook)
  • Web bookmarks
  • Music and audiobooks
  • Photos
  • Podcasts
  • Movies and TV shows
  • Applications
  • Ringtones (iPhone only)
  • Books
  • iTunes U content
Note: On iPad, you can also sync documents via File Sharing with apps that support it.
You only need to set which items are synced in iTunes on your computer once. After that, just connect your device to start a sync.
Contacts, calendars, notes, and bookmarks are synced from (or to) your computer, so if you add, change, or delete them on the device, they are changed on your computer, and vice versa. You can also sync contacts with your Yahoo! or Google Address Book.
Email-account settings, music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and photos are synced one-way, from your computer to your device (though you can import photos taken with iPhone to your computer and you can transfer purchases from your device to iTunes). Using an iPad, you can send photos back to your computer (typically captured on iPad via the Camera Connection Kit).
If you like, you can set your device to sync with only a portion of what's on your computer. For example, you might want to sync only a group of contacts from your address book, or you may want to sync only songs from certain playlists so you don't fill your device with your music.
* Syncing is over USB only and on a Mac requires Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later.
Set up syncingYou use iTunes on your computer to choose which items to sync. Make sure you have the most recent version of iTunes (on a PC, open iTunes and choose Help > Check for Updates. On a Mac, open iTunes and choose iTunes > Check for Updates.)
1. Connect
  1. Connect your device to your computer using the included cable. By default, iTunes opens automatically.
  2. Select your device in iTunes under Devices on the left-hand side and click the Info tab.
2. Choose which items to sync

Click the respective tabs in iTunes to specify which media and information you want to sync from your computer to your device.

For more information about syncing your device with your computer, see the User's Guide:

3. Sync

Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the screen. Your computer syncs with your device according to your settings.

The first time you sync your device, you are asked if you want to merge data, replace data on the device, or replace the data on your computer. When you choose to merge information, any differences between the data will be mingled together. If you choose to replace information, information from either the computer or device will overwrite the information on the other. These options can not be undone. After that, anytime you connect your device to your computer, iTunes opens and syncs with your device according to the settings in iTunes.

You can adjust sync settings any time your device is connected to your computer.

Note: Syncing won't delete any contact in Yahoo! Address Book that contains a Messenger ID, even if you've deleted the contact from your address book on your device or your computer. To delete a contact containing a Messenger ID, log in to your Yahoo! account online and delete the contact using Yahoo! Address Book.

How do i set up emails on the nokia n95 8 gb


Tap the Nokia Menu Key and choose Messaging. Scroll down to Mailbox and click. You will be told ‘no mailbox defined. Define now?’ Choose Yes.
A wizard starts which walks you through the process. First choose Start with the left selection key. Choose your mailbox type using the scroll key and clicking to ensure the correct one is selected with a dot to the left of its name. If you have webmail or an email address from your Internet service provider, choose POP3. Click Next.
Type in your email address. Use the star key to pull up a symbols list so you can choose the ‘@’ symbol and the 1 key for the dot. Choose Next.
Enter your incoming mail server then choose Next and your outgoing mail server then choose Next. Now choose your ‘access point’. The choices will depend on which operator you are using at the time and you may need to ask your operator for the right information. You can get the phone to ask you every time if that might be useful. Make your selection then choose Next.
Now give this mailbox a name. Make it meaningful, something like ‘Gmail email’ if your email provider is Gmail, for example. When this has been entered choose Finish and you will be told ‘Mailbox setup complete. Settings can be viewed and edited in e-mail settings’. Click OK.
Personalise the settings
Now you need to tell the Nokia N95 how to behave when it is picking up and creating email.
When viewing the messaging main screen scroll to the mailbox you just set up and click it to open it. Now choose Options then E-mail settings. From here there are several sets of settings to make.
- Choose User settings.
  • In the space under My name type your own name. This will be used to identify you instead of your email address when the recipient device supports that.
  • Under Send Messages click the scroll key to choose between sending messages immediately they are created or at the next manual connection
  • Under Send copy to self click the scroll key to choose between copying yourself in to all emails sent or not
  • Under Include Signature click the scroll key to choose whether you want to include a pre-defined signature on all emails. If you choose yes, you are asked to define the signature now.
  • Under New email alerts click the scroll key to choose whether you want the N95 to tell you when new email has arrived. This is useful if you have chosen to retrieve emails automatically – see ‘automatic retrieval’ below.
- Choose Retrieval settings.
  • This is where you tell the phone how much of each email to retrieve. You might want to retrieve less if you think you will end up spending a lot on connection time. The choices are; to retrieve headers only, to set a size limit on downloads, or to retrieve messages and their attachments.
- Choose Automatic Retrieval.
  • If you need to get your email regularly then you can set up the phone to pick up messages at regular intervals. Choose Disabled if you want to pick up email manually
- Choose Connection settings.
  • Here you can change any of the basic email settings such as incoming and outgoing email servers and can give the phone your login password

How do I synch outlook 2003 with iphone


You didn't say whether you're trying to sync everything (mail, calendars, contacts) or just some things or one thing (like contacts only). I don't know if you're using an Exchange server or even if you have the info you'll need to sync with an Exchange server.

I have a Windows mobile device (AT&T Tilt) running Outlook 2007 and everything is sync'd. We also started purchasing the iphone for our employees and sync their email, calendar and contacts to their phone.

I could probably give you step-by-step information (based on how I do this for my users at work) if I knew whether you'll use iTunes to do this or Exchange Active Sync and what you want to sync between your phone and outlook. One method (iTunes) will only update your data between Otulook and the phone when you connect it to the computer with Outlook configured on it but, the way we do it at work, they receive email, data, changes, etc in real time.

Try using this link http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/mail/

What you will find here is support topics and instructions for Exchange Active Sync, setting up email accounts, troubleshooting for contact and calendar syncing.

You can also search support on Apple's Web site. Entering the keywords: iphone outlook 2003 will bring up a lot of support info.

You can use iTunes or MobileMe for synchronization. If using iTunes then try this:

You can configure which items are synchronized during a one time set up process. After initial set up, each time you connect the iphone to your computer, the changes made on your computer or device are synchronized.

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer. iTunes should open automatically.
  2. In iTunes, in the source list, under Devices, click the entry for your iPhone.
  3. Click the Info tab.
  4. Select which items you would like to sync. For example to sync only calendars, under Calendars, you would click Sync calendars from, and then click Outlook.
  5. Do one of the following:
  • To synch all calendars, click All Calendars.
  • To limit the calendars that are synched, click Selected calendars and then click the calendars you want to sync.
6. Click Apply.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for using Fixya and you can let me know how helpful I've been by rating this solution.

How to transfer music from computer to moto z9


I have this phone. If you plan on having a Motorola Phone for quite some time I highly suggest the Motorola Phone Tools for your computer. But you should just be able to connect the phone to your computer with a USB cord, open up My Computer (give the computer time to recognize the phone and you MAY need to download the Motorola Driver (can be found on most driver websites)) and the drag your music files to your removable storage (your phone). MPT also allows you to crop any song from your computer and send to your phone as a ringtone. Hope this helps =)
