Connecting to university server and updating mailbox has worked fine over the past 2 months since I purchased the phone. Suddenly stopped connecting. Have checked all settings. No probs connecting to university server with my Mac Book Pro. Any help much appreciated. Many thanks, Malcolm Richardson.

But if you want to get around the Nokia Messaging then here is what to do:
Go to Mail on your phone - Options - Settings - scroll down to email - Options - New Mailbox
Click - start and then NO to allow connections (that stops Nokia Messaging swinging into control)
Now enter your hotmail address except do not put @hotmail.com at the end. Put @abc.com
e..g. if you email is *****@yahoo.com then enter mailto:*****@abc.com
This is very important because if fools the phone into thinking this is a non hotmail email account. If you do not use this by pass, then when the operating system detects you are doing a hotmail, it simply tell you that it has made you a nice new bookmark for the hotmail web page.
Now enter your password - press OK
Now enter your correct hotmail address - e.g. *****@yahoo.com - press OK (this time you can use the yahoo)
Now you will get an error message saying unable to define settings and it will allow you to manually set the POP3 or IMAP. yahoo is of course POP3 so choose that.
OK - to the wizard intro
Incoming mail server - pop3.live.com
Security - SSL/TLS - very important
Outgoing mail server - smtp.live.com
Security - Start TLS ----> THIS IS THE NEW SETTING THAT HAS RECENTLY CHANGED. BEFORE SSL/TLS WAS FINE BUT NOW THE MICROSOFT SERVER IS REJECTING SSL/TLS EMAIL WITH AN ERROR 530 MESSAGE/START WITH TLS.
SO PLEASE ENSURE THIS OUTMAIL SECURITY IS CORRECT - START TLS.
If you yahoo was working fine but suddenly it stopped working for outbound emails, then this is the setting you now need change.
Port Number - 25 (which is the default)
Some users have reported that it only works if you use Port 587 for outbound. This depends on whether or not not ISP is port blocking or not. I suggest you try 25 and if you still cannot send emails via hotmail, then change to 587.
The wizard should now complete the setup and in the list you should now see the new email but now it needs editing further so click options - settings (on the new email you have just added).
- Connection settings
- Incoming e-mail
- change the user name to the hotmail one i.e. change *****@abc.com to *****@yahoo.com
leave password correct
leave incoming mail server pop3.live.com
access point - whatever is your default - I set to always ask
mailbox name - change this to *****@yahoo.com i.e. your yahoo address
leave mailbox type as pop3
leave security ports SSL/TLS - this is still okay for incoming mail
leave port - default
leave APOP as OFF
now back to OUTGOING MAIL SERVER
change my email address to your correct hotmail one i.e. ****@yahoo.com
change user name to your correct hotmail one i.e. *****@yahoo.com
leave password - it should be same as for incoming mail

I found that my phone was set to synchronise all day, if you go into your email and go to settings and account settings and select 'when to synchronise' you can select a pre-determined time to update your mailbox. This stops the phone connecting all the time.

Out going mail server:-check with your operator Username and password. Incoming mail server( incoming and outgoing mailserver are the same). Mailbox type :-pop3.
