Yesterday I purchased an E71 on the XT network .
I have successfully set it up to connect to my home wireless network, and set up my email through IMAP. This works well on the local network, or through the mobile data connection.

What I would like is for my phone to check for mail every 30 mins on the home network when within range, and on the mobile network when not, then revert back to the home network when available.

The  only place I can find to configure this is in the email settings, “incoming e-mail” , “Access point to use”, and it wants one network only – it does not seem to allow a list.

Can anyone out there advise me on how to set it to search a list, or perhaps just try one then the other?

Thanks for the quick reply...
johnr: ....out of the Box

- but does this mean there is a way, but not with the installed software?  Or "there is no way it will do this"?

Welcome to the wonderful world of the E71.

Smartconnect is the software you require. Nokia own this and it is free from the OVI store. Smartconnect will allow you to prioritise access points. You then set Smartconnect as your access point for the email (I set opera Mini to use Smartconnect also). Smartconnect should then pick up when you are at home and use the home wifi. Sometimes it doesn't seem to drop the mobile connection although if I look at the data use it seems to use the wifi when I arrive home.

Easy Wifi is another free piece of software which will do the same thing with only wifi networks so that whenever you come within range of (say) your mates place it will login automatically to their network.

Cheers, Matt.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
