Hi All,

I have been getting my e-mails thru on my Nokia 5800 since I got it over a year ago, that was until 18/05/2011 when they stopped coming thru, usually when this happened all I had to do was restart the phone, I have tried this but it hasn't worked this time. Has anyone had a similar issue and how did it get fixed?

I am not that keen on a hard reset if it can be helped.

Things to note, I also get my e-mails on my ipod touch via wireless, I am not sure it that makes a difference but don't want to look like an idiot by not mentioning it!

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi John,

Thanks for your reply, I wasn't able to delete the mailbox(es) as the phone wasn't recognising them. I did a soft reset, no luck, tried without restoreing, no luck. the third time it seemed to wipe the e-mail details so I reset it all and restored, this time it allowed me to set up from scratch (once I remembered that I originally set it up from G-mail)

I have also updated to the latest version of the nokia messaging software, still no luck.

Man I have got to get rid of this phone and get an iphone...

Yay, fixed it, and so, so obvious!

I actually sat for a minute and thought thru logically.

G-mail works, Hotmail doesn't.

All settings appear right for both.

Then is occured to me that the password could have been corrupted, so I re-entered it and hey presto e-mails. 

So to check the details open the e-mail inbox

Options/Tools/Settings/*e-mail address*@hotmail 

and re-enter password.

hopefully this helps someone who has the same issue.
