Hi there

I have a Nokia 6234 on Vodafone and have had trouble getting Email going.  I use Paradise.  The Vodafone website hasn't got the automatic settings for it yet.  The Nokia site does but they don't work.  Vodafone helpdesk couldn't help and referred me back to the vodafone shop I got it from who tried but still couldn't get it going.

Has anyone worked out how to do it and documented it?  I've done a bit of fiddling and was able to send email but that knobbled web access.

Any help much appreciated. Of course, one of these days Vodafone will put automatic settings that actually work (I hope Smile ) but who knows how long that will be

cheers

Perhaps a bit of reading at the Nokia Manual on the section on how to do manual set up would be useful?

Regardless what, as long as your got your data connection (GPRS/UMTS) set up, then do POP/IMAP set up for your email.

Do be aware though, if you are not on any data plan, it will cost you a leg! My recommendation is get 3MB for $10/month as it is fairly good price if you know you will do odd email checking.

The out going smtp server address is smtp1.vodafone.net.nz the incoming is pop.paradise.net.nz and your paradise user name and password and you are away

and use the VFNZ internet access point not Gateway

Thanks for the replies.  It's not quite that simple.  We've tried the standard pop3 / uid / pwd / ports / smtp1 and smtp2.vodafone and access points.  It seems to be something different in the way the 6234 is configured as we did all that with vodafone support and the vodafone shop so i was hoping someone with a 6234 who's found their way around these idiosyncrasies might respond. 

Having said that, having another look through the menu there are more detailed options for setting gateways and access points for pop and smtp separately so i will play with those.

Many thanks

Don't you need 'Mail +' or some such TelstraClear service to allow you internet access to your Paradise account when on non-TelstraClear access networks?
