Mail For Exchange 3.0 for Nokia delivers HTML and folder support

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 14-Feb-2010 20:35

If you are a Nokia phone user and use a Microsoft Exchange based email solution odds are you use MfE (Mail for Exchange) for your email. Newer Nokia handsets use Nokia Messaging, but for the large majority of users out there MfE is the only option as the standalone Nokia Messaging application does not support Microsoft Exchange.

For many years MfE has been severly limited with two major contraints - lack of folder support and no support for HTML, two features that were serious downfalls for devices such as the E71 that were targeted at email users.

The good news is that in recent days Nokia have released a brand new V3.0 release of Mail for Exchange. Included in the release is support for both HTML and support for folders in your inbox.

There is still no mention of this software of the official MfE website but it's available for download from Ovi Store.

I've been running this on my E71 for the last few hours and while it's still not a perfect solution it's finally great to be able to have access to features that should have been part of the software many years ago!



EDIT: There have been numerous people comment and also contact me saying that they can't find the HTML option. I can assure you that HTML viewing IS THERE!!!

If you have an HTML email click on options and there is a menu item saying view as HTML.
