Nokia Asha 503 - Set up your mail account

Do you use more than one mail address? You can have several mailboxes on your phone.

Switch off the automatic update of the inbox

    It may not be possible to switch off the automatic update for some mail accounts.

    Your phone updates your inbox at certain intervals to show your new mails when they have arrived. This may cause transfer of large amounts of data, which may result in data traffic costs. To save costs, you can switch the automatic update feature off and update your inbox manually using a Wi-Fi connection.
