Nokia E72 - How do I bypass the Nokia Messaging setup on my built-in email client and use direct access email?

You can bypass the Nokia Messaging service by selecting Decline of Terms and Service during Email setup. 

Your device such as the Nokia E72 which is a built-in email client device, comes bundled with a lifetime subscription to Nokia Messaging service; hence, during the configuration for email service, if you don't want to use Nokia Messaging to get push delivery of your email, then do not accept the service terms - this will allow you to set up direct-access email.
