How to get mails from your gmail acccount on your mobile phone
Setting on your mobile phone
Ever wondered yourself in a situation where you do not have your laptop or there is no cyber cafe nearby and you need to check an urgent email.
You can easily get the e-mails from your GMail account directly to your mobile phone provided that internet (GPRS) is activated. You can get GPRS activated on your mobile phone by contacting your service provider. There are plenty of plans available with these service providers in the market today.
The first thing you need to do right away is login to your GMail account and click on the 'Settings' menu. There you will find "Forwarding and POP " settings tab. From there choose "Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on." and save your changes. Now you are ready to make the required settings on your mobile phone.
I will take the example of the mobile phone I use to enter the settings.
Phone: Sony Ericsson K790i
1. From the main menu choose Messaging.
2. In the messaging menu choose, Email and then Settings.
3. You will get an option 'New Account', which creates a new profile in your phone where you can configure the settings.
4. In the settings enter the following information:
a) Account Name: Can be any name you like, can be your nick name too.
b) Connect Using: This option should already be there in your mobile phone if your GPRS is activated. If not you need to contact your service provider.
c) Email Address: This is your gmail email address. e.g firstname.lastname@example.org
d) Connection Type: Enter POP3 here.
e) Incoming Server: Enter pop.gmail.com
f) Username: This is again the user id you have been using to login to your gmail account. In my case it is arun.udayan
g) Password: This is the password you use to login to you gmail id.
e) Outgoing Server: Enter smtp.gmail.com here.
f) Advanced Settings: This option might be specific to the mobile phone I use and should be present in the other Sony ericsson models too. You need to find out the following options in your mobile phone yourself.
i) Encryption: Select SSL here.
ii) Outgoing username: is the same as Username as entered earlier.
iii) Outgoing Password: Is the same password you use to login to your gmail account,
iv) Incoming Port: Enter 995 here.
v) Outgoing Port: Enter 465 here.
Save all your changes before you exit the settings menu. So folks, enjoy g-mobile right there in your palms. Well these are just the settings to get the gmail only, you can get the mails from your other accounts like yahoo and rediff too if they also allow POP. You must try searching this info on this huge pool of knowledge- We call it as internet.
