Getting started with Email

View all topics

Use the Email application in your phone to send and receive emails through your regular email account or through your corporate account. Or you can do both. Your phone can handle several email accounts at the same time. You can set up these accounts to run through one combined inbox, or through separate inboxes. Note that emails you receive to your Gmail™ account can be accessed in the phone from both the Email and the Gmail™ applications.

TipYour corporate Microsoft® Outlook® email messages have to be stored on a Microsoft® Exchange server for the functionality described above to work. See Synchronising your corporate email, calendar and contacts for more information.
