We all agree that email is something we use every day, checking mail on your mobile phone while sitting in a cafe sipping your Macchiato, sounds great isn’t it?
Many of us are using Gmail for private or even business mail, Gmail has it’s own mobile mail client, which works quite well, but on Series60 phone you can use internal Messaging client and enjoy many of it’s useful features including IMAP Inbox.
Setting up S60 Messaging client for Gmail is a bit tricky, luckily guys from Mobile Pakistan made an effort to compile complete manual how to actually do it. This video below shows you how to setup your Gmail IMAP Inbox on Series60 phone and fetch email over WLAN using HandyWi.
Before you start, please make sure you enabled IMAP in your Gmail account settings (first step in this manual).
