Nokia Lumia: Setup your mail account

Do you use different mail addresses for business and leisure? You can add several mailboxes to your phone.

To set up mail in your phone, you must be connected to the internet.

If you didn't sign in to your Microsoft account during the first start-up, you can do it now. When you add a Microsoft account to your phone, a mail account is added automatically. This mail account cannot be deleted separately.

  1. On the start screen, tap mail icon.
  2. Tap an account, and write your username and password.

    Add your work mail, contacts, and calendar to your phone with advanced setup. Write your username and password, tap Exchange ActiveSync, and type in the required details.

  3. Tap sign in.

    Depending on your mail account, you can also sync other items than just mails to your phone, such as contacts and your calendar.

If your phone doesn't find your mail settings, advanced setup can find them. For this, you need to know your mail account type and the addresses of your incoming and outgoing mail servers. You can get this info from your mail service provider.
