Nokia 5800 XpressMusic - Write and send messages

Select Menu > Messaging.

Important: Exercise caution when opening messages. Messages may contain malicious software or otherwise be harmful to your device or PC.

Before you can create a multimedia message or write an e-mail, you must have the correct connection settings defined.

The wireless network may limit the size of MMS messages. If the inserted picture exceeds this limit, the device may make it smaller so that it can be sent by MMS.

Only devices that have compatible features can receive and display multimedia messages. The appearance of a message may vary depending on the receiving device.

Check the size limit of e-mail messages with your service provider. If you attempt to send an e-mail message that exceeds the size limit of the e-mail server, the message is left in the Outbox folder, and the device will attempt to resend it periodically. Sending an e-mail requires a data connection, and continuous attempts to resend the e-mail may incur charges from your service provider. In the Outbox folder, you can delete such message, or move it to the Drafts folder.
