Just enter your email address and its password, after that Nokia Messaging will take care of the rest. And voila !!! Your next received mail will be delivered to your phone.

Rather that Emoze and Seven, Nokia Messaging has better user interface. You can group your mail by subject or date. You can see another folder like,sent, draft, or trash. And you can find email address from phone contact or recently sent or received email.
