    Re: Mails on Nokia 6600

    Is there not a way to change the parameters, on WHAT is downloaded?? Mybe
    this needs to be done from your pc, with your ISP.

    When I retrieve e mails using my 6600, all I see are the headers, in as much
    as who it is from, and then the subject line.

    If I then want to read the e-mail I have to "select" that mail, for it to
    download to my 6600. As an alternative, having seen the "from", and
    "subject" line I am able to delete "from phone" or "from phone and server".

    Don't know whether this helps or not, but is proof that you only need to see
    the header lines.

    Good luck

    Thanks for your answer!!

    As far as I know, a header takes - I guess - less than 500 bytes. If I
    compare

    the number of Kb received when I get my mails, this number is definately
    much, much

    bigger. So my conclusion is that content of all mail are downlaoded.

    And that also includes all the spam-mails.

    I have been using a Psion since 1996 (fiorst 3a then 5mx), and if I compare
    the time it

    takes to get a list of mails on Psion versus Nokia 6600, my Psion 5mx wins
    very convinsing!!!

    You know: old technology!!



    Best regards

    Søren
