Setting up push mail on Samsung Wave

I have put together this tutorial on activating your push mail on Samsung Wave. While the process was not easy and intuitive as it was on my Nokia E63, it nevertheless worked perfectly for me. I have seen in consumer forums that some users have struggled with it, so I thought of posting this tutorial. Hope this helps other Wave users.

To start with, the Samsung Wave uses Exchange ActivSync (EAS), a Microsoft software that allows PDAs and wireless devices to synchronise mail, contacts etc. with mail servers. Gmail, and more recently hotmail support EAS. I have been searching the net to see if Yahoo! mail supports EAS but can't find a confirmation. Based on my own experience, I can put down the process for setting up gmail and hotmail on your phone.


1. Press the diamond shaped centre key on the phone to go to the menu, where you should see the my accounts option



2. Under my accounts, you will see the following screen, directly click on Exchange ActiveSync Icon


3. You will see the following fields


Enter your details according to the account that you are setting up

For gmail
Email Address : username@googlemail.com
Username : username
Password : enter your password
Server URL : m.google.com
Domain : leave this blank
Use SSL - select to highlight in green

For hotmail

Email Address : username@hotmail.com
Username : username@hotmail.com
Password : enter your password

Server URL : m.hotmail.com
Domain : leave this blank
Use SSL - select to highlight in green

When it is done, save the settings. You should now be able to see your account set up under my accounts. You can tweak the sync settings below.



Also do you see the little icon  above the sync settings? That takes you into sync schedule, which is a critical part of setup. By default, it is defined as push, you can set it as anything else, to ensure that your mail gets synced automatically.



That's it. Now you can enjoy push mail on your Samsung Wave!
