nokiamail.com and ovi.com are maintained nowdays by yahoo.. source: http://mynokiablog.com/2011/04/06/mail-by-yahoo-ovi-mail-now-powered-by-yahoo/

small notice about this settings, I don't know why but after I applied these settings and snyced all my "Unread" email's become "Read", I found some other server settings but it did not work that well...there was alot of problems with syncing and send/receiving emails.

Incoming mail server settings:

POP server: nokia.pop.mail.yahoo.com
Port: 995
If you also want to access Nokia Mail messages in a browser, then use the setting to leave mail on the server.

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings:

SMTP server: nokia.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Port: 465
Use authentication
Account Name/Login Name: Your Nokia Mail ID (your email address without the "@nokiamail.com" or "ovi.com" domain, for example, "jo.bloggs")
Email Address: Your Nokia Mail address (for example, "jo.bloggs@nokiamail.com" or "jo.bloggs@ovi.com")
Password: Your Nokia Mail password

I have been using my ovi account for quite a lot now, and imap settings work fine: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/mobile/support/faq/?action=singleTopic&topic=FA139776 The only complaint is cakendar and contacts sync, both missing. BTW if you set up ovi account as a Yahoo account it works. 10.0.8 here.

Also using IMAP without problems, I would not recommend to use POP for a service that is dead, even yahoo recommends IMAP.

@ahjolinna - Humm ? care to elaborate ? as mention above please use IMAP, pop is not support anymore for those accounts, see article above.
