Vodafone Mail Service In Details

Vodafone Mail service in detailsVodafone India’s 2nd largest mobile operator has been offering Mail services to their customers for sometime. Today we bring you an exclusive sneak peak to what and what not is included in the emailing service. Lets check it out.

Vodafone Mail is a convenient way to access emails instantly on your Vodafone mobile phone. Send, receive, view, edit and delete emails instantly. Be it attending to business matters, urgent personal issues or a simple ‘hello!´ to a friend, you can do it all with Vodafone Mail anytime anywhere.

Vodafone Mail works for anyone with a POP / IMAP enabled email account, whether private or business. Yahoo, Rediff, Indiatimes and Sify users can directly use Vodafone Mail to access their mailboxes – even without a POP enabled account.

Other mail services like Gmail and VSNL require a POP account to access Vodafone Mail. Vodafone Mail is also ideal for Enterprise and SOHO (Small Office / Home Office) customers who use POP accounts (Linux based servers & Hosted Email servers) to access their mails.

Features of Vodafone Mail:

•Real-time delivery: Vodafone Mail uses unique push-mail technology to deliver corporate and personal emails, contacts, and calendar data to your device.

•Real-time synchronisation: No cradle hassles to synchronise data between your phone and PC. Emails, contacts and calendar data on your phone are automatically synchronised with your mail server and vice versa.

•Multiple email account access: Add real-time access to a POP or IMAP account by enabling your personal email in addition to your corporate email and there’s no need for multiple email clients on your mobile device.

•Secure: Data transferred to and from your phone is secure with 128-bit AES encryption.

•Security Features

• With Vodafone Mail you can be rest assured that all the information that you send to, and receive on, your Vodafone mobile phone is delivered securely using 128 bit, end to end AES encryption.

• The entire message, and not just body text, is encrypted.

• Additional open ports are not needed, so corporate security is not compromised.

• You also have the option to remotely suspend the service temporarily, at any time.

Note: The features available with Vodafone Mail depend on the handset you use.

    Staying connected while roaming just got a lot easier on the pocket. With our reduced rates, you can now talk to your hearts content from wherever you are. That too – with a standard call rate of 1.5 paisa/sec or 70 paisa/min, that´s all. roaming reduced by vodafone finally….

    i think vodafone has set up its mobile towers in moon, mars etc and operates/beams calls/internet from these planets.. that’s why they charge you astronomical rates!

    CHUK DE vodafone ko everyone. this foreign company does not deserve to be india. i’m an unfortunate vodafone customer. waiting to dump it as soon as mnp is introduced.

    I mainly use Nokia N79, not a business oriented phone but it has very advanced mail client. All symbian based phones of S60v3 & S60v5 have powerful mail clients.
    Another phone I have is Samsung Star 3G but whole the UI of it is crappy including mail client.

    Few days ago, I came across a mail client of mid budget phone, 7210 supernova. Its a java based multimedia phone & not at all a business oriented but I was really impressed with its very simple to use though much powerful in built mail client. UI was even better than business phone. Pleased to see Nokia’s efforts towards enhancement of basic features like email client! :)

    Anuj as you mentioned Symbian based device come with instant push email service but as a corporate user one cannot relay on it competently it has lots of problems like memory hog ,some time even a 1Mb pdf file take 40mins to get it attached talking about Blackberry if the company offers you a blackberry go for it or its a worthless phone .

    Ya, I agree with both of your points. Those type of bugs do exists in email clients as actually they are meant to light usages. Also sometimes uploading/downloading speed slowers down further due to network limitations. After all, private operators are still on GPRS/EDGE network.

    Forgot to mention another feature that now a days, in built email clients also have ‘instant push up/auto delivery’ feature!
    Additional features I have seen in latest symbian based devices are like attachenent managers, remote access to PC/laptop & synchronization without connecting to servers directly from phone!
    The second feature is very useful. Blackberry phones already have much powerful mail clients which perfectly suits corporate customers.

    Why to pay separately for mail service? Anyone irrespective with operator can setup mail account(s) in their phones built in mail client. All of them comes with same features like setting up multiple account, POP or IMAP access, easy synchronization, easy to setup, immediate setup & so one. Latest symbian phones (S60v5) have very advanced in built mail clients. Even java platforms are being deployed with advanced featured email clients. And main thing, its just without any extra cost. Just pay as per your data plan & usages!
    I am saying this because Vodafone’s service may be better but charges are quite unreasonable. Normal data charges are much lower that these. Here with Vodafone, we get just 30MB of usages in 299Rs. Its even costlier than normal data charges of Airtel & way too costlier than Aircel’s unlimited pocket internet service.
