Nokia Uses Yahoo! to Host Ovi Mail, Chat

Nokia is now offloading the hosting of its Ovi Mail services from its own servers to Yahoo!’s servers and platform. The move is being positioned by Nokia as being more beneficial to consumers of the free Ovi Mail services as it delivers a faster, richer mail experiences, integration with Chat, and also access to other Yahoo services through an Ovi Mail account.

Ovi Mail powered by Yahoo! is already up and running today, and users can log in as normal. Nokia says that it may take up to several weeks to migrate everyon’s archived mail and contact list, but you should be able to go to your Ovi Mail inbox and start typing out messages to friends and family and access Yahoo! services directly.

For additional information about the migration, users can go to the Mail support site.
