After its launch in February 2009, Nokia’s free email service that can be used directly through Series 40 phones only, was quick to gain popularity and is now used in more than 170 countries over the world through 75 models of the manufacturer and the internet portal. Now, Ovi Mail has been updated with version 1.1, which offers a few nice improvements. Language support has been renewed with the distinction between British and American English, as well as between Brazilian and Portuguese language. More significant are the changes in message composition. The text can be customized with a specific font, bold, italic and underline formatting. Another new thing is that URLs are now automatically transformed into links, and when entering email addresses, you’ll be able to use “;” to separate them. Moreover, email addresses that you’ve begun to enter use autocompletion even when you’re entering a number of addresses, and contacts can now be displayed with a first and last name in the contacts book. The team that has developed Ovi Mail is now working on the integration of the service with another one – Ovi Contacts, as well as on the support for creating an account through S60 devices.
