    The email on the shortcut bar homescreen was removed with v40.

    I still had shortcut bar homescreen email after the v40 upgrade, but the email option disappeared after a hard reset. Additional hard resets will not bring it back. Homescreen email is the one feature I must have so I switched to the new contacts bar homescreen and turned off the contacts bar. Unfortunately the contacts bar homescreen does not have the calendar feature. I do not know of anyway to have both email and calendar on a 5800 homescreen with v40 firmware.

    Anyone that still has email on the 5800 shortcuts bar homescreen with v40 firmware will likely lose this feature after a hard reset.

    AFAIK there would still be an update after v40. There are a number of bugs reported, especially for APAC product codes.

    Each firmware solves only a couple of bugs
    And introduces:

    1) New features SOMETIMES
    2) A whole lot of new bugs.

    On topic: Yes the email has been removed from shortcuts homescreen.
    I dont know whether nokia did this on purpose or maybe left it as a 'known issue' .
    Slowly I am getting sick of these buggy firmware updates. Or maybe its nokia's strategy to keep their customers interested in the handset.

    But I think, there'll be still bugs anytime firmware upgraded. I'm still not find yet any phone with free bugs. Afterall, usually solution from reported bug existed in this forum.
    For example:
    Driver error in PC:
    del C:\10208913

    Problem with Music Player:
    del
    E:\private\101FFC31\mpxv1.mpd
    E:\private\101FFC31\pcv5.mpd
    E:\private\101ffca9\harvesterdb.dat

    Email Notification gone:
    Delete file:
    10275102.cre in
    c:\private\10202be9\persists

    Or do hardware scan for mmc regularly to fix any broken files.

    c:\private\10202be9\persists

    Deleting the file can also fix all homescreen issues like homescreen buttons, music player widget gone, etc.

    Since we 5530 users had this issue all along, so far email notifications are only available for Contacts Bar Homescreen as well as the "new" music widget. Calendar widget is only available for Shortcut Bar Homescreen.

    I agree, for me having email and calendar notification is very important and i can't believe we cant have this.

    With all the modding going on, it would be great if someone could start looking into this to see if its possible.
