All keitai in Japan can receive e-mail from the Internet. However, there are generally limitations that are not present with regular e-mail, and there are also different kinds of keitai e-mail.

Note

To successfully receive e-mail sent from keitai, your MX record must point to a host and not an IP address.

docomo

All docomo handsets have the ability to send and receive Email.

Docomo has a short message service (which costs money) and a free message service (where you can receive short advertising messages without charge) that are entirely separate from the iMode e-mail service, and should not be confused with it.

iMode e-mail addresses always end in @docomo.ne.jp, unless your keitai is set to go through an alternate data carrier (a rare occurrence). The maximum length of an e-mail address that most, if not all, phones can deal with is 50 bytes; anything after that will be truncated on receipt, and cannot be entered into the phone when sending.

au

All email addresses are of the form xxxx@ezweb.ne.jp.

SoftBank

Because of SoftBank's history, there are several different patterns for SoftBank handsets.
