Nokia has released what it calls a “Voluntary” update for Symbian^3 phones, which patches a “synchronization issue identified in a limited number of Nokia smartphones using Mail for Exchange on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Service Pack 1.”
It’s a voluntary update because it won’t be pushed to users. According to this post in Nokia Support Discussions:
Q: Will the software update be pushed to users?
A: No, this is a voluntary software update. Users who have signed up with MyNokia or enabled the software update auto-check will get a notification about the update on their homescreen and will be able to download the new software from the Software updater in their device, if and when the update is available for them.
So head over to the Software Update app on your Symbian^3 device and check for this update. It’s basically the PR 1.2 update for the N8, C7 and the C6-01, and the PR 1.1 update for the E7.
Here’s the post:
N8-00/C7-00/C6-01 PR1.2 / E7-00 PR1.1

[ad#ga-cbox-left]We have released a voluntary software update for Nokia Symbian^3 smartphones primarily to address a synchronization issue identified in a limited number of Nokia smartphones using Mail for Exchange on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Service Pack 1.
We listen to people’s feedback and continue to constantly improve the user experience of our smartphones with software updates. While we are working to make available the next software version, which will provide a renewed user experience, including new browser, refreshed widgets and home screen as well as many other performance enhancements, we released this software to quickly resolve a potential issue affecting our business users.
