    I have downloaded a samsung update on my S2 (using "settings - about phone- software update -check for updates") I have previusly rooted the phone what will happen if I install the update? Will I loose my setting on email etc?

    Thanks for your help from a novice user.

    well im not realy sure about this, to be honest.. after rooting, people usually use odin to flash new firmware.. then, u just lose root, and u can just reroot and ur good to go. with Kies, im not sure, so i suggest u dont install the Kies update n just flash the newest update via Odin :)
