    What message do you get? I had trouble pushing an email (Yahoo) account to my phone, and it took me SEVERAL times before it actually worked.

    Hello, Unfortunatly Hotmail accounts, unless paid for do not have POP3 access. Some very old hotmail accounts still have it on there but they are few and far between. You can get to the mail by going to mobile.msn.com but it is limited. Yahoo should work fine, but only does because RIM has a partnership with them, Gmail will work also but the POP3 or IMAP access has to be turned on first. Most of the ISP mails will work also.

    Unless that is a paid account I don't think it will work either for the same reasons. I have a hotmail and windows live and niether will push to the BB.

    Yeah my Hotmail account has never been able to push to my BB. Most people will tell you the same thing unless it is a very old e-mail account that still has the abilities like pda.teck said.
