    I'm wondering the same exact thing...

    I've had my hotmail e-mail address hooked up and working for about 3 months now.

    Did you have to change any settings on your hotmail account from your PC?

    I have had mine working for a while, I thought it was dependent on age of your hotmail account, maybe I just smoke too much. ~via BB8830 (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I could never get mine to work properly. Says I have it set up but I never get mail from my hotmail on the BB.

    I had this case on BIS for one of my IMAP accounts before.

    The following was observed:
    1) Firewall Logs indicating BIS was polling IMAP server was entering Firewall on port 993
    2) Exchange Logs indicated that IMAP was polled and sent email data for unread messages to RIM.
    3) No Email was delivered to handheld.

    After speaking with my Carrier and resulting in RIM escalation they manually polled the BIS account once and it continues to work to this day. Not I had to provide logs to Carrier before they would take this seriously.

    This meaning your account could be setup properly but may require to be manually polled for the first time.

    After This BIS update last night I decided to delete the email account and try to set it up again. Now i cant even get it set up. I have the other accounts setup and keep getting text messages from RIM to not delete the messages and they would be processed by the server from all the accounts.
