    Not receiving all Hotmail on 7130c

    Advertisement



    Hey,
    I just got a 7130, am in love, a workaholic, and for some reason, am having problems not getting all my hotmail email onto my bb. I use Outlook at work for other accounts on my bb, and at home for my hotmail and a gmail account. BIS seems to work fine with every email account except for hotmail.
    My initial thought was that it was a cingular service issue - I work in and out of service areas, but that seems less and less plausible. Tried deleting and reinitializing the email account thru the bb, but to no avail.
    soymilk and cookies to whoever can help.

    thx.

    sirbateman, Welcome to PinStack.

    I'm not familiar with Hotmail on BBs, but I have heard a lot of problems concerning it. I don't think is has to do with Cingular. Hopefully someone will be along and give you more information soon. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Unless you have the paid Hotmail "plus", it will not work with your BlackBerry.

    This is strictly a limit which Microsoft has placed on their Hotmail service. It has nothing to do with your carrier or your BlackBerry.

    So what you're saying is that they intentionally will only allow some messages to go through, nonselectively, randomly, out of the clear blue sky? That seems hard to believe. It's not as if I'm only receiving emails from certain domains, or anything seemingly filtered. It's totally random.

    Are you saying that some of the email from your hotmail account gets forwarded to your BB and some doesn't? That wasn't clear in the original post. I understood that you were not getting any from the Hotmail account, which is typical of the hotmail problems with BB, from what I have read.

    Correct. Sorry for the confusion. Of the email sent to my hotmail account, I'm only receiving roughly half on the BB. Again, as far as I can tell, there is no rhyme or reason to what is pushed, and what gets left behind.

    Thx.

    When you use outlook to read you Hotmail account, does it pull the emails from Hotmail. If so, the ones you are not getting on your BB are no longer on the Hotmail server to be read. You need to set up your Outlook Email Account Settings to Leave Mail On Server when it checks the Hotmail account.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, that's not the problem. I have the issue even when Outlook isn't launched, and isn't pulling off the server. The way I discovered that I wasn't receiving all my email was that I launched Outlook after being away for 2 days...so there wasn't even an opportunity to pull from the hotmail server.

    I'm clueless.

    Seems like the general consensus is (and this is not new) that Hotmail was great for what it was in 1998. And when you've had an account for 8 years, and everyone has the addy, it's hard to let go.

    But maybe the time has come.

    Thanks all for your support and savvy.

    I have the same model (7130c) and provider as well as a hotmail paid account and it seems to work fine for me right out of the box (so to speak).

    Edit to mention...The only way I was able to use Hotmail with another email client (Outlook, etc) is to use a program called Hotmail Popper. Works great.
