    Getting acces to hotmail on my BB

    Advertisement



    I know there are a lot of threads relating to accessing hotmail but none seem to answer my question directly. My main email account is hotmail, and i was really disappointed to discover i cannot link up my hotmail account to my new blackberry pearl. I can go onto the internet and log into mobile.live.com from my BB fine, BUT i would like to actually sync my hotmail address to the blackberry so i know straight away when new mail is received.

    I have tried a few suggested ways. I tried to forward my hotmail emails to another email address, thinking i could then link that to my blackberry but my hotmail only lets me forward emails to other hotmail/msn accounts. Is there a way around this? I think i read you can upgrade your hotmail account to let you forward to another email address - has anyone managed to do this?

    Or een better, as anyon found away to link hotmail directly to BB???

    Thanks and look forward to some help :-)

    upgrade your account through Microsoft, for approximately $20 annually, you can have the emails from your hotmail account pushed directly to the blackberry

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~just use your email setup on your bb, use the add account link, it will ask you for your hotmail account user name and your password

    you will need to upgrade to hotmail plus for that to work.......microsoft does not allow POP unless you upgrade.

    why don't you upgrade to gmail. you can get an icon directly on your screen and if you want, you can set your settings to buzz every time you get a new email.
    GMAIL is by far superior to hotmail.
    Hotmail is to junior high school as Gmail is to post-college.
