    Push Email doesn't include Hotmail compatibility?

    Advertisement



    I have my school email activated on my Pearl, but when I tried setting up my Hotmail email, it mentioned that I had to "enable Outlook or Outlook Express access within Hotmail." And it provided me with a link to follow to 'upgrade,' I followed the link and it tells me I need to subscribe to a paid "Windows Live Hotmail Plus," which I have no problem with, but I don't understand how that affects my emails being pushed to my phone...?

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I heard about a program called "GetMail" or some **** like that, but it confused me before I could even DL it to my phone...silly.

    To the best of my knowledge it's true. I have been doing alot of research on here, because I'm new to all of this...(My Pearl will be here hopefully Mon!) And I have read on other theads that it dosen't support hotmail. I just last night switched over to yahoo...thankfully I was able to use the same address!

    I was able to set up my hotmal account easily. I didn't have to do anything special with it, or even use Outlook. I just put in my username and password, and my Pearl did the rest.

    I have my hotmail accounts for many years so I don't have a problem with getting my email through Outlook or my Blackberry. Otherwise they want you to pay.

    Really?? Oh well, it's not really a big deal for me....Ill just try and add the Hotmail account, just to have it then! I read different threads and sometimes get different answers. I think it's all about who the user is and their knoweledge and skill.

    That's odd. I even went on my Hotmail account via my PC and looked for the enabling Outlook setting and found nothing. Why is it working for you guys and no luck with me? I even tried setting up the internet email via My.T-mobile.com and the same deal happened. I can't even find the option for Hotmail Plus, the paid Hotmail. I'm so confused.

    Is the issue on Hotmail's end? I know Hotmail has a mobile option, but that is web-based, I'm interested in the push email where it shows up as a SMS text; it's so much easier.

    Won't work on mine. Do either of you have "premium" hotmail/msn accounts?

    I have heard the push service for hotmail only works on accounts activated prior to a certain date. I have set mine up, it allows me to send from hotmail, but I never get any of the messages that come to my hotmail.

    yeah the really old Hotmail accounts had free pop access. I opened mine in 2000 or earlier, can't recall. I haven't tried it since that is just my spam account.

    edit: just logged into hotmail and checked my account. It says activated Aug 15, 1998.. if that helps anyone to pin point the cut off dates. My hotmail works with my BIS
