    HOTMAIL HELP

    Advertisement



    I have a 7290 with T-Mobile service and one of my main e-mail accounts is a Hotmail account. Because BBs don't support Hotmail accounts because they are not POP I am currently using MSN Mobile alerts to get SMS messages when I get a new e-mail and then manually checking my Hotmail with the browser. Does anyone have any advice on any easier way to get my mail, or even a good e-mail account I can get that will work on my BB and that I can forward my Hotmail messages to? Thanks

    Pay for Hotmail Plus (I think thats what it's called). It will let you use your hotmail as POP.

    Or go to http://www.fastmail.fa and forward your Hotmail to your BlackBerry by creating an account there and adding it to your BIS.

    Or you can just forward it to your tmo.blackberry.net address

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    For the record, it is Hotmail that doesn't support ANYTHING. Hotmail has created a closed web-app which cannot be used for anything worth while without logging in to a MS branded site with ads.

    Get a Yahoo! or GMail account, then forward your hotmail. Yahoo! and GMail are both push-push when added to your BIS account.

    I have a Yahoo! account but can only forward POP e-mail accounts to it. I have heard from a couple people that GMail works for forwarding Hotmail, but to get an account you need an "invite" from a current account holder. Can anyone here send me one so I can get a GMail account of my own? If so please let me know or send one to me directly at jlesh@tmo.blackberry.net Thanks again everyone.

    You don't need an invitation. You can sign up by SMS at this site:

    Re: HOTMAIL HELP

    I'm really confused here...I have two free hotmail addresses and receive mail for both on my BB 7250 (US Cellular) without any problem. Is this just isolated to Tmo?

    Someone try emailing me at mlovell1976@hotmail.com just so I can be sure?

    Re: HOTMAIL HELP

    Thanks Dasupaman

    I received it via my hotmail address straight to my BB......I sent you a reply but forgot to change my sent-from...but it DID work.

    So I wonder if it is a carrier issue??

    BTW with the new BIS, if you reply from an account, the reply to address is the same. You don't have to change it anymore.
