    Error trying to link up Hotmail account

    Advertisement



    when trying to set up my BB to be on my hotmail account, i keep getting the same error.

    i KNOW that my address and password are correct, but everytime that i try to set it up it says that they are not correct and to check either the addy or password, or to contact the administrator.

    is there any reason why it wouldnt go thru?

    I don't I keep getting that error as well. RIM and MSN are suppose to integrate it into the BlackBerry experience. Maybe they have disabled it through bis for this reason.

    Hotmail accounts don't work right now unless you subscribe to Hotmail Plus for $19.99/yr. LOL. Some accounts will work but most do not. RIM and Hotmail are supposed to becoming out with software that will allow intergration with BlackBerrys. Hopefully soon it will be released.

    Once upon a time I had some Hotmail accounts. While travelling I neglected to
    log into one of them for 30 days and, hey presto! it was gone -- and I lost a number of email dialogues I had been saving.

    I think this approach of Microsoft's is rotten. I shut down all my Hotmail accounts and have never since used Hotmail nor MSN Messenger... [nor, for that matter, Outlook Express, Exchange, or Internet Explorer ]. I only touch them when some client of mine needs help.

    Here is an app that will help you forward your Hotmail to an account that is accessible from your BB:

    the only emails that work on the BB devices are GMAIL and YAHOO. Hotmail doesn't work because microsoft does not allow access on the blackberry. i already tried to sync my hotmail account and ended up using yahoo and gmail and they allow access without any problems whatsoever.

    It does work if you have the PAID version.

    No suprise there


    But maybe you want a Web 2.0 design (Gmail), or an adherent (Yahoo), rather
    than a reluctant dinosaur (Hotmail)!
