    Thumbs up WindowsLive/Hotmail Mail DOES work with BB Email

    Advertisement



    Great news! Hotmail and Live mail work, and it's pushed straight to your BB like Yahoo or Gmail. The Hotmail setup was easy for me I used the BB set-up wizard, for Windows Live mail I had to call my service provider. They set it up for me (although I found out I could have done it myself from their website. Anyway if you have trouble setting up Hotmail or Live mail on your BB try to set it up from your service providers website. No dice? Call your service provider, they can connect to the hotmail/livemail servers. It worked for my private domain email address. BTW i'm on BIS.

    If that's the case I may just have to drop my premium hotmail account and save 10 bucks a month.

    My private domain email is @storeyboardstudios.net. I registered it through MS live office. My service provider set up the account for me. It now gets pushed to my BB.

    As Diddy indicated above, Hotmail's been pushed for months.

    From my understanding, it is not really pushed. It is pulled every 5 minutes.

    Depending on when someone sends you an email, it can take anywhere from instant to 5 minutes.

    Oh. Well I searched the net and here too. Most people have issues with both live and hotmail, so I thought I'd let people know to set it up from your SP's website, and if all else fails call your SP.

    I was of the understanding it is actually 15 minutes but I could be wrong.
