    Hotmail on the Bb without going through the website?

    Advertisement



    Is there a way to use a hotmail email address on the Bb 8800 without just going through the hotmail website?

    I'd want to just open an application and have it just go right to my inbox, is that at all possible??

    I found this program:

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ds/links/6/106

    but it doesnt show up on the application loader!

    Any ideas?

    I know someone on here has hotmail!


    thanks a bunch!!


    -Charlie

    I was able to get my Hotmail (free version) to successfully push to my BB via the Sprint BIS. Are you not able to get it through your BIS?

    BIS is Blackberry Internet Service.
    Ok, so you're with Tmobile.
    Go to: t-mobile.com and register for mytmobile
    or
    Go to the Setup internet email from your handheld. This is very easy and it will walk you through adding a new email address. I do know that Hotmail will work with this.

    From there you should be able to enter your email address and password. Your email will be instantly delivered to your BB. You will have a little envelope icon appear on your BB when you complete this. When you highlight it you will see your email address XXXX@hotmail.com. All your new mail will be there. Welcome to world class mobile email.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ If you have a very old hotmail account it may work. Newer accounts will not. Try and see.

    My account is very old probably 5-6 years ago, but ive upgrade to Hotmail Live, not sure if that makes a difference or not though.

    Appreciate the help!

    It says I need to enable Outlook or Outlook Express access within Hotmail.

    I have no idea how to do that though, ill send an email to the Hotmail folks and see what happens.

    Ill keep you posted!

    Well I got it to work, but Im ashamed to say that I had to pay for Hotmail Plus for $20 a year.

    But at least I can get my emails w/o having to open the browser!

    The only way I can get to my Hotmail accounts is to use Opera Mini.

    Re: Hotmail on the Bb without going through the website?

    okay, now im having more problems.

    Everytime I get a new email, it sends me a text that says:

    "alert@mobile.live.com /[Hotmail]
    *Persons name*:*subject of email*"

    And thats it, I cant open the email.

    Even when I go to the application on my browser specifically for my email there arent any emails in there, except for the first one I got that said "Congradulations you have succesfully setup *my email address* with your Blackberry device. Blah blah blah you should start receiving new messeges in approximately 20 mins."

    Any ideas??
