No, just Blackberries...

Does anyone here have a Blackberry and if they do, can you access hotmail on it? I don't mean by logging in to it via the net but by having the messages delivered onto your phone like an sms or whatever?

hotmail is webmail isn't it ?

You would need to set up mail forwarding to the blackberry at your hotmail account, though I'm not sure you can do that with hotmail.

I presume your blackberry has it's own email account ? ( I don't have one so I'm guessing)

I don't have one either, but I've been asked to find out the above. Was hoping someone here might have experience with it!

I think the blackberry can have its own email, you can add multiple accounts I think. I wonder could you set up forwarding from hotmail to it but set the reply to address from the blackberry to the hotmail. So that any replies you get from what you send from your blackberry will go through your hotmail account as well.

I haven't a notion really...

All that can be set up through the webmail interface your provider will offer too.

But the blackberry mail client is equivalent to PC mail software as well.

That's assuming hotmail supports POP3. I'm not sure it does.

Yeh, for Free Hotmail it looks very messy. So it depends on whether jonhnfás' buddy has free Hotmail or hotmail plus ?

Hotmail plus...haven't tried pop 3 on the account but I noticed in settings that it has mail forwarding possibilities within the account.

I never managed it, but I never used my hotmail account, it was mostly spam.

I gave up my blackberry a year or so ago, I miss it terribly.
