Thanks

Hotmail probably has the ability to download your email to a POP3 client, so you could just set up a POP account on your handset and have it download every 30 mins. They might even support IMAP. I have no idea as I use gmail. ;)

Not unless you pay - or, like me, started using POP3 for your hotmail a few years ago before they realised they could charge...


Try Seven Beta

But why every 30 mins not push?

Will look at Seven - thanks!

Not sure how to set up push as the options only give me timed intervals?

WTF? You have to pay for POP3? Why would anyone use hotmail then, when Gmail is so much better? !?!? ;)

Interesting...
I've just downloaded Live Messenger 2009 (Beta) and it installs outlook connector so you can access your webmail through outlook....
