On my Windows Mobile 5, I had my Hotmail account in my Outlook. It looked just like any other email account. Now with WM6 on my Touch Pro, when I try to set up my Hotmail account, it just opens the web browser and take me to the Hotmail website, so I must log in there to get my emails. Just like any other webmail.
Is there a way to get Hotmail in my Outlook on WM6? :confused:

Have you tried logging into Messenger on the device? It should take you to the Windows Live setup screen, then select sync email (I disabled the sync contacts thing since it messed up my contacts). Hotmail should appear in your mail accounts then

heya, I'm a first time wimo user and i tried to do the stuff you mentioned above, but it didn't work. I got into messenger, but it takes me straight to my contacts list. apart from that i couldn't find the option to sync the contact list. I accessed the messenger software through messages/messenger

While you were setting up your Messenger account there should be a screen that asks if you want to syncronise your Hotmail contacts and emails to your device. If you missed that you might need to re-do the signup process again.

only 50 e-mails ?

although i got my hotmail in my messages inbox i can only see the last 50 e-mail messages, when i synchronise my hotmail on my Pro it stops at 50, but if i remove 1 mail from my device and sync again then the device only downloads 1 more email to top up to 50..

all i want is ALL my emails downloaded at the same time, not max 50. :(

Email TF3D Tab> Inbox> Menu> Tools> Manage Folders> Inbox> Folder Options> Inbox Options.
More explanation on the bottom -Hope this helps-

Scroll to the "Email" TF3D tab. Once there, click "Inbox" (on the bottom to the left).
> Once inside your "Inbox", click "Menu" (on the bottom to the right).
> In the "Menu" box Highlight and select "Tools.
> The "Tools" box will bring another box, in it Highlight and select "Manage Folders".
> Once inside "Manage Folders" Tap and hold the "Inbox" folder.
> This brings a small box, Highlight and select "Folder Options" which will take ya to another screen Called "Inbox" options.
> Once there you can choose how many days to download or and whether the entire message or only its header.

Does this work if you want to add more than one Hotmail accounts?
