Ask Us! Syncing Blackberry with Hotmail

231 Comments

Kelli asked us,

I just bought a Blackberry and wanted to receive my Hotmail on it but can’t figure out how, can you help please.

The free Hotmail that many of us use is unable to integrate, you must subscribe to MSN Hotmail Plus in order to integrate your Hotmail account with your BlackBerry account. If you attempt to integrate a regular Hotmail account, the following error message appears:

Cannot integrate the email account! Please check your information and try again.

The extra charge of $19.95 is very reasonable, with Hotmail plus you get 2 gigs of space, ability to send larger files, and the ability to integrate with Outlook and subsequently your Blackberry. If you’re not a fan of paying for email, then you can always sign up to Google’s Gmail which you can setup to integrate with your Blackberry.

    I just got a blackberry pearl with ATT and it seems to be fine other than the fact the e-mails come through on my blackberry almost 30 minutes after it hits the hotmail servers. Any clue as to why the delay?

    I have discovered the secrect to getting your Hotmail on your Pearl. Go to the Browser Options, then choose Browser Configuration. Support javascript and allow javascript popups must be checked. Finally for Emulation Choose MS Pocket IE. You Should now be able to log into your free Hotmail. I also successfully bought the Hotmail Live Plus, and am able to have it synced to my pearl so that I do not have to constantly log in to hotmail to see my mail. Good Luck.

    Hey You can get your Hot Mail VERY EASY. Go to your browser on your Blackberry and type in mobile.msn.com and then it comes up in History and bookmarks and you then are on your way to your Hot Mail Account. Very simple.You DO NOT need hotmail plus I pay nothing and this works GREAT. Try It !!!!!!

    I just added a new hotmail account to my BB curve on an enterprise server set up for my corporate mail by just going to email settings / add new account. typed in my hotmail address and my password, then it made my accept a user license agreement, and now it is working just like my blackberry email account and shows a new mail icon on the screen. Fantastic !!! so easy even i could do it !!.

    I am able to receive my Hotmail on my BB from 8 am to 6 pm. I looked at the options on my BB and in Hotmail and I can’t find a place to set time restrictions. Is anyone else having this issue?
