    No. Hotmail is the worst of all internet email providers..... they do NOT have IMAP access. Only POP3.

    You should look for a new provider....

    Windows Live works great on a Windows Mobile phone, but they won't open it up to work great on other platforms. Imagine that.

    Hotmail may not be up to date in terms of technology aka google, but I am much comfortable with their UI/service than google. I get hundreds of spam from google opposed to 5-10 spam per day from hotmail. Plus I've had hotmail account since MS took over. Still, it's not gonna stop me from getting Pre. I just hope hotmail will get around to it soon.

    As a matter of fact, I just started a GMail account today. I won't be using it for a while, but when I do get the opportunity to get the Pre, I'll be ready.

    Used to use Yahoo and Hotmail. Got tons of junk mail, it was slow to recieve/send messages, limited storage, hard to find emails I wanted.

    Gmail has huge storage, I've never gotten a piece of junk email, and great integration with other google features like GChat, GMaps, Reader. Filters and Labels make it easy to find email you want, and Archive + great storage means you never have to delete an email that you might need to reference later.

    you can go to your settings -> account -> and Get mail from other accounts:

    I just did this a few weeks ago, and it's importing all the things from my hotmail into gmail.

    The only thing I don't like about gmail yet, how do you sort in the from field?

    Also AlwayzRight, gmail does not have folders, it uses labels instead.

    Sprint has in the past used a third party provider (Seven, I think) to make Sprint Mobile Email (I think that's what it's called). That allowed push from Hotmail, but I think it used a text message mechanism. I don't think you'll see that for the Pre any time soon. But an application to check Hotmail via the web doesn't seem like it would be too hard.

    It was a rather annemic joke, sorry. G-mail is perpetually in beta release, meaning it is never a final version.

    As in you want to find all posts from Bob Jones?

    Searching in Gmail uses the same kind of language as Google Search. For finding messages by sender you do a search for "from:bob.jones@email.com" or "from:Bob Jones."

    Really? Most people I know ONLY have gmail or yahoo. I laugh every time I see someone with a hotmail or aim address. No offense though, seriously.

    Gmail isn't filtering out your junk mail? That's odd, because until I told Hotmail to only put people I knew into the inbox, all I got was spam. Different strokes, different folks, I guess. Maybe try setting up a new gmail account and see if that helps. I truly get almost zero spams in my inbox with gmail, and my guess is for most people, that's their experience too.
