    Just "sidegraded" (vs upgraded) from ATT WM6 rom to unbranded WM6 rom. I did it because I have a hotmail acct and XPRESSMAIL was not cutting it. Anyhow I am using windows live with push hotmail and I am very happy so far but need to correct several issues.

    1. I can't see the other emails in folders besides Inbox

    2. I can't view large emails - I sent myself a pdf @ 4mb and it said file was too large. I don't know how to save directly to storage card or is the issue the lack of memory it takes to view such a large file (The only non-standard installed programs are pocket informant 8 and msft live search)

    3. Any way to have pictures in emails download automatically?

    Thanks in advance.

    I use mine exclusively for syncing with exchange, so the following may not apply for hotmail but it's worth a shot.

    To keep folders OTHER than your inbox synchronized: Menu > Tools > Manage Folders This should give you your folder tree with a check box next to each folder. Just check the ones you want to keep synched.

    To change which folder you're viewing: Menu > Go to > Folders This should list your folder tree.

    To automatically store attachments to a storage card: Menu > Tools > Options > Storage tab Check the box next to "When available, use this storage card to store attachments".

    Since WM6 supports HTML email, the pictures should display if they are part of the message body and the message is in HTML format. If they are attachments, you'll have to download them.

    Let us know if those options work for hotmail too. Good luck.

    I used the folder tree method prior - and it didn't work. My big problem was that under the "Delivery Preferences" - it was checked ON for "Connect and check for messages every:"

    I turned it off and for some reason it started working.... It is VERY VERY slow to update my folders... I have 20 plus folders and it has been taking a long time for all of them to sync.

    ANOTHER IMPORTANT fact (I think) is to have Active Sync running in the background. I turned it off prior b/c I thought it was hogging too much resources and when I shut it off, synchronization failed.... I haven't verified this several times - syncing has crashed on me several times....

    ActiveSync is the engine that makes the synchronization happen. If you don't let it run, you won't sync. Don't kill it completely unless you have no interest in syncing.

    Windows Live doesn't use Active Sync.
