    Sorry ignore this message. I just found the settings.

    However can anyone tell me if you access your other folders in hotmail when it's siynced? I can only access inbox, sent, etc. Not custom folders.

    Cheers

    I've only been able to acess those folders also. & If I delete an email on my phone, it won't delete it in my actual hotmail account. (if I log on to hotmail.com from a pc or any internet browser, the email is still there) I'm hoping that there is a way that it actually syncs between hotmail.com & the phone - meaning if I delete it on the phone it also deletes on the hotmail server & vice versa - Currently if I receive an email on my phone then go to hotmail.com & delete it it stays on my phone even after I check for new mail, so it actually isn't "syncing" with the server...

    Same problems I've noticed now I've had a play with it. Not a complete sync. Even if i read mails they stay as unread on y hotmail account. Not to mention the other problems I now have after the 2.1 upgrade. Might be time for an I-phone.:rolleyes:
