    I have a question about setting up Windows Live Mail on my phone.

    I have it all set up as a POP account, all of the settings seem to be correct. I turned off notifications but when I send test mails to myself and check the phone, they are there like they are supposed to be. When I delete, they do show up in my actual deleted items folder (on both the phone and the online client).

    But here's my question. How do I make the box show up exactly the same way on the phone as it does online? With access to all of my folders and any mail that I have stored in my inbox? I only seem to be able to see/access the things that have gone on since I added the client.

    I can't access any of my folders, only the main ones like inbox, trash, drafts and sent. I would like to be able to access these too if I am out and want to see an email I already read last week and stored in a personal folder.

    POP3 doesn't sync between your phone and live account. You need an email service that does IMAP like Yahoo or Google. IMAP will sync what you do on your phone and your live account. ie deleting email or moving email to another folder. I know Live doesn't use IMAP, propably because the alreday have exchange. I'm not sure if it will work buy I'd trying searching the market for exchange and see what you come up with.

    I had this same problem and did a little research and reading on the forum. Someone suggested forwarding the hotmail email messages to another email account (like yahoo or gmail), so that's what I did.

    That's what I'm working on right now... forwarding my hotmail to my gmail. Is there an easy way in gmail to separate incoming mail that is from people on my contact list from all other incoming mail? Hotmail can do this with one click of the mouse but I can't figure out an easy way to do this with gmail. Thanks.

    I think you may have to set up filters in gmail for each person in your contact list from MSN. You can apply a label to it and it should filter to that label.
