    Got it set up and working fine, but the damn thing keeps telling me I have 7 mails unread no matter how many times I mark them read... don't suppose anyone has a suggestion?

    Sure am. Mark them as read, it clears, next check they're back.
    Yes there's a combined inbox if you dig in the settings, but it's all read in there.

    Let me just say that the notifications on this phone need some bug fixing and leave it at that.

    It's not a problem with the notification tray (in my case) the email app is reporting them as unread.

    it's a common problem, but it's because it's a POP based system (Hotmail is)....

    I find the Nexus a pretty good job of "syncing" the emails, despite Hotmail being POP access. Usually, you'd have to manage both the handset emails and the server side emails separately. Like deleting on the handset, would NOT delete on the server and vice versa (once d/l'ed to the handset). At least there is some semblance of syncing... so I'm not complaining... Seems like it's only the emails that get trimmed off the bottom of the list, and then reappear if you delete the incoming emails that bounched those others off the bottom of the list in the first place... annoying, but liveable considering the traditional way of managing a POP account...

    But at the end of the day, WTF doesn't Hotmail go IMAP??? I really don't know....

    I have the same issues with my Yahoo Mail- it's constantly telling me that I have unread mail when I have either marked them all read or deleted them. I've removed any other Email/Messaging app and only use the stock Email and it's still doing it...Starting to annoy the hell outta me!

    It's not a huge worry as Hotmail's lack of IMAP support (really, in 2010 FFS) means I can only get the inbox showing in the email app and not all my folders, so I've canned it and gone back to the more useful webmail.
