    My gmail account has no problem getting push email. However, is there a way to enable my hotmail to receive the same treatment?

    I haven't even been able to set up my hotmail address yet. It's a hotmail.co.uk address.

    My hotmail acct's just set up as any other mail account!

    Just start add new acct mail wizard... in my settings I've got:-

    pop server = pop3.live.com
    security type = SSL
    Server Port = 995

    Sending:-

    login req = tick

    smtp server = smtp.live.com
    security type = TLS
    server port = 587

    Finish

    Hope that sorts it for you....

    You'll not get push on anything other than gmail / googlemail I dont think. Everything 3rd party will be the standard up-to-15-minutes-until-received treatment.

    At least My fiance's Hero with Yahoo is like that

    Thanks, mate. That seems to have worked. I can access my inbox without problems, but I don't seem to be able to send e-mail.

    Edit: All sorted now! Silly me! I mis-typed smtp - I typed stmp instead!
