    I have a Desire but am waiting for delivery of the Desire S. The best solution to your Hotmail problem, would be to use Gmail to harvest both Hotmail and Gmail to your one account. That way you have one app for email which can handle both (and possibly more) email accounts.

    You will have to set this up on your computer via Gmail, but its pretty simple to do.

    Another way would be to install K-9 or Maildroid app which also can handle multiple email accounts. I prefer the Gmail way as I prefer the UI to the others.

    Hope this helps, and welcome to Android. There is no going back...
