Yepp the same thing here but when i go to the site it tells me to go to it shows me some darn thing you have to pay for. So i just go on hotmail.com and dont bother with the mail app.

Well if you've set up a Gmail account, all you have to do is open Mail, select Gmail and type in your Gmail address/password. It will automatically set up. If Mail doesn't display the page where you can select Gmail, go into Settings -> Mail -> Add Account and do it from there.

you guys have all said the same thing "go make a gmail acount."
Not trying to be rude but why is he going to make a new email address with no contacts to use it with? just a thought

Hotmail/MSN/Windows Live Mail doesn't provide IMAP support, therefore it does not work with any email reader that requires IMAP, including the email app on the iPhone/Touch.

Or, to put it another way, the only way to access Hotmail is from a web browser.

Sorry I can't offer much help but you will need the outgoing/incoming mail server info from MSN to type into the "other" field. You can't just choose the Gmail option and type your msn account into it. Microsoft should able to provide that.

I couldn't help but LOL at the OP's post. It's so comical yet on the childish side. He must be a kid of eleven or twelve.

It works perfectly for me, however I understand this does not work for some people.

And no, I don't pay for my Hotmail.

yes but he also said that he already had a hotmail account and that he HAD to make the Gmail which im assuming means that he didn't want to make it and that he would much rather use the hotmail account. that is just what i am making of the problem so if i am wrong correct me:)

Well it was just that you say this:

Why would we be telling them to go make one when they clearly specified in their first post that they had already made it?

Some people did say things to the effect of "go make a gmail account" -- either they meant that the OP should just go ahead and use the gmail account he had already made, or they didn't read the original post too closely. (And to be fair, the original post was kind of garbled and hard to follow.)
