They MAIL app won't allow me to use my hotmail acct, but I did read that they are working on correcting the issue, but in the mean time, does anyone know of an iPad App for email clients?!

I have mBox Hotmail (iphone version) on my iPad and it works great, but it's not a native iPad app.

Thanks for your help!

I honestly didnt know that, but then again, I didnt really think about it. Well hell, if Gmail works, Ill use that then... I just want to be able to use an email service taht will work with the Mail App so that I Can get push notifications.

Cant you use Gmail to sync with other accts from other services, I think I recall seeing that somewhere?!

Who knows, I'll look into it!

Thanks mate!

Given how much better it is it's a wonder that there is anyone left using hotmail.

Most email services allow you to forward email to another address. Simply set up the forwarding from your existing hotmail/msn/live account to gmail and bam, you're golden.

If they don't 'officially' support this, you may be able to set up an 'autoreply' in some fashion like a vacation response but have it send the messages to your new/gmail account.

The biggest reason I ended up using my gmail account as primary was the imap/pop support for free. I know yahoo didn't offer that (unless it was recently changed) and can't remember if hotmail, etc. does).

You can forward hotmail to gmail and then setup the defaul mail with gmail. That's what I did and it works faultlessly.
