    I got my ipod touch awhile ago and just got the new update! I've been loving it so far! Just recently I've tried to use the e-mail feature. I use hotmail and I'm not sure what to fill in or where I can find the info I need to get the e-mail to work! Help!

    Hi,

    I believe you need the premium hotmail account (plus, i think its called, basically if you pay an annual subscription) Only then you will be able to use the POP3 settings (manually entering it in i think under other).

    However i just make a shortcut to add to the home screen as i dont believe i will ever want to pay for hotmail when the free version is just as good.

    To add an icon to the home screen (incase you dont know) when in safari touch the plus symbol on the botton bar and touch 'Add to home screen'

    Switch to Gmail or Yahoo or, like the others said, pay for the premium Microsoft mail.

    Wow if this is true (and it probably is) that really sucks. Yahoo and Gmail both work great, the UI is awesome, I actually prefer to check my mail on my iPod even if I'm sitting at my computer. It is definetly worth the hassle of getting a new email address.

    You can also just check the email on Safari, just like you would on a desktop/laptop.
