Hiya guys,
ive been having this problem in trying to get my Hotmail account working on the Mail.app for the iPhone 3G. Whilst searching through Google i stumbled across an interesting method that i thought i'd share with you:

on the site where it says 'If you don't have an option for forwarding, you may be out of luck'
i used the information on this site:

...and now i can easily access my Hotmail account through the Mail.app for free:D

Hope this is of help to anyone

I think it only works for a Hotmail Plus account. I tried using my free Hotmail and the problem is that I can only forward emails from hotmail to another MSN accounts like msn, live, etc.
It did not accept GMail. Lame :mad:

The only way for free hotmail accounts I think is using izymail, but you have to pay $18 p/year.

yeah i had the same problem in Hotmail only allowing me to forward messages to msn, windows live etc. only. to overcome this problem i registered with MSN Mobile and then changed the settings to ensure i never get sent a message (which will cost standard network rate). By signing up to this for some reason it allowd me to forward my email to Google Mail. BTW i am not on hotmail plus or premium, i just didn't want to pay the yearly fee for IzyMail
