    I've got a Mobile Me account, but am looking to get hundreds of E-mails from a Hotmail account I want to close onto my new account.

    There doesn't appear to be a function in Hotmail to mass forward E-mail?

    Am I being blind or is it a case of sending every E-mail individually?

    I want to completely rely on Mobile Me! :cool:

    Cheers for any suggestions.

    Mark.

    What I did was to use Windows Live Mail on a PC to setup my Hotmail and IMAP MobileMe email accounts and then just drag and drop the Hotmail emails on MobileMe

    Using the Windows Live Mail Desktop Client:
    - Add Hotmail account
    - Add MobileMe account using IMAP
    - Drag all of the emails you want to migrate over from the Hotmail account over to the MobileMe one. Just like dragging files to another folder
