    Hey,

    I have 2 questions, I recently decided to start using push for my emails etc. My understanding was that if I enable push I should get a notification of some sort as soon as I receive an email, this doesn't seem to be working for some reason. I may have it set up wrong, at the moment my settings are: Push: On, Fetch Manually, Advanced: Fetch. Anyone know where I'm going wrong? Its a hotmail account if that makes a difference!

    My second question is, is it possible to set up my phone so that emails are only pushed when I am connected to wifi? I live in Ireland and cant get a data plan so it's really expensive to use 3g!

    Thanks

    Hotmail does not support push. You need somthing like yahoo or MobileMe or google sync or exchange.

    Ok, il try to get it pushed every 15 mins, is it possible to make it so that this only happens while connected to wifi though?

    Thanks

    That is called fetch not push. Fetch is will you poll for new email on an interval like every 15 min. Push is when email is pushed to you phone within seconds ofbeing received. No, you can not say only do email only on wifi.
