    I have used HotMail for the past 8 years but have found it quite unsatisfactory on the iPad, both on the web and with the iPad Mail Client.

    Anyone agree or disagree?

    Spam filtering on google seems better than my other accounts.

    I once had to agree to a free hotmail account some years back in order to get a special price on a new PC. By the time I got home, and checked my mere-hours old Hotmail account, it was already flooded with junk email. lol

    I would have to check but I believe so..... Oh I do not recommend having your email address as user name It can cause headaches for you as we get thousands of visitors

    Well, I just voted with my iFeet. My Hotmail account (and my wife's) are now forwarded to gmail.

    I use Picasa for photos, and iGoogle anyway, so it makes sense.

    Gmail does seem to play much better on the iPad, both in the iPad mail client and direct on the web. Hotmail is pretty bad on both counts.

    I have HoTMaiL set up as EXCHANGE and it works about as well as GMail which is setup as IMAP. I do find that HoTMail is a little less reliable lately.

    That would be on a PC wouldn't it?

    I'm talking about what works best on the iPad.

    Having checked in iPad Email settings, I see that Exchange IS an option. I just didn't think to use it for Hotmail.

    I'll give it try.

    By the way, can you tell me the URL that you used for Hotmail? I have already had trouble accessing Hotmail via Outlook on my PC so I would appreciate any tips that you can provide.

    You can use gmail on the iPad as exchange too.... I would not even consider hotmail.

    I got it working. I'll see how it works for a few days. I only see new emails, I will have to go back to the web to look at saved emails.

    For anyone who wants to know the Server Name when using Exchange is m.hotmail.com.
