    Oh! That's weird. I'm afraid you have to wait for someone else. Won't be long now. Some members are coming home from work whereas I'm going to bed. Sorry. Have you looked at any gmail threads or email threads in general?

    Don't overlook Google:
    iOS: Hotmail, Live, or MSN email accounts

    Have you converted the Hotmail account to a POP account? There are plenty of instructions on the web if you haven't.

    I did it! I just changed my password into something much shorter (old was 17 characters) and that was the problem!
