    PPC-6600 Outlook Email

    Hi. I just got the PPC-6600 and love it so far. I have a question about the Email Messanging program...my main email account is an msn address. Is there anyway to setup this program to access that email? I tried going into new accounts, but it only has options for POP3, and IMAP4, whereas Outlook on the PC also has a http webmail option....

    If not, can this be configured to check my hotmail/msn email via outlook?

    Last question, I didnt get the sprint business connection only the professional pictures pack...does this matter?


    (I already know how to configure Outlook Express to download my Hotmail messages.
    My quesion is, on the PPC-6600 in Messages, under Add New Account, it has POP3, and IMAP4 only, whereas Outlook Express
    on a PC also has an http webmail option for checking hotmail.
    I cannot seem to find this option on my PPC-6600...So how do I accomplish this same thing through my phone?)

    Also, you can access you Hotmail account from this page using Pocket IE and it's free.

    Just received this via e-mail. Izymail might not be such a good idea.

    Marctronixx -
    Yes I use msn email, so how do I set this up in the phone?


    icanhearunow -
    I would think this is more of a reason to want to use Izymail if hotmail is cripling its OE support, unless they programatically prevent Izymail from working anymore..

    have you set up any other account in the phone?

    the servers for msn are:
    pop3.email.msn.com
    smtp.email.msn.com

    check the box "outgoing requires synchronization"

    i have had msn for over 5 years and i have used them in all of my ppc and palm phoens...

    Thanks for the try, but unfortunately this doesnt work for me. I have an MSN address and setup the email account exactly as you mentioned below, but it doesnt work...I suppose I'll pay Izymail $10/year and see if that works since I'm running out of options. You would think Microsoft would allow their own web email accounts to be integrated into their own Pocket OS.

    Thanks for the replies thus far. Once thing I didnt do was when I typed in my username, I did not add the @msn.com
    to the end of my username. I dont know if that matters, but I'm going to give it a try
    Before I try it though, I need to confirm something -
    Once I get it working and it downloads my emails, will it delete them off my MSN server? (because I definately do
    not want that)

    Can anyone confirm if setting up MSN POP3 and retreiving emails from your MSN account will result in the emails being effectively deleted from the server?

    Great, and hopefully last question

    Will it also download all of my folders and emails inside those folders? Just wondering because I have alot of folders and saved emails...

    IzyMail says it supports IMAP4 which they say is better than POP3, I dont understand what the difference is and if its worth paying $10/yr...I'm new to this but learning.

    IMAP4 will download the folders. POP will not. Deleting email from the Inbox will not remove them from the server. Moving them to Trash will. This is my experience with Hotmail. Maybe someone can confirm MSN is similar.

    if you delete msn mail or send it to trash it will not remove them from server. hotmail is web based, msn is not.

    First post...hope this is a help.

    I had a similar desire and was able to find a utility called HTTPMail Provider that acts as an add-on to Pocket Outlook. It allows a Hotmail user to download his/her e-mails through the Pocket Outlook program, rather than having to log into MSN Mobile.

    I found it at PocketGear at the web site:
    http://www.pocketgear.com/software_detail.asp?id=9539

    Its a free trial, then less than $7 for registration. Works well for me (even let me d/l all of the files I have in other folders through a "synchronize folders" function.

    My only caution is to follow the installation instructions exactly as you fnd them on the PocketGear site. You won't be using a "real" web address for the POP/SMTP servers, only the word Hotmail. Otherwise, I had no problems.
