i believe you can't use msn or hotmail to push to your iPhone. just do what i did and set up a gmail account

Yeah

I said the same thing when I got my day 1 iPhone. I switched from Hotmail to Gmail and have been happier since. Make the switch, you'll get over it fast.

Can you not just forward your msn mail to a gMail account or is that something else msn sucks at? Honestly, I've had gMail since it was in the testing phase when you had to get an invitation to get an account and have been extremely pleased with it.

and msn should be able to forward emails...otherwise you should DEFINITELY be switching to gmail anyway :)

Well sounds to late but... do you have iTunes? I could not get one of my email accounts setup, I synced my phone and told it to sync with the email account and it setup nicely. I just used fetch to get my email every 15 minutes. Seems to be a lot easier on the battery than push.
