Hi guys! I have noticed a weird thing. When I go to Hotmail.com and compose an email, it won't let me write the message in the text portion of the page why? Please advise. Thanks

I have the same problem too, though I didn't realise this problem existed because i don't type emails on my iPhone using hotmail. I don't think its an iPhone issue, more like Hotmail's? Because you can type in the email and the subject field just not the message...

Why don't you just set-up the Hotmail on your iPhone, and mail like normal?

I believe you have to have the premium (paid) version of hotmail to do this. The free version of hotmail doesn't work with the phone.

I used to have a hotmail account and used izymail. It works great and u get to use the real mail application on the phone, I then switched to gmail though and find it much better than hotmail.

Hey guys! I tested Izmail last night, and it works, but I have noticed that if you want to continue the service with them you have to pay an annual fee or you'll simply get a rich text message without any attachment.

There is an app in the App Store (that has been around for a long time) that let's you easily use your Hotmail/Live/MSN email account. Look for "m-Box Mail".

No, I don't remember how much it was either, but it is a must-have for Hotmail/Live/MSN email users.
Ill check the app out tonight, hopefully it wont be big bucks...

Does this app give you a new icon or does it become included under the mail app? Like where you find Yahoo/AOL etc

Hotmail - M-Box

I am a new user and was disappointed that I could not sync with the free hotmail account that I've used for 10+ years.

The app M-Box was the solution and it works fine.

I'm just not thrilled with the phone because I had to buy the app.

In addition, I am shocked to learn that no file saving ability other than photos and music are in the phone.

I guess I'll have to pay to allow me to get my resume on the phone! I still have 25 days to go back to BB.

If you send the file (your resume) to youself as an attachment on an e-mail, the iPhone will view word docs, excel spreadsheets and pdf files. Voila!

Does this app work like the Hotmail already usable in the 3.0 version 3GS? Does this app have all folders (junk mail, sent, deleted, drafts) like Yahoo does?

There are ways to store other files. Emailing them, as mentioned, plus several apps.
AirShare, Docs To Go - can load MS Office files over your wireless connection. Editing allowed in Docs To Go.
FileAid - Drag n Drop over USB connection. MS Office and numerous other files types. DiskAid is installed on the pc or mac to work in conjunction with FileAid. no editing just viewing.
Probably a few others that serve the same purpose.
