    yeah, the same thing happened to me. Ive been having an idea about this, but im not sure if it will work. In that thread that talked about creating a gmail account to forward your hotmail emails, it said that certain hotmail accounts can only foward there emails to other hotmail, msn, or live accounts. well how about you create a new hotmail account so that way you can forward your old emails to your new email account? ill try it out and tell you guys if it works out

    NVM, just tried it and it wouldn't let me forward the emails even with a new account.

    OK guys, I'm gonna lay this down, as I had this problem for a long time.

    Mail.App only supports POP and IMAP, Hotmail is web based. Obviously you can access it through IzyMail, but that costs after a while. If you have Hotmail/Windows Live Plus then it comes with POP, but your standard free hotmail doesn't. MSN also stop you from auto-fowarding messages to another account eg Gmail. To be forwarded to Gmail it has to be from a POP account anyway.

    I trawled through pages and pages on the net, and found little. Of the services I did find, I had to pay..and I'm not really wanting to do that.

    Your best solution is to export your contact list from Windows Live/Hotmail, set up a Gmail account and then import your contacts into Gmail. Then simply just tell them all that this is your new email address.

    Gmail is great, it's smoother, faster, and because it runs with POP and/or IMAP, you can access it directly from your Touch or iPhone.

    My two cents.

    Then you only have 2 choices...


    Access Hotmail through the web
    or
    Pay for a Hotmail Premium account.

    That's it.

    Take it or leave it

    And what do you think of just open safari and type hotmail.com and login in and see your mail?
