    The "A" method only works for premium hotmail accounts.

    Here's what I get: You're only able to forward mail to a custom domain or an e-mail address that ends in hotmail.com, msn.com, or live.com. Please try again.

    BTW where do you live? I heard only some countries get this issues... maybe if put the same as yours it'll work.

    Method A works fine for me in Canada
    However i'm not going to use it because it removes it from my Hotmail account too. I'd rather it send it to my hotmail account and than forward a copy to my gmail.

    It works fine for me and I'm from Quebec Canada, I'm using this since I own my Ipod touch two weeks ago... and I'm on a free version of Windows Live Hotmail. Only issue is that it often take 15 to 30 minutes to get the email on Gmail (longer if you're online on MSN I think) and my email are sent by my gmail adress instead of my hotmail one.... Also, I always receive a copy sent by my ipod on my ipod itself, (I've unchecked the option in the mail setting)

    still, it works kinda great for a free way...

    where you put your email in there's a box that says keep copy on sever that will stop you from listing your mail all so to the person. That says it takes 30min to get you emails for me it takes like 5 max sending them from my touch to my touch all so being on windows live or MSN will not make a diff and by the way I live in austraila

    Posted from my touch

    I've just tried, and i wont work for me.

    I tried to create a hotmail account in Canada, but i cant, they always put me in the french section.

    I was thinking by forwarding mail to the canadian account, then to my gmail account.

    If somebody can make an adress for me, working with forwarding mail to gmail, it'll be really cool!!!!

    Canada, Australia, or whatever, just one working fine.
