    If anyone wants there Hotmail account to be on there Ipod I did it a few minutes ago, and its a fairly simple procedure. The reason it will not work is because Hotmail doesn't use POP3, but using IzyMail acts as a sort of proxy to forward your emails to your Gmail account using this procedure. It's easy to do, and is working well for me.


    1. Set up a Google Mail account (http://mail.google.com/)

    2. Go to 'settings' in your Ipod, and then 'Mail,Contacts,Calendars', and click add account.

    3. Create a Google Mail account, and input all of the info that you used in Step 1. Set it as your default mail.

    4. Once this is up, navigate to Izy Mail (http://v3.izymail.com/register.aspx)

    5. Input you Hotmail email and password, and the image code. The click LOGIN. (the site is 100% safe, do no worry about your password)

    6. Navigate down to 'Email Forwarding Options'

    7. In 'Target address', type in your Google Mail address which you made in step 1.

    8. As a free user, you will have to keep the default settings in the next 2 boxes.

    9. Click 'Next'

    10. This will send a verification link to your Hotmail address. However, if everything has worked, you should recieve this on your Ipod Mail through your Google Account.

    11. Click the link inside the email, and all of your emails in your Hotmail account will be processed over to your Google Account on your Ipod



    Hope this helps people who couldnt do this before, and if you run into any problems dont hesitate to ask.

    If the mods feel this is more appropriate elsewhere, feel free to move it.
