    5. Click on Add Account.. and then tap on others.. and select IMAP, now fill in your information like what you did with izzy, Example is below. (keep in mind that this is my info, so fill in your own, pay attention to the ones boxed in red : ) [ Under password, put your password for the hotmail account]
    Incoming is: in.izymail.com
    Outcoming is: out.izymail.com

    Device:
    iPod touch
    This is IMAP protocol.

    The mail is not deleted when retrieved, but anything deleted on your ipod/iphone will also be deleted in your mailbox.

    O yea, I've been doing this for a while already, and yea it works great.

    You might want to include the advanced options for assigning certain hotmail folders as "trash" and "sent items"
