Set up a new e-mail account with Francois instead of Frank in the name.

Your old account will no longer be is use, though if you choose, you may forward mail from your Frank account to your Francois account and update all your contacts with your new e-mail address. Hopefully people will begin to use your new addy.

Did you go into the email settings on the BlackBerry and look at the "Your Name" field for that email address?

If there's no option in Hotmail, then it "should" pick up the settings from the server.

But if it's not, then there is nothing you can do.

GMail is a better option all the way around anyway.

by the way Motorcycle Mama, do you know how gmail sync works?

for exemple, i modified a contact by adding its birthday on my blackberry, then i do a sync, but when i look on my computer, on gmail, my contact doesnt have its birthday added. i have to add it at both places?? my blackberry and my computer?

thanks!!

Default Re: hotmail account option

lets say i add a birth date to a contact on my blackberry, well, i have to re-enter it in my contacts in my gmail account manually, this info that i added, will not sync with the contact in my gmail account

so everyone edit the contacts twice (on the blackberry AND on the computer) each time they add info to a contact?
