I have had Hotmail successfully integrated with my BIS account for the past 3-4 years. It has always polled my account every 15 minutes without any type of problem.
After the BIS 2.5 Upgrade, and reading RIM's release document BlackBerry Search Results
I I was excited to finally get "Push" email from my Hotmail account, like I already get for my Gmail and Yahoo accounts.
I logged into BIS and deleted the Hotmail account and reintegrated it. After doing so, not only was I not getting "Push" email, it was completely unreliable. Sometimes I would get a message within 2 minutes, other times I would get it 5-6 hours later....
I have tried everything: removing and reintegrating in BIS (maybe 10 times), I have done multiple hard resets, Resent the service books...
I then saw this: BlackBerry Search Results
Hotmail issue and even though I have never used Windows Live Messenger, I do have it installed, so I uninstalled it from my PC. I even installed the Blackberry version thinking maybe I need it for Hotmail to work properly.
My Hotmail is still not working properly...
I am running 184.108.40.206 on a 8703e, my Outgoing emails from my BB on the Hotmail account are fine, but the incoming is completely unreliable. I get some messages (with a 10min-10 hour delay), and others I never get at all!
All my other email accounts are working fine - 2 POP3, 3 Yahoo, 1 Gmail, and 1 BB...
I would like to know:
1) Is anyone getting "Push" Hotmail on their BB thorough BIS?
2) Is anyone getting it running Device software 4.2?
3) Is there a branded "Hotmail" envelope like the Yahoo one?
4) Is there something that I am missing? I have searched all the forums, and no one seems to be having this problem...
Thanks for your help!
