Default Good NEWS! with some need help =(

Please Login to Remove!

WELL! good news first of course,
before (if anyone remembers) i was complaining about my trackball not working properly, so i eventully went to the source ( where i got it) and they sent it in for repair, turns out they couldn't fix it, so i was told to call rogers, called rogers, blahblahblah, they ended up sending me a new bold with no cost! so that got me excited.

now bad stuff, i dont think this is a blackberry problem, but i have no where else to ask,
for some reason my hotmail account has not been reciveing emails sent by facebook, ive done the whole "account" ~ "notifications' and set everything to send, but it hasn't done so, does anyone know a fix for this?
thank you!

I've checked that! Still not working, could I possibly use my gmail account?
As my facebook email? Or does the email registered with my blackberry mail have to be the same as the facebook email? Hope that doesn't sound confusing

If you facebook account has a hotmail email, then the hotmail email needs to be on the blackberry.
if the facebook email was to be changed to gmail, then you need to put the gmail email into BIS to get it on your blackberry.
basically you need to have whatever email address your facebook account is, on the blackberry. as the facebook app intercepts the emails from facebook and shows in the app instead of in messages.

its perhaps a problem with facebook then.
if they arent showing in hotmail (on the PC) then id say facebook has a problem sending those emails to hotmail.

somewhere, and I forget where, under account settings, and under another heading, possibly contact, is the email address you use for notifications etc.
make sure that is the correct email you want to use.

i don't even mess with my hotmail account anymore. its a shame cause i've had it for years. first of all hotmail is slow as hell and second of all this will not be your last issue with hotmail and your blackbery. yahoo on the other hand, i've had no problems and it's been over 2 years. i get my mail instantly with no issues. good luck to you though.

did you clear the cache in the facebook app on the phone, and log-out? - i went through a stage when my FB app stopped notifying me of stuff - doing this resolved the issue
