Default Recommendations for a simple e-mail forwarding service?

Please Login to Remove!

hey guys... it's my first post! i've searched and couldn't find a direct answer for my question. i was hoping to get your thoughts on finding a simple e-mail forwarding service that would send my hotmail e-mails to my blackberry.net account? unfortunately, hotmail does not offer a forwarding feature like gmail.

thanks in advance.

I'd like to know the answer, too. The problem is simple and hotmail don't belong together (even hotmail plus, at $20/yr).

Best bet is to see if you have an old, grandfathered hotmail account (several years old) that can have granted POP3 access, so you can POP the mails using your BIS account. The newer accounts don't seem to have this feature. Most of the other accounts don't seem to have this feature. So you may be completely out of luck.

the best bet is to search and see what others have already done.

i do not use hotmail for my BB, but i do have a service from M$ that cost $44 a year. It is called Outlook Live (i think). Anyway, what it does is allow real time hotmail interface through Outlook 2003. You get Outlook 2003 for free when you sign up if you do not have it. So, if I wanted to get my hotmail emails on my BB, all i would have to do is create a rule within Outlook 2003 and send them to another email addy.

hmmm... interesting! does your computer have to always be on, or will the outlook servers or whatever forward your mails at any time?

I have used http://www.versaforward.com/ for over a year now. They forward my email to my Blackberry 7520 in one minute or less. You choose the plan you want

Thanks! Wow, that's exactly what I'm looking for. Do e-mails tend to get lost, or have you pretty gotten everything in good time? They are a little pricey, but if it works, I think it might be worth it.

They have NEVER failed me, been up 100%. Be careful as I had all of my mail forwarded from my AOL account which had its own spam filters. VersaFrowards filters might be different. I had them turn the filters off.

Good thing is the free trial period, give it a shot!

They have done well for me.

Ahhh... I'll keep that in mind when I try it and turn their filters off, so it doesn't interfere with my Hotmail filters.

Thanks!
