You should be able to through your mobile brower under mail, "MSN Mobile".
As for using the Blackberry Web Client, unless you have Hotmail Plus, it won't let you access it.
For my hotmail, I use MSN Alerts to tell me when I have an e-mail message, and then log in through the mobile browser.
Hope that helps.

My understanding is that T-Mobile won't let you sync even w/ Hotmail Plus. If your provider doesn't block Hotmail, you probably won't need Plus if you have an older Hotmail account that lets you use standalone e-mail clients. My suggestion would be to migrate to Gmail, set up filtered forwarding from Gmail to your BB, and temporarily set up a 3d party app that will forward your Hotmail to Gmail or directly to your BB.

you will only need a hotmail plus account if it is fairly new. my hotmail account is at least 2 years old and i do not have hotmail plus and it works with the bwc just fine.

Hotmail and BWC is a hit and miss. Some people at work have had hotmail for years (myself included) and cannot get it to integrate. Others have no problems at all...even some newer hotmail users.

Rufus and zro, have the successful Hotmail integrations been with TMO, or other providers?

I couldn't get hotmail to work with T-Mobile as well. The tech at Blackberry researched it and said they didn't have an agreement with hotmail so it could not be done.

Does this make sense? Guru's your thoughts?

I am on Rogers with BB7280 for about 1 year now. I was able to hook up 3 hotmail accounts that are about 4 years old when I first got my BB. But a few months ago, when I wanted to hook up a new hotmail account to my BB, it wouldn't let me anymore. But the existing 3 are still working on my BB.

I have a 7520 Nextel; webclient. Has anyone had problems logging into Hotmail using Reqwireless WebVviewer? Hotmail keeps saying that my current browser does not have cookies enabled but when I go into my settings, it is clearly check off. As such, I am unable to check my hotmail emails. (Gmail's nice, it has free forwarding)

Does your 7520 have BB OS 4.0?

I don't use Nextel, but my Verizon BB 7250 has the standard BB web browser and I use it to log into my hotmail account over MSN Mobile.
