What exactly are you trying to do? The BB will sync with outlook, but that does not mean that emails from your Outlook on the pc will automatically transfer to the bb. If you want that, you will have to forward all emails from pc to your bb one by one. With hotmail, you need to have the "Hotmail Plus" ($20/year) and then you need to have your BWC/BIS set up to "poll" your hotmail account, and then your hotmail messages will start showing up on your bb.

I've got a 7130 from Verizon and have all my Hotmail sent directly to it. All I did was goto Settings then to E-mail Settings and follow the instructions to setting up an account, put in my hotmail info and viola, they all go straight to my phone. While testing it the day I got the thing, I would receive the emails sometimes within 30sec of having them hit the HM acount and some I'd have to wait a few minutes.

Maybe this will help you some.

Thanks guys - but i am still having major problems!
When i try to configure PIM and i am given a list of options of which ms outlook is one, i highlight it and an error msg is genetrated saying it is "afile of zero length" and the configure button is greyed out.
the only profile i have on ms outlook is my current one, and it is synchronised to hotmail. It seems the BB doesnt recognise that i have ouloook installed on my computer..completely bizarre.

Please help..it doing my nut in here!!
