Getmail is a program on your computer that periodically checks your hotmail account and pushes it to your blackberry. Your computer has to be on all the time for it to work. It's the only way I know how to reliably do it.

The free Hotmail accounts do not work with BIS. If you upgrade the account to the pay one you can use it with BIS.

I agree that it does work, but its not instantaneous like it is with Gmail. I have seen lag up to 10 minutes on some emails.

Shall we assume your hotmail account is set up for BIS?
