What a nark, replying to my own thread.
I found this:
"The free Hotmail that many of us use is unable to integrate, you must subscribe to MSN Hotmail Plus in order to integrate your Hotmail account with your BlackBerry account. If you attempt to integrate a regular Hotmail account, the following error message appears:
Cannot integrate the email account! Please check your information and try again.
The extra charge of $19.95 is very reasonable, with Hotmail plus you get 2 gigs of space, ability to send larger files, and the ability to integrate with Outlook and subsequently your Blackberry. If you’re not a fan of paying for email, then you can always sign up to Google’s Gmail which you can setup to integrate with your Blackberry."
Now by the sounds of it, this may not be the case. I know any new hotmail account from I believe 8-12 months or so will not work with Outlook. The hotmail account in question is 6 years old and is used only with Outlook Express. I don't think upgrading has any specific Blackberry features, it just allows new Hotmail accounts to be Outlook useable, meaning you can use the Mail Connector/desktop forwarding?
Is that right? Close? Way off?
