Hotmail finally pulls in other POP e-mail

Good news for your guys and gals who have been wanting to consolidate other e-mail accounts into Hotmail. (You know, like most other e-mail services have been able to do for, say ever.) This has been available for Hotmail users elsewhere but just opened up to the U.S., Canada and Brazil. Go figure. The process is as straightforward as it could be, and you can now push multiple services through one Windows Live account to your Windows Mobile phone.

  • I just played with this to consolidate my Yahoo, Gmail, and 2 other POP3 accounts into my Hotmail expecting the push functionality of hotmail to pick them up. I sent myself emails to each and there is a time delay in the time they are received by the original clients and when they get to your Hotmail. Does anyone know how often Hotmail pings the POP3 accounts you reference?
  • i have trying to figure this out also
