    Ori, I did what you instructed. after changing it to microsoft ie I can go to then go to the Mail link but now my bb says Javascript is not installed. Can you walk me through how to install Javascript on my bb?

    i can send but not reviece emails

    My Hotmail account is hooked up to my Blackberry fine.
    However every day when I turn on my laptop and try to sign in to Hotmail, it has locked me out – for too many attempts with an incorrect password.
    But the password info on my Blackberry and computer are both correct. I never have any problems accessing my emails on the Blackberry.
    And after a few attempts / page refreshes the computer lets me in to my Inbox!
    Some weird stuff going on with Hotmail.

    You’re = as in “You Are”

    Not Your = as in “Belonging to You”

    Jeezus people! It’s the darn English language!

    How did we ever lose simple grammar school skills???

  • DonaldTrump

    And I’m not even talking about the guy who “revieces” email…god…

  • Casey

    Hey Donald, you know that “God” should be capitalized, right? Nobody likes you.

  • Jack the blackberry n00b

    Can someone help me, I don’t know how to set up my e-mail this way :) Is there a way to do it through your BB browser?

    Is that grammatically correct for you, Donald? I even capitalised your name for you, how nice of me.

  • Steph

    I followed your steps about connecting hotmail to my blackberry but there is no “maintenance” option under the advance tab. Any suggestions? I really don’t want to enter all the stuff from my calender into a yahoo calender.

  • Nick

    When I go to and it says download software it just goes straight into my online inbox, there is no software to actually download.
    so there is no point, I may aswell just point my browser to

    I have however just added my hotmail email address to the standard BB email client and works that way, but I would love an app specifically for hotmail as Google has.

    Hi, I found this blog post while searching for help with JavaScript. I’ve recently changed browsers from Safari to Microsoft Internet Explorer 5. Just recently I seem to have a problem with loading JavaScript. Every time I go on a website that requires Javascript, the page doesn’t load and I get a “runtime error javascript.JSException: Unknown name”. I cannot seem to find out how to fix the problem. Any aid is greatly appreciated! Thanks
