I looked into this for my mobile but unless you subscribe to the premium service of hotmail it is impossible* to retrieve using seperate software (even Outlook) without manually logging in to msn.

*Ther may be a hack?

WizUk,

I assume your iPaq will be running Windows Mobile 5, so it will come with PocketMSN that includes hotmail access. Just sign in with your msn login to access their service. I do the same on my Dell Axim.

Yep my Dell pda has a hotmail / outlook option that allows log in to MSN / Hotmail to check and send messges.... it's a basic cut down version but has the essentials and no adverts!

Obviously you need an internet connection via Wireless or via a phone etc......

Don't forget to look at the built in Bubble Breaker game as it's quite addictive

I don't do this on mine (I use it's built in Wireless ability when in range of a wireless network)

by using a Bluetooth mobile and a bluetooth enabled PDA, you can dial up an internet connection from your mobile phone.... it's costly and not that quick, in the same dial up way with a PC and modem.

Wi-Fi works very well. Try using a non-password protected one somewhere. Works fast for me.
