Problems receiving e-mails on Hotmail account while Windows Live Messenger is working on a pc...

Dear all,

 

it happens that when I have my Windows Live Messenger opened on my pc and fully working, I cannot receive the emails on my Hotmail account on my BB Torch 9860.

 

Is there any chance to fix this issue? 'Cause when I close Windows Live Messenger, the e-mail box works properly...

 

Thanks in advance for your support!

Hello,

 

This KB addresses that situation:

  • KB15747 Email message delivery is delayed because of an integrated Windows Live Hotmail account on the BlackBerry smartphone

As you see, it is WAD -- Working As Designed. Further, that "design" is not RIM's.

 

Good luck!

Thanks for your kind reply!

 

In a sense, there's one notification for each platform, software, etc... it's not so wrong, but it's unuseful...

 

To fix it, in a way, i have to erase my Hotmail account, reconfiguring it via POP, right?

 

And I think I have to back up all my e-mails from that account...

 

I'm waiting for another kind reply...

Re: Problems receiving e-mails on Hotmail account while Windows Live Messenger is working on a pc...

There is nothing to fix. As the KB says, only one client can be logged into Live at a time. So, if you (for example) leave a PC desktop logged in, then your BB email service will be unable to log in and bring email to your BB. I do not know if configuring the email via POP versus IMAP (which, btw, you cannot control via the BB email configuration) would make any difference or not. The way to make it all work is do exactly as you did...log out from the PC whenever you want email to flow to the BB.

Good luck!
