    ok im playing about with email forwarding as i can recive PoP emails on my phone and hotmail doesnt support it unless your a premium member.

    so i have gone to the option and email forwarding tab on hotmail. it tells me this

    so i put in my gmail account address and it re iterates the above. but sureley gmail.com is a custom domain.

    so i try and forwards it to my old website address no-mistakes@ubern00b.com
    it still reiterates that you can only send to custom domains or any MS associated domain.

    am i missing the point. and can some on etry it to see if im just being incredibly thick.

    Gmail.com is not a custom domain. In fact, it's Microsoft/Hotmail's main competitor: Google/Gmail. They'd be crazy to allow you to forward to their biggest competitor!

    EDIT: A custom domain would probably be one that you own... not Comcast, Charter, Gmail, ATT.net, BellSouth.net, etc.

    Hmm... no idea why it won't let you forward to ubern00b. Have you sent an e-mail to Hotmail support?

    i dint think of that :P im such a n00b at times. i did look in the FAQ and found no mention of email forwarding. all i wanna do is pick up my email on my phone and as you need to pay for pop access and im cheap i wanted an alternitiave. that doesnt involve going to http://mobile.live.com/

    ill drop hotmail support a line see what they say.
