Default still doesn´t work for me

hey sjau,
i´m very pleased to read your attempt to forward hotmail emails to non-microsoft-domains because thats bugging me for a long time now.

i followed your instructions step-by-step, but it didn´t work. i got exactly the same forwarding settings window like flogo.
then i did this steps you wrote to help flogo and i tested my mobile notification setting with an email. no problem there, i´ve got the message on my phone.
so i returned to the windows live mobile page, set the notification to "none" and i got to the forwarding settings, but nothing has changed. again i got the little yellow box saying "forwarding is only available for live/msn/hotmail domains"




i was wondering that the flogo´s problem was not setting up his notifications in the windows live mobile window, because (as you can see in my first screenshot) i get in the notification set up menu of windows live mobile redirected to the hotmail settings. is that the case for you, too? i hope hotmail didn´t fix this little "hack" in this short period of time...

hopefully you understood my issue and i would be very very happy if you could help me

(PS wie mir gerade auffällt, hätte ich wohl auch deutsch schreiben können )

Well, once you verified through the windows mobile site that the forwarding onto your cell phone works and after having it deactivated there then go back to the hotmail account.

Select from the options drop down "more options" and then setup the notification there.

If that does not work I have no clue. I just setup a forward to gmail and it works. I also have no more cell # to test this....

okay but the set up page in my first screen looks the same way as yours?


some months ago i had a forward to a live.de domain set up, maybe thats the problem.
maybe i redo the whole procedure but i dunno how to deactivate the mobile notification. i hope there is a way.

thanks

yes, it looks the same...

go to hotmail --> Options --> More Options

select from the list the notifiction on mobile devices for new emails

In contrast to the mobile page this will not open a pop-up.

Make sure there is also set that no notficiation shall occur.

thanks for your support.
i had deleted my live mobile account and redid every step of your instruction. i´ve noticed that i dont get these two options you mention in point (6), there you say i have to choose the second one. i can only choose from the notification settings like "no notification", "notification for mails from my contacts" etc.
as i recall this was also the case when i tried it first.
maybe thats why it doesnt work.

to delete your mobile account, go to the notification settings menu of windows live mobile. there you can choose between setting up your hotmail notification, messenger notification and other services. hit the last one and choose under "my account" to delete it.

but like i said, this didnt work for me too.
i´ve now tried to set up the forwarding for an other (live.de) account, everything happened like you wrote in the instructions but again, no forwarding allowed. i got the yellow box again. too bad
