you can always try sending yourself an email to test it out after you send the service books and get the alerts that they were send successfully and that your email address(es) were registered

when you are in the message application (the envelope) push the blackberry menu button (blackberry symbol) it should give you a menu, choose compose email.  If hotmail is the only email address set up, then it should be the one it chooses to use as your from address.  if not, you can click on the from and it will give you the choices of what email addresses you have set up and just choose hotmail.

then in the message section, do what you normally do....

hope this helps at least a little

they should, have you tried sending Service Books from your email setup application?

find your email setup icon (mail with a gear icon)

sign in

it should show the emails you have set up

scroll down to see the section Settings, Help, Exit, click on help

this brings you to a screen and you can click on send service books

this will register your email addresses with the blackberry network, and should allow for them to show up on your phone.

Since you've been so helpful, do you know how to change the icons that show up on my main screen?  I have 6 that show up, and would like to change them to something else.

Thanks so much!

to change the main icons, in the menu with all the icons, move to the icon you want as #1 and push the menu button, this will give you a menu, scroll down to move, and put it at the very top and first spot. you will do the same for #2-#5

you can only have 5 main icons on the home screen, as the last one (#6) is the icon for the blackberry menu button, which will bring up the list of all your applications...

you can arrange the icons this way, you can also add folders using the menu button as well to group things if you like, I did that with my google apps and games and a few other groups.

hope this helps
