Hotmail and Windows Live email account holders with an iPhone will have discovered that their phone can be used to access their inbox and send emails. But there are limitations as it is not possible to synchronise mail on your phone with your online accounts, so mail read in one location will not be marked as read in the other.
mailPro can be used to access multiple Hotmail and Windows Live email accounts, including custom folder navigation. When an email is deleted in the app, it is deleted from the Hotmail servers so your mail is kept in sync. Emails can be easily moved between folders and email composition allows for easy file attachment.
The app also provides access to your online contact list and caching is used to speed up access to folders. Support for attachment display means that many file types can be viewed without the need for a separate program. PIN protection is available to prevent unauthorised access to your inbox.
There is no support for push email, so notifications of new messages are not sent through to your phone, so you will have to manually check for mail. But for the asking price, this app provides an excellent means of accessing your Hotmail accounts from your iPhone.
