At first I thought it was a COS, College of the Sequoias,  as in the college I'm going to,  Hotmail situation BUT  it turns out it's a Hotmail in general situation because my other Hotmail account doesn't show my inbox or sent mail at all. I sent up my Hotmail account properly, go to it on the mail app, click on it and the inbox is empty. So is the sent box. Go to hotmail on the browser..there's all my mail! Just not in my Hotmail account in the mail app! I tried to set  my Hotmail account on Jennifer's iPhone 4S.. No luck. Same thing happened when I tried on mum's iPad!


The strange thing is my COS hotmail account WAS set up on their BEFORE then iOS6 update just flawlessly. I get my iPhone 5 and decide to delete my email accounts from the iPad now that I have my phone. When hotmail decided to go all wonky I tried resynchronize my COS hotmail on the iPad again because I know it worked there. But I had updated the software since then. Thus it not working now!


My gmail and yahoo accounts  are working flawlessly on my mail app however the Hotmail..not so much! I've been doing some research on the net..could the update be the problem?? If so, I can't wait for the iOS 7 software update!

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1
