I have been running Microsoft hotmail on my iPad for a couple of weeks, use the set up described by telstra. All's been working well and 2 day ago things went hay wire and now it take ages to check mail and it comes up with a "cannot get mail, the connection to the server failed".

I have added another account using "other" as described by the telstra page, works find but doesn't download all the folders associated.

Can anyone help
