    is it possible, and if it is, how can i send and receive emails from my pc to my wii. when i enter my email address into my wii, it tells me that the new address has to register my wii's email adress to use it... or something like that! :idea:

    You should recieve an email on the account you entered on your Wii asking you to click a link to confirm the add. After you've done that you can send emails back and forth from PC to Wii

    It works, but it's a little bit flaky. Sometimes there is quite a delay, but my biggest problem with it is that when somebody emails your console you get the pulsing blue light to tell you you've a message but there's no way of telling when the message was sent. If you reply, the message trail then tells you the date and time that you replied, but there's no data on when the original message was received.

    Can anybody confirm that when you email attachments to the Wii, it will only support one? I've tried sending multiple pictures and only the first one seems to get through..........

    I can just open my hotmail account in wii opera browser. But I don't really get the point in doing so, since emailing on the pc is so much faster and easier.

    Yes you can use the browser to view web based email (Hotmail, Gmail etc) but the console is able to be emailed directly - messages appearing on the messageboard.

    It's useful to email the Wii with attached pictures, as the PhotoChannel will pick these up from the messageboard as well as from an SD card..........

    It appears that I'm not able to get messages from e-mails address. I added my hotmail address and replied to the message, but the wii never got the reply.
    Any ideas?

    it's pretty good, but i heard that the ds version was better although i never played it. gamespot gave it a 5.5 out of 10 but i don't think it's that bad...

    i don't think anything happens, first you have to add them, and then they have to reply to the message that is sent by the wii, then you can email each other...

    ok ok, so much conflicting information about emailing photos i've read recently. you seem to be certain emailing photos is possible.

    i've tried from a hotmail/orange/yahoo account and no attachment ever appears. pics of all shapes and sizes never turn up...

    its driving me nuts so any info will be so very welcome, ta in advance...
