    Any way to place Hotmail icon directly on homescreen?

    I have the messaging icon, which I click into and then have to click on my Hotmail account, but there is nothing else under "messaging" that I ever use. Is it possible to cut out the middle man and directly place my hotmail account onto the homescreen?

    Have you tried long press and selecting shortcut from the popup box? I don't use the Universal Inbox or Messaging app, so I am not sure if Hotmail would show up under here or not...
    Failure isn't falling down, failure is staying down.

    I use Hotmail in addition to GMail and the icon (long-pressed) does appear on my homescreen as "Email", next to the GMail icon and that is good enough for me. You could put probably use an app like Folder Organizer to create a folder for both and assign a Hotmail jpg as the icon. I do that with my bookmarks. You will need an app like Astro File Organizer to save and then move the jpg's to a location you can access. To rename existing icons, I believe you need Launcher Pro.

    If your Hotmail acct is included in the universal inbox and its set as the default email app try using the regular email shortcut. Another option may be to use bettercut (available in the market) to create a shortcut to hotmail. It will also allow you to assign whatever pic you want as the icon.
