Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Unfortunately, you cannot automatically have mail forwarded through your Hotmail email address.
How do I forward my HotMail email to a different address that I will then be able to view on my BlackBerry?

It's often handy to automatically forward email received on one account to another, often your Hotmail account, and often to another device.
Unfortunately the news isn't terribly good. But there are some alternatives.
To the best of my knowledge, Hotmail does not support forwarding. It supports a number of options on incoming email, but forwarding does not appear to be on the list.
Same story for Yahoo mail, though forwarding is touted as a feature in their premium product.
And finally, Google's new entry into the free email space, GMail, recently introduced forwarding, so using a GMail account instead of Hotmail would be one approach to resolving this issue.
One other approach, if your device supports it, is to simply use the web interface for Hotmail (or Yahoo) in your wireless device. I'm not terribly familiar with BlackBerry, but I know, for example, that my Treo, which is Palm powered, has a web browser and supports accessing Hotmail and presumably Yahoo Mail.
