    Hi,

    I'm new to Windows 8, Surface Pro 2 and this forum.

    Sometimes it takes quite a while 5/10 minutes for an email to come through on my Surface Pro 2 where my Win Phone 8 Lumia 920 has already received it.

    If I manually try and sync my emails I get the 'Synchronising' message in the top right hand corner followed by 'xxxxxxxx@hotmail.co.uk is unavailable'

    I also get the same messages when trying to manually sync my calendar.

    This happens every time I try to manually sync. Is there something wrong?

    Thanks

    But on my Surface Pro email syncs are within seconds. Not sure about the calendar.

    Welcome to the forum

    The Hotmail site is being discontinued and there have been sporadic issues with it. You can still use the Hotmail E-Mail address but you should port it over to Outlook.com.
