    Just trying to justify my Chatpad purchase! :rolleyes:

    Is it possible to email people from the 360?

    I have myself signed into messenger, but i only seem to be able to chat to other people on my friends list. Can't i just enter an email address and tap away an email to them?

    Is it though?
    I sign in using my MS passport (IE Hotmail login), so you think there would be a way to integrate MS hotmail functionality without the whole web browser thing....

    maybe i'm thinking too simply.

    i never saw the point in buying the chatpad is anyone going to go on messenger while play gow or cod3 and so if your not on the 360 you might as well go on pc wich has an even better keyboard!!

    I just use a standard USB keyboard if I ever want to type much, it's a bit easier than a chat pad and more... full size keys!:D

    I would think the problem would be that MSN only needs to connect to Microsofts secure network to work as all contacts are hosted by MS themselves, to email people you would need to expose the xbox to the world wide web as users would be on various networks and therefore could leave the 360 open to virus', hackers, etc.
