    You must subscribe/pay for this.

    It was free before, but Micro$oft decided to make more money with it.

    If you pay the $19.95 yearly subscription you just need to set incoming mail server to pop3.live.com and outgoing to smtp.live.com:25. If you have a free hotmail account then a forwarder is your only option, check out izymail. Just google it.

    I can't get it to work..!! I've payed for live account, but still i can't get it to work with the settings you have given?

    Incoming mail server:
    Host: pop3.live.com
    Username: mymail@hotmail.com
    Password: mypass

    Outgoing mail server:
    Host: smtp.live.com:25
    Username: mymail@hotmail.com
    Password: mypass

    I only end up with the messages " can't connect with SSL, try without?"

    What am I doing wrong?

    exactly what you did (or suppose to do) with your gmail (if have one) to make it work with your iphone
    just log on to your hotmail through your computer and enable stuff

    personaly, I haven't tried it myself but I faced that same problem when I first tried to configure my gmail account on my iPhone

    This is what I use: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.p...%2Bon%2Biphone

    It isn't exactly hotmail on the iPhone because it just uses Gmail to retrieve forwarded messages from your hotmail. The good thing about it is that you take advantage of Gmail's Spam filtering. This is nothing like IMAP however so you are out of luck in that sense.

    Hope it helps...

    Free hotmail accounts are not pop3 they're using some kind of http mail servers. Instead you can use another service to map that http mail server to the pop3.
    I use Izymail for my hotmail account. It works perfectly and the good thing is that it's free.
    here is the tutorial: http://email.about.com/od/iphonemail...et_hotmail.htm

    Free??? They claim otherwise, after 20-day trial period:

    When you are satisfied with IzyMail's operation, you can upgrade your registration to a permanent subscription for a very moderate fee of $1.49/mo*.
