    01 - Open DROID Browser

    02 - Type www. hotmail. com in URL box

    03 - Type In Username/Password

    04 - DONE!

    Note: Adroid 2.0 doesn't appear to support hotmail accounts in the same manner as it does gmail.

    You should be able to set up hotmail accounts within the mail client just the same as you do yahoo accounts.
    Can only be done through POP3 at least that I know of or could find. (I think there is an IMAP setting but couldn't find it)

    The following are the options to set that up:

    Pop3 Server: pop3.live.com (Port: 995)
    Incoming Uses SSL: On
    Authentication: Password
    Delete from Server: When removed from inbox
    SMTP Server: smtp.live.com (Port: 25)
    Outgoing Uses SSL: On
    Authentication: Password

    While I did get the POP3 server configured and it worked, I could not input the SMTP server, it kept telling me failed to connect to server, so if someone can figure this out, that would be great.
    Resistance is futile.

    I've tried... with no success.

    That's what i figured, is why i posted the POP3 account stuff. This was all listed on microsofts site as what to put in there. The POP3 info goes in great and connects, the SMTP does not.

    Got both POP3 and SMTP to work. It is not SSL listed on Microsoft site, it is TLS.

    I just went into the settings in my hotmail account and forwarded all my mail from there to my gmail account.
