    I have a Windows live mail account (through my windows website)..it is NOT hotmail. How do I get my email on my Droid?? When trying to set it up, I chose POP Protocal (which I do not even know if this is correct..how do I find out what protocal I should be using?), I chose SSL Security because that is what is says on my mail login screen at the bottom. But Droid tells me this warning " CAnnot connect to the mail server to verify your account info. Your server is not responding." Maybe my popserver is wrong? I am not sure what I should be using there, either. This mail account is thru my website, which I mentioned, so the pop server is the name of my website....
    Please help!!!

    First of all welcome to the forum, LoriB! This is the way I set up Hotmail, so try it and use your Windows Live address instead. Seems as though it should work... it's worth a shot anyway.

    EMAIL SETUP for POP3 ACCOUNTS: Hotmail POP3 (non-root solution)
    1. From the home screen, pull up the applications tab (at the bottom of the screen)
    2. Touch Mail
    3. Touch Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    4. In the incoming server settings, enter the details as follows:
    Username: XXXX@hotmail.com (enter your complete hotmail address)
    Password: enter your hotmail password
    POP3 server: pop3.live.com
    Port: 995
    Security type: SSL
    5. Touch Next to continue to SMTP Server Settings and enter the details as follows:
    SMTP server: smtp.live.com
    Port: 587
    Security type: TLS (and check mark “Require sign-in”)
    Username: XXXX@hotmail.com (enter your complete hotmail address again)
    Password: enter your hotmail password again
    6. Touch Next
    7. Fill out your personal information (Name etc.)
    (If you are having problems be sure that WiFi is turned OFF then try again
    )

    :welcome:

    Setting up specialty windows live email

    So I'm a student at Devry University and want to check my student email on my droid. Its provided by Windows Live...

    So my email is XxxxxxxXxxxx@my.devry.edu

    (looks just like windows live mail and you have to log into it the same way)


    I tried the stuff listed above but maybe I'm putting down the wrong pop3 address?

    This information is incorrect for DeVry e-mail setup.. Please use the information in the post above as it has been tested and confirmed for DeVry University e-mail setup.
