Does anybody know how to set a hotmail account on the Droid.
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.
So it seems that you cant use the email icon and ya stuck to going through the browser.
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
Delete from Server: When removed from inbox
SMTP Server: smtp.live.com (Port: 25)
Outgoing Uses SSL: On
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.
I've tried... with no success.
IMAP is not available to use with Hotmail at the moment.

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.
Nice find. I dont use my hotmail account much, but I might set it up on the droid now!
I just went into the settings in my hotmail account and forwarded all my mail from there to my gmail account.
Use the setting up hotmail link above, works perfect, thanks guys.
Good find, thanks guys.
