    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.

    Motorola Droid - Setting Up Hotmail POP3 | Mobile Technology Deals and Help

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

    I bought my droid at verizon and the sales person set up all my email accounts for me including hotmail with no problems. Stop by your local verizon store, they should be able to help

    I setup my Gmail account to forward my Hotmail address to it. Now I get my Hotmail on my phone using the great Gmail capabilities of the Droid.

    No, actually. I logged in to Gmail to have Hotmail forward to it. I didn't log in to Hotmail and tell it to forward to Gmail. It does the same thing.

    But then you don't get the added Gmail interface, just the generic email interface of the Droid.
