    yesterday I purchased the new Droid 2 Global. I am trying to setup my windows live email account (its my school email) but I can not get it to work at all.

    The droid is making me set it up manually and I went back to the verizon store today and the lady said she couldn't help me at all.

    I googled my question and while there are people having the same issue, they do not have the droid 2 so I do not have the same setup as them and can't get my account to get setup.

    Anyone that can help me I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you so much!

    I personally have Gmail pull in my hotmail messages and give them their own label (but I really only use my hotmail account for junk). This is set up from your PC.

    If you want the phone to check live mail or hotmail directly (which I assume is what you are asking), JimMariner posted this write up for setting up hotmail on the Droid X. It should be pretty similar, if not identical, on the Droid 2.

    DROID X - Hotmail

    Ok I followed those directions and it says that my username/password are incorrect.
    I went back and look it the user name and retyped all the passwords and tried it again but I got the same message.

    Im not really sure why it is saying this.

    Thank you for your help.

    Setup Windows live as Microsoft Exchange

    Not sure if the droid two can do it, but my droid 1 is able to setup my hotmail as an exchange server and it works great.

    Settings:

    User: Email address of Windows Live / Hotmail
    Password: Your Password
    Domain: Blank
    Host: m.hotmail.com
    Options for SSL: Enabled/Checked

    i got this working on my phone:

    - You need to add a new account
    - select email
    - enter your email and password
    - uncheck "automatically configure account"
    - once created, under "my accounts" select your new email (hotmail) account
    - select "General Settings"
    - make sure info is correct
    - select "Incoming Server"
    - settings should be: POP mail server in drop down
    - pop3.live.com in "Server" box
    - username and password
    - then select "Advanced Settings"
    - Port should be 995
    - check "use secure connection"
    - "use secure password (TLS)" should be Auto
    - "Authentication" should be Password
    - select OK
    - Select "Outgoing Server"
    - "SMTP server" should be smtp.live.com
    - username and password
    - select "advanced settings"
    - Port should be 587
    - check "use secure connection"
    - "use secure password (TLS)" should be Always
    - "Authentication" should be Auto
    - select ok

    By doing the above you should now be able to receive your Hotmail email. it will show up under the messaging Icon.

    Just so you know, Hotmail now has mail forwarding, so in addition to having my phone check hotmail every 4 hours for mail, hotmail now pushes all inbox mail to my gmail account within a minute or 2 of receiving it, then gmail pushes it to my phone.

    So I have the Droid R2D2. It is rooted. I followed every step you guys said to setting up the e-mail. Everything works perfectly for both my student e-mail (username@email.itt-tech.edu) which is a Hotmail account, and my working e-mail (username@eib-tech.net) which is win09.midphase.com server. Everything works perfect EXCEPT outgoing..... I've tried both port settings and neither account can send e-mails, only receive..... Any suggestions?

    I'd suggest installing a Telnet client and trying to connect to ports 25 and 465 on win09.midphase.com from it just to check if connection is at all possible.

    If it indeed connects, and you get something like

    Code:
    220 win09.midphase.com ESMTP MailEnable Service, Version: 1.986-- ready at 07/19/11 22:58:09
    on port 25, it means you need to doublecheck your user name and password in the outgoing server settings.

    You could also check the system logs, I guess… Though I'm not sure if Messaging logs connection failures there.

    Thanks fire the response! Your suggestion lead me to the answer. After verifying that the connection was good with telnet, I checked the password. After knowing that the password was right, I skipped the "secure connection" step in setting up the email. Seems that it was a simple check box..... Can't make a secure connection to the outgoing server.
