Filed in iPhone | mac Leave a comment

apple just made hotmail on iphone even easier with iPhone OS 3.0!
have added the print screen and instructions on how to add.

Go to “Settings”, “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”,

Select “Add Account…” under Mail,

Select “Other”,

Choose “Add Mail Account”,

Enter your account info, note that address to be your full @hotmail.com or @live.com address, as shown,
click on “Save” and the account will automatically be configure, setup and verified.

Once verified, you shall see the following information under your Hotmail account settings.

and you are good to go!, sadly, hotmail only have support for POP, lagging IMAP, meaning no synchronization. well, pretty microsoft.

then for those who wants to setup Hotmail on Apple Mail, i assume you are a proficient enough user to no need print screens, the information are as follows:
Incoming Server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
username: yourusername@hotmail.com OR yourusername@live.com
Outgoing Server (SMTP Server): smtp.live.com (Port 25)
Make sure SSL is checked, your outgoing port is 25 and authentication is required.

If anyone need a step by step with print screen, post in comments and i will add it in.
