    Can I retrieve my Hotmail email on my iPhone?

    • Answer
    • To set up Windows Live Hotmail on your iPhone, follow these steps:

       

      1. From the home screen, tap Settings > Mail > Add Account > Other > Add Mail Account


         


      1. Enter Name, Hotmail address (that's your Windows Live ID, e.g. "dan@hotmail.com") and Hotmail password

         

        Note: If you get an error message about subscribing to "Windows Live Hotmail Plus", just press "OK" to ignore it.  POP3 access is now available for free for all Windows Live Hotmail customers.


      2. Click "Save

        It should take a while to confirm and setup your account. Your account will be automatically configured at this point without further action from you.

      3. You're done! Now go to the Mail app and start downloading your Hotmail messages.

         

        Note: The first download from POP3 servers could take up to 5 minutes for the first sync.


       

      If for any reason your iPhone doesn't auto-populate the server information, you can set the server settings manually. From the home screen, tap Settings > Mail > select your Hotmail account, then enter the following:

      Incoming Mail Server
      Host Name: pop3.live.com
      User Name:
      Password:

      Outgoing Mail Server
      Host Name: smtp.live.com
      User Name:
      Password:
      User SSL: On
      Authentication: Password
      Server Port: 25

      Advanced
      Use SSL: On
      Authentication: Password
      Delete from server: When removed from inbox
      Server Port: 995
