Set up Windows Live Hotmail in iPhone Mail
Authored by: shounak on Aug 10, '10 07:41:55AM

Hey folks.

Here's a working solution I found.

Simply go to settings on your iphone

Go to settings, create a new mail account.

Enter your basic information
NAME
USER NAME xyz@live.ca or live.com
YOUR PASSOWRD *******
Description xyz account

Now in the next page,

POP account information
NAME aosindason
Address xyz@live.ca or xyz@ live.com
Description aosidnoasin

HOST NAME(Incoming mail server) POP3.LIVE.COM
USERNAME xyz@live.ca or xyz@live.com {specify the email! wont work with just the username!)
PASSWORD *****

Out going mail server is SMTP.live.com
No need to add username and password here!


save it- it will ask you "wana proceed without ssl?" SAy no, then save , save again.

Then go to outgoing mail server>primary server> SSL ON check port , it must be 587>DONE

Then go to advanced >incoming settings> SSL ON> server port 995

That's it!-
Your are done!


Remember key things,
SSL must be on for both servers, ports as specified above for all live.com and live.ca accounts. It must work!

Cheers,
