It seems that this is a little known fact that msn / Hotmail pop3 access can be gained using these settings.

I find that K9 Mail works better than the standard email app.

Incoming:
Username: blahdeblah@hotmail.co.uk
Password: your password
POP server: pop3.live.com
Port: 995
Security type: SSL (always)

Outgoing:
SMTP server: smtp.live.com
Port: 25 / 587
Security type: TLS (always)
Username: blahdeblah@hotmail.co.uk
Password: your password


When i first set an account up it brings back some blank mail, which i delete after that it works fine.

Regards,

not sure if this still works but back in december you could get your existing hotmail.com account linked by changing your location to Australia and using default settings.

I just set it up as an account to import from on my GMail and its working great so far. Over 10k messages imported and now I have a decent junk mail filter and can see when I get an email in a timely fashion rather than having to remember to login to hotmail every once in a while.

Thread revival! I've put in the above settings but my phone doesn't seem to want to connect with the hotmail account. Yet its accepted the settings. I go to launch the mail app, the little refresh icon spins but no emails come up (even though I know I have unread emails waiting for me). Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

I'm actually having the same problem as of late. The settings used to work fine but recently, it refuses to download my new messages. Strange stuff. Any ideas?
