Hey guys just started testing an email addy @outlook.com
Question: How do I set it up with my nexus 7? I read it uses exchange server. So I go to E-mail enter in my username/pw and it takes me to the account setup screen. And when I click next again it keeps saying "Username or password incorrect."

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Try to set it up as an Exchange account with the following settings;

Domain\Username: [email protected]
Password: ********
Server: snt-m.hotmail.com

This worked for me, however I migrated my account from hotmail to outlook, so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

This is a very helpful post. I've been trying to figure out how to incorporate my outlook.com account into my nexus 7. This post solved my dilemma.

for anyone else struggling, as the link says , go to Advanced settings and...
"Change the Server Address from m.hotmail.com to blu-m.hotmail.com, dub-m.hotmail.com, stn.hotmail.com, bay-m.hotmail.com or snt-m.hotmail.com"

TIP: If you want to know which server to use (as it takes a couple of minutes for each to fail), log into your hotmail webmail in a browser and once you are in your inbox, look at the URL in the address bar.

If it looks like "https://snt123.mail.live.com/default.aspx?rru=inbox" then use snt-m.hotmail.com
If it looks like "https://blu123.mail.live.com/default.aspx?rru=inbox" then use blu-m.hotmail.com
etc etc
