How to Set Up Hotmail on an iPhone

For a long time, it was very difficult for iPhone users to access Hotmail. They were forced to carry out a complex sequence of actions that would often go awry, especially for the techno-novice. However, once Microsoft enabled Exchange ActiveSync for Hotmail, the process became quite simple and quick.

Step

Turn on your iPhone. Under “Settings, select “Mail,” then “Mail, Contacts, Calendars.” Click on “Microsoft Exchange” to create a new account.

Step

Enter your Hotmail address in the “Email” and “Username” entries, and your Hotmail password under “Password.” Leave “Domain” empty and click “Next.” Your account will be verified.

Step

Enter “m.hotmail.com” in the “Server” entry. Click “OK.”

Step

Choose the features you want to use in your Hotmail account, such as “Email” or “Calendar,” and click “Next.”
