Guide to setting up Hotmail on your iPhone


Hotmail is conspicuous in its absence from the iPhone's account management menu.

But if you own an iPhone and a Hotmail email account, we think you'd like to know how easy it is to set up your iPhone for Hotmail.

Read, compose, draft and delete email just like you normally would in your browser, only this time on your iPhone.





How to set up Hotmail on your iPhone


Go to your Home screen and tap Settings.

Click on Add Account. You'll be presented with a plethora of email providers. Tap on Microsoft Exchange.

Enter your Hotmail email address in both username and email fields. Don't forget to add your password details too.

On the next screen add "m.hotmail.com" in the server box.

Almost done! Sync your Hotmail inbox by tapping the Sync button. This will pull all of your messages from your Hotmail account to your iPhone.
