How to setup Hotmail/Windows Live Email on your iPhone

Hey all!

About a week ago Microsoft finally rolled out the support for Hotmail/Windows Live emails so that they can be synced by the Mail app on your iPhone or iPhone 3G.

I have received a few emails with questions and problems, and so today I will post a brief step by step instruction on how to get Hotmail/Windows Live Mail working on your iPhone.

How to set-up Hotmail/Windows Live Email Accounts on iPhone

1.) Go to Settings. Tap on Mail, Contacts, and Calendar. Then under the Accounts heading, tap Add Account…. Then tap Other.

2.) Under Name, enter your Name. Under Address, enter your Hotmail or Windows Live Email address. Example: your_email@hotmail.com

3.) Under Password, enter your email address password corresponding to the email address you just provided.

4.) Under Description, type a description. Example: My Hotmail Email. Then tap Save. A message will appear regarding Windows Live Plus. By-pass it by tapping Next in the top right corner of the iPhone.

5.) Under the Accounts heading, tap the email account you just created

6.) Under the Outgoing Mail Server heading, tap SMTP. Under the Primary Server heading, tap smtp.live.com

7.) Ensure Server in On. Ensure Use SSL is On. Ensure Authentication is Password. Ensure Server Port is 587 (or Port 25, apparently both work).

8.) Now tap SMTP in the top left corner of the iPhone screen. Then tap the top left corner of the iPhone screen again to return to the previous menu. Then tap Advanced.

9.) Under the Incoming Settings heading, ensure Use SSL is On. Ensure Authentication is Password. Ensure Server Port is 995.

10.) Tap the top left corner of your iPhone screen three times to return to the previous menu. Then click the home button.

And that should do it. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes in the comments below.

As always, if you have any specific comments or questions that you want addressed personally, drop me a line at: x1zero [at] iphoneincanada.ca.

Enjoy!

    I tested it a few days ago. For me, I was only able to check my hotmail inbox and nothing else. I hope they changed this.

    I’d try this… The thing is I have like 500 emails in my inbox… Are they all going to be loaded and will they be red with the number of emails I have to check them out before they go away?

    I want to add my hotmail account but I don’t want them all to look unread.

    Very nice! Thanks for the tip. It’s about time. Too bad I’ve pretty much switched everything over to my Gmail cuz of my iPhone. Took Microsoft a little bit too long. Their loss =P.

    I’m glad for this but removed it as quickly as I set it up.
    I’d much rather check it manually via Safari — Same problem here as Brian, loads 50 emails, 49 “unread”. Even after I delete 5 or so, another 5 load from my list as Unread. Just annoying. Hopefully they’ll fix this and have it set up properly in future. *shakes fist at Microsoft*

    This is nice feature that is welcomed.

    But

    You can set up a gmail account for free
    Then log into your hotmail and under settings or options you can have all your incoming email forwarded to your gmail account.
    So now you have email in your hotmail, and then a new copy will be forwarded to your gmail on the iphone.

    Thanx so much X1Zero…..I was really excited to read this post & started following your excellent instructions…..Imagine my surprise when all I had to do was enter my email address and password and it was all set up; without all the extra steps!
    I quickly realized that the reason why this must’ve worked is because I had an app from the AppStore called ‘MBoxMail’. This app put Hotmail on my Springboard and worked well!
    So, I deleted the ‘MBoxMail App’, & went back to my Hotmail account in settings. Everything was in place still, even after doing a reset/re-start!
    Soooo, just wanted to pass along this tip for people who may have had this app because it sure saved me all the steps!
    Thanx again, once more iPhoneFan! What would we do without u?

    Worked great. Although, all the steps you gave were default on my iPhone. I didn’t have to change anything. Now I don’t have to use the m-box app anymore, to get my Hotmail.

    Thanks.

    Just did this and it worked but can’t send any e-mails, can only recieve. Anyone else have this issue? Kinda usless to be able to check messages but can’t reply to them. Keep getting message that “sender e-mail is invalid”. Just curious before I go and switch to Gmail or something.

    hmm…I’m getting lost after clicking “Next” to Bypass the msg about Hotmail. My iPhone just brings a pop up saying “This email service does not work with the iPhone” and takes me to the Account details page asking for a valid incoming and outgoing server names + usernames and passwords. and i have no choice but to cancel
    How do i get it show up under accounts?
    Could it be because im still running firmware version 2.1?

    Could be two things maybe.
    1.) it has been found that not all email accounts have the functionality yet

    2.) I would update your iPhone to 2.2 and then try.

    if i set this up in the mail app, along with my existing gmail account, does it give me an option upon starting mail which mailbox i want to go into, and then be able to write an email from within that account and ahve it shown with “from” from that specific account? or will the email from my gmail and hotmail be merged into my mail app if i set up this along with my gmail one already set up?

  • X1Zero

    Zank,

    Yes, when you set up the hotmail, you will have additional mail accounts in the mail app listed. So you will have your existing Gmail account and below that the hotmail account.

    To send an email from a specific email account, you tap and enter the account. So, tap “Mail”, then “Gmail” and then compose a message. That way, your “sent from” will be from Gmail. Same process for the hotmail account.

    Any tips on how to access the Windows Live contacts through the iPhone contacts icon? Or even how to populate the contacts list on the iPhone — perhaps through a .csv file export from Windows Live Mail and uploaded through iTunes? Not sure if that has been done. I really need my contacts!!!!!

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca iphoneincanada

    You could import your Windows Live contacts into Windows Address Book on
    your PC, then sync WAB within iTunes. That should have all your Windows Live
    contacts on the iPhone.

    No matter how many times I try to follow the instructions again, it was not successful at all. It keeps prompting “The username or passowrd for “SMTP:XXX@hotmail.com@smtp.live.com” is incorrect for sending out mail. Please tell me how to resolve this…thanks!!

  • navysealer

    if your e-mail address is for canadians and is a @live.ca address shouldn't the pop3 and smtp addresses be live.ca as well instead of live.com?

    I am able to see my hotmail emails…but cant respond to them via the iphone. I get a message that the sender address was invalid. What do I need to do to correct this? Thanks

  • Mitsiii

    Hi there,

    This was originally the only set of decent instructions I could find for setting up Windows Live email on my iPhone so thanks!! However, I have never been able to send emails – I get various error messages like:

    Cannot send mail – The sender address was invalid (100% positive it is always correct) or something about the smtp.live.com being incorrect or the password not being right. I have tried with and without the username and password in the outgoing mail settings to no avail. Have also checked my settings against someone who has a Hotmail account set up on their iPhone although they have an older version of iPhone software and appears to be slightly different the settings are the same…

    Desperately hoping someone can help?

  • Ang

    Would you know how to get this working for live.ca accounts? I see others have the same problem but I don't think anyone has really laid out if this can be set out or not and if so, how… I've tried but the process for live.com accounts doesn't work. Thought you might know being a rogers tech.

  • jess

    hmmm, i've tried all of the above and i still keep getting the same original error message….. finding this rather frustrating….

  • confused

    My phone requests a Host Name, User Name, and Password under Incoming mail server and the same under outgoing mail server and it also wants you to choose between IMAP and POP.

  • Glen

    I get a Cannot Send Mail message that says the sender address was invalid. I have check and the email is correct. It has done this with several emails. I have checked all of the setting and they are as required. I am using port 587 but have also used 25.

  • Ray

    before i couldn't get it to work, but now suddenly it works, i don't know if i did something different or what. but you put pop3.live.com for the incoming server and your username and password, then for outgoing you pu smtp.live.com but do not enter your username or password. i hope this helps (:

    I was just trying to send an email for the first time on the iPhone just now and it gave me the same (or similar) error message. What I did was went to the page as stated in the of step 6 and ensure your email is in the User Name box and your Password is in the box below it. As soon as I put that in, my outbox'd email sent immediately! Hope that works.

  • Omar

    this works great!

  • shounak deshpande

    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,
    shounak deshpande
