Hotmail POP3 Support For iPhone Now Available In Select Countries

hotmailWindows Live Hotmail now supports POP3 in a few select countries including United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands.

According to SoftPedia:

First off, the POP server needs to be (port 995), while the SMTP server is (port 25). Users will have to provide their full Windows Live ID (, and then the password that they have associated with the account. They have to bear in mind the fact that the Windows Live Hotmail POP3 service must use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) both with the POP and SMTP connection, as well as take advantage of SMTP authentication. Thus, users will have to specify that POP SSL and Authentication are indeed required, with the same being valid for TLS/SSL.

Sorry folks. It’s not available in the US yet! If you’re using Hotmail in the US and want to set it up on your iPhone, read my tutorial called How To Set Up Hotmail On The iPhone or check out the mBoxMail app.
