How to Set Up Hotmail for MS Exchange On Your iPhone

Windows Live HotmailDo you want to get Exchange ActiveSync for Hotmail on your iPhone? There’s not an app for that, but there  is a way to do it manually… Now I don’t know who in the world still uses Hotmail besides my Mom but I figured this info might be useful to someone, which is why I’m posting it.

Setting up Exchange for Hotmail on your iPhone will allow you to keep your contacts, emails, and calendars wirelessly synced between your iPhone and the cloud.

According to LiveSide, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync support has not been officially launched but it does work for certain people.

How to install Hotmail via MicroSoft Exchange on the iPhone:

Step 1: On your iPhone, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > and create a  new Micorsoft Exchange account.

Step 2: Enter the following information:

Server address:
SSL: enabled
Password: password
Domain: <blank>

Step 3: Go to your and you should see your new Hotmail Exchange account.

As I said above, it doesn’t work for everyone. It didn’t work for me but it did work for a friend of mine. It’s kind of a hit or miss. The good news is that Microsoft said Hotmail will support Exchange later this year.

Let us know if it works for you.
