Hotmail is making it easier for you to stay up-to-date and be productive on your phone. Starting today, you can get your email, calendar, and contacts pushed automatically to your phone using Exchange ActiveSync (EAS). EAS keeps everything in sync between your phone and Hotmail, so whatever you do on your phone, like delete an email, add an appointment, or update one of your contacts with a new number, will also be reflected on the web, and vice-versa. If you use an email client on your PC that already syncs with Hotmail, like Outlook with the Outlook Connector or Windows Live Mail, what you do on your phone will show up there as well, delivering a seamless experience for managing your stuff between your PC email client, your browser, and your phone.
You can follow these steps to setup Hotmail using Exchange ActiveSync on your iPhone ,
Launch the Settings App. Under Settings, tap on “Mail, Contacts, Calendar”.
Then tap on “Add Account”.
Tap on “Microsoft Exchange” to configure Hotmail ActiveSync.
. Leave Domain blank. Enter your password. In the Description field, enter a name, e.g Hotmail.
Then tap on the Next button.
After the details entered above are successfully verified. You will get another screen where you need to enter m.hotmail.com for the Server name. Then tap on the Next button.
If the verification is successful, you will see this screen. Select the data (Mail, Contacts, Calendar) to sync and then tap on Save.
That’s it, you’re all set for push email, calendar and contacts for your Hotmail account.
As always, let us know how it goes.
