Exclamation Problems programming hotmail to MAGIC (Rogers)

So for some reason after updating to SENSE UI for the Magic, I've had difficulties programming my hotmail into my phone. I'm not sure if its due to the firmware of if i'm simply doing something wrong. Here are my configuration settings (I'm using POP3):

Incoming Settings
Email address:
xyxyxy@hotmail.com

Username:
xyxyxy@hotmail.com

Password:
********* (i'm 100% sure i inputed it in correctly)

POP Server:
pop3.live.com

Security Type:
SSL

Server Port:
995

Outgoing Server Settings:
[checked] Login Required

Username:
xyxyxy@hotmail.com

Password:
*******

SMTP Server:
smtp.live.com

Security Type:
TLS

Server Port:
587

Does anyone know why it might not be working? Thanks!!

Hi. The Hotmail is working fine for me on my Magic with 911/Sense upgrade. The only difference is in the SMTP configuration. I'm using port 25 with TLS. Give it a try.

Still doesn't work. It tells me that I can't connect to the server. I tried doing it on a different internet connection at a friend's place and even without using WiFi and still no luck.

Even if i continue the process, it gives me 2 emails which say "Expired Email" from Windows Live which I have no clue where its from

Is it only Hotmail that doesn't work? I mean do you have any other POP3 email address that you can test with?
Another suggestion is try to set up a new Hotmail address and try with it.

I have 3 different POP3 email addresses plus Exchange ActiveSync all working fine.

That's the exact same settings that I use and it works great for me. Did you manage to get through the setup of the account but are not getting your emails?

Maybe its a DNS issue. Try using the ip address for smtp.live.com directly. It's 65.55.172.254

In case you want to try the POP server as well, it's 65.55.39.135

do you have wifi on? If so, turn it off and use your data connection, it will work. Once it's set-up, your email will work fine with wifi, but for whatever reason the inital setup has to be through your data connection, not on wifi.
