    Hi all,
    I am updating to include IMAP info for hotmail, the new hotmail app that Microsoft released is still not up to my standards at all, but it is a lot better, but I am now switching over to Aquamail, as I find the built in email apps are sluggish and updates on them only happen when you get some type of firmware update, that is sad. Aquamail is the only one so far to keep loading older messages, if you try it you will see, and there are many many options for just about anyone, and it works now with IMAP hotmail!!
    go to bottom for hotmail IMAP info

    Hotmail
    I found this here, I am just going to repost it
    Samsung Galaxy S - How to: Setup Hotmail Account with folders guide

    It works great from my tests so far, and has all my hotmail folders!
    I got tired of clicking on more (or show more) in every single email, so I now use Enhanced email, and I tried lots of them and Enhanced Email as of now is the best.

    The live way did not work properly or delete my emails also (from the phone when I deleted them on my computer)

    here it is

    Goodevening,

    As I have been looking for ages since i got my Galaxy S HOW to setup Hotmail accordingly so that i have access to all my sub folders I thought lets share this!

    Step by step guide how to setup Hotmail Account properly so that you will see your Subfolders too!

    1. Applications
    2. E-mail ( the standard Email)
    3. Add new account (choose others)
    4. Fill in Email Address + Password of your Hotmail account
    5. Press Manual Setup
    6. Chose Exchange Account
    7. Domain/Username = \'Youremail'@hotmail.com
    8. Password = Your Hotmail password ( Already filled in in previous steps)
    9. Exchange Server = m.hotmail.com
    10. Tick 'Use Secure Connection (SSL) '
    11. Press Next
    12 Check other sync options as your need (I left calendars unchecked as I dont use hotmail calendars)

    Done

    10/2013 I am now swithcing to AquaMail with IMAP for outlook.com now
    Good Email app I have found and tried many others including the official hotmail app, edit: EE works great but as of late it has very lacking in the updating and falling way behind the others, I like features in it but many are now lacking, hopefully they change and start to catch up, but now I am changing to aquamail.

    In settings then message settings put a check in "auto show images" to always show the images in emails, you don't have to click show anymore it just does it (like it should anyway, the way I like it)

    In settings then global settings "max upload size" I pay for my hotmail $20 a year so I choose 10MB.

    There are settings for just about everything, font size, color of each email account, ect... I dont think there is a setting left out.

    An alternate method of accessing your hotmail.

    1. In the web browser go to your hotmail account and sign in, it will automatically sign into the mobile version.

    2. At the top where it says "<<Hotmail folders > Inbox", click "Hotmail folders", your screen will then look like this (minus or plus any custom folders you have added)

    [​IMG]

    3. Save this page as a bookmark.

    4. Go to your bookmarks, long press and choose "Add Shortcut To Home" adding an icon to your home page.

    5. Move the icon to whatever screen you want.

    Benefits:
    Always signed in unless you sign out
    Access to Hotmail "Quick Views"
    Open attachments
    Access to other Windows Live options like the SkyDrive (Menu at the top right corner)
    Email search (not sure if the email client on this phone has that)

    Downsides:
    Unable to attach files
    Does not notify you of a new email

    For the life of me I cant believe there are no good hotmail apps or email apps.

    I have gave up on the built in email app, having to go to the bottom of every email to hit that button was just time wasting!!!
    Unless someone knows how to enable it all the time or move it to the top where it belongs.

    Im using the hotmail app Microsoft + seven its the best I think so far, but my built in zoom email app just works fine on the zoom, what gives with the samsung one, why did they destroy it?

    Am I missing something somewhere?

    I need to send attachments and the app that im using now is just beating me to death.
    PLEASE HELP

    I've tried to return to my 10 year old Hotmail email account. But, I simply can't, the junk mail sorting is terrible compared to Google's GMail.

    As a test today, I setup my Hotmail as Exchange. It worked fine, bar the junk.

    Thanks for posting the link...

    Do you mind sharing
    every time I think I have a good one it does not do something I need it to do or does it the long way.

    I just don't get why Samsung butchers a good thing. My Motorola email app that comes with the zoom works perfect what gives?

    I am using the built in Hotmail app and I am ok with it, except when I delete mail, it also deletes it on the server. I like to do that on my PC. I did not see a way to not have it that way?

    Hogan773 Well-Known Member

    The official Hot mail app works great for me...... I like to delete things once. Not twice.
  9. dfran1

    dfran1 Well-Known Member

    OK people here is the major problem with the official hotmail app (I pay the $20 a year hotmail and can send larger files)

    add 3 or 4 pictures and send them to someone, and repeat while the first is sending, the Official hotmail app chugs (at the very least on 3g, dont remember if it worked on 4g) and does not send or sends one email but not the other and both are in the outbox leaving you not knowing what went thru

    I use this all the time for work and need it to work reliably and the Microsoft app does not at all, I am back to the samsung app and just scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking "load more details"
    and all my folders show up right away I dont have to add them, I cant believe Microsoft screwed up their own app, thats what we get from them.

    Something else is screwy with their app I forgot what. (might be something with zooming)
    Also that one has to hit menu then hit delete , what we're they thinking

    If you set it up as an "other" email account and then select manual set up you can decide when it deletes from the server.

    ....for some reason I can't get the hotmail account to work, I set "unable to connect to servers". It's all good, the way I'm doing it now works perfect.
  11. mikeb33

    mikeb33 Well-Known Member

    That worked great! Thanks. I did have to delete the account and create a new one to do this, but it only took a minute.
  12. dfran1

    dfran1 Well-Known Member

    The problem with setting it up as a pop account is you get no folder access

    You will get the option to not delete of the server (I never want that, and it still goes into the deleted/trash anyway)
    And it does show html emails without clicking, but I need folders also so exchange server is the only way so far until imap support for me

    Hi ,
    Is it my guide in the first post? Or what other one
    Are you using??

    I am using enhanced email now it works the best out of all others hands down
    I have 3 emails set-up in it
    Hotmail
    Charter
    Icloud
    All Under enhanced email
    It does cost $10
    But it shows html without clicking show more, etc..
    I will post all my setup guides for enhanced email soon , added to my first post
    There is one little glitch with it at the moment that the developer is working on and it is you can not at the moment zoom out to fit the screen in portrait
  15. twin-k84

    twin-k84 New Member

    Yes it's the guide from your first post... I might try hotmails free app if there's no other options...
  16. dfran1

    dfran1 Well-Known Member

    When your in your inbox
    press menu
    Press folders
    choose one of your hotmail folders and remember It only shows what you select for an option below.

    while in your email (inbox, etc..)
    menu
    settings
    choose your hotmail
    scrool down to find and select "Period to sync emails"

    you will only see whats in your folders from the time frame you select here including inbox.

    Let me know it this fixes your problem.

    You did choose exchange when you set it up?

    Yes I set it up as exchange but still no luck. I have ebay folder in my hotmail account but no emails from that folder appeared on my phone (some of them are not older then a week)
  19. dfran1

    dfran1 Well-Known Member

    hit menu and refresh a few times and the folder will populate, I tried it again this morning with the app you are using and it worked for me
    Let me know.

    The problem with the official outlook email app is...
    when you send 4 or 5 pictures you took with the camera on the phone some emails go thru, some dont and the some that do go thru stay in the outbox and they went thru and others don't go thru and stay in your outbox (is normal) but you cant even resend them, and have no clue to the ones that did go thru, I had to recreate the emails using only 2 pictures to get them to work.

    Again I need this to just work, not half work (I need it for my work), so that official hotmail app is junk....

    but by all means use it if you want but this is the flaw I saw, and also going to delete emails you have to hit menu every time, what a pain...

    enhanced email works great so far (with that one minor flaw that the developer is working on), the delete button is down the bottom where it belongs.
    I should also point out the trial you can get of it does not work properly at all, but the final paid app does and I can sent 5 pictures fine in an email, with sending 3 of them at once (as soon as it takes time wise that is for the other 2 to make and send)

    Just use the regular Hotmail app you can download in the Market. It really is a solid functioning app & easy to set up.
  22. rapidsandroid

    rapidsandroid Well-Known Member

    You can have more than one hotmail account on the hotmail app. Works very well.
  23. dfran1

    dfran1 Well-Known Member

    It does not work well at all.

  24. Hogan773

    Hogan773 Well-Known Member

    I meant other NON-HOTMAIL accounts ie GMAIL, Yahoo, etc. I don't think you can use the Hotmail app as your one-stop-shop for all emails like you can on the stock email client. I may be wrong.
  25. Hogan773

    Hogan773 Well-Known Member

    Look.....your situation is a pretty specific one. Not saying it's not very important to YOU but the ability to rapid fire 5 pictures at once and then another 5 pictures 2 seconds later and you're not sure what is being sent or not........that is a very specific complaint. Are the pictures actually NOT getting through at all, or is it just that you are impatient and don't want to or can't wait a minute to get the sync on the sent folder? Maybe I'm misunderstanding your major beef with the app.

    I think the Hotmail app works much better than the stock ICS email app....the fonts on the overall screen aren't gigantic like the stock, there are nice little check boxes where you can click click click and then hit DELETE or MARK READ or MARK UNREAD all at once, it works for HMTL email viewing, and it syncs properly. Yes, I have successfully sent attached pictures from mine on multiple occasions. So to say "it does not work well at all" is mis-information to all the people on here that might be considering it as an option......
