    It should pick up the settings automatically when you specify your hotmail address. If not the details are:

    • Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop3.live.com

    • Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com

      For contacts, go to 'People' then click the Menu button and select 'View', you can select what contacts you wish to see.

    cheers, got the email to work now, thanks alot,
    about the contacts, yes i get it how i want if clicking the people button, but if i click the phone button where it displays latest calls, then you scroll down for your contacts its got all the facebook etc ones in there, is it possible to access your contacts through the "phone" button but without seeing all the facebook basically?

    For that I think you have to go into 'Accounts & sync' in Settings and uncheck the Contacts that you dont want sync'd. Eg. If you click on the Facebook for HTC Sense, you should be able to uncheck 'Sync Contacts'. The same for a Google account.

    found where you were talking, but didnt find a uncheck for contents, only delete account?

    For all accounts that you have setup, you will see in access and sync. Now if click on each one, you will see more setting, ie what exactly you want and don't want to sync.

    I emailed HTC about this as this has happened to me aswell.

    Dear Tom

    If the Facebook contact has a phone number they will be under Phone tab, this cant be changed or removed.
    If you remove they will be there again after you synchronize with Facebook

    I'm fairly tech savvy, but for the life of me can't get my Hotmail to sync.

    It goes through all the motions. I can even send emails fine. However it just fails to display the inbox. It tells me I have 'No Mail'.

    I've been through all the settings - SSL, Pop3.live.com, username, password and port 995.

    Any suggestions?

    Just a thought, the default setting is that it brings back emails from the last 3 days, if you dont have any less than 3 days old then none will show. Just trying to narrow down your problem.

    Thanks for the reply, I thought the same myself.

    It's obviously a problem with the incoming as I can send emails, but even when people reply to the messages I've sent from the Desire they won't show up (but are sat in my inbox next time I log on from a PC)

    What kind of hotmail address do you have? hotmail.com or hotmail.co.uk?

    it's a hotmail.com

    In that case, don't do it manually. Just create a new other account, enter your email and password, and it will accept it.

    The above manual is only for addresses ending in co.uk.

    I only realised the other day there is an option to delete mail from server when you delete mail on your phone which is very handy!

    I tried to add my hotmail.com like this but still no email was recieved. Only email I recieved was an expired newsletter. Any other ideas why I can't recieve emails?

    Seems strange because i can recieve email when I click the "all" under download options but then I still don't recieve any recent emails just the old emails so that must mean I have the correct configuration so how come I can't recieve any recent mail? I am using hotmail.com and vodaphone pay and go.

    I have had exactly the same problem as Mr Phone from day one. Never been able to find any answers :S

    Im thinking it may be a WiFi problem, do u get the same problem on 3g? I have forwarded my hotmail to gmail as a workaround for now.

    Fixed the problem today finally! Read someone say that changing the settings to dowload 'All' mail, not just the 'Last 3 days' for example. Took forever to do it, then changed the setting back to last 3 days and it's working fine. Give it a go :)

    Thanks Fergie, I have over 1000 mails to download but its worth a shot.

    Well it downloads the mail up to 7/17/09 then I receive nothing under 'All' mail. I tried changing back to 3 days after that but just receive the expired newsletter again.. all very strange.

    Hmmm.. seems the phone is reading the oldest mail as the most recent, hence the expired newsletter (the first email). It downloads to about 600 mail on 'all' then gives up. A not so smart 'smartphone' it seems.

    Ok, so I deleted some of the old email, then rebooted, and bingo!

    I now have working hotmail.. fingers crossed!
