    Hi everyone - I recently got my moto droid phone. Anyone know how to get windows live email updates and notifications? I tried adding the pop and smtp addresses listed in this website elsewhere but to no avail. Any help is greatly appreciated.
    thx.

    I set mine up and have had no problems what so ever. I entered my name and password and that's all that i was required to do.

    These settings work fine for me, my SMTP server port works on 587 not 25 but try both and see which works for you
    • POP (incoming) server: pop3.live.com
    • POP port: 995
    • POP SSL required: yes
    • POP user name: your complete Windows Live Hotmail address (including "@hotmail.com", "@live.com", etc.)
    • POP password: your Windows Live Hotmail password
    • SMTP (outgoing) server: smtp.live.com
    • SMTP port: 25
      • If you run into problems sending mail, try "587" for the SMTP port instead.
    • SMTP SSL required: yes
    • SMTP authentication: yes
    • SMTP user name: your full Windows Live Hotmail email address
    • SMTP password: your Windows Live Hotmail password

    Yes, you do need to be able to enable SMTP authentication.

    However, you can also set up your account with ActiveSync.

    I agree! MailDroid is a really good and easy to use app! I have tried many, but couldn't find one that worked correctly. I love MailDroid. Use it for my two hotmail accounts on my Samsung Galaxy Prevail.

    My only problem now is finding a way to sync my Hotmail calendar events. I really need this, because I use Windows Live Mail and prefer the Hotmail calendars.

    I'd like to have a separate calendar app to do this, but so far the ones I've downloaded are not enabling Hotmail calendar. When I went to check my settings, for some reason my Samsung Galaxy Prevail is only allowing google accounts to be added (in the "Settings" > "Accounts & Sync" )

    Anybody have an idea how to get my Hotmail calendar events to my Droid?

    I have posted the following response in reply to a couple of similar queries on different threads. Hope that if it helps then anyone searching for similar query will find it,
    I use Gemini calendar on my S3. When I go into settings on it, there is an option to set which calendar you use, this includes Hotmail. I don't use the Hotmail calendar myself so cant confirm if it syncs everything for you, but may be worth a try. Good luck.

    OK, got the chance to test it and it seems to work OK. I went into Gemini calendar and then in preferences when asked for what calendar to use, I deselected my google calendar and chose Hotmail. Went into Hotmail calendar on my pc. added an entry and a few minutes later it appeared on the calendar on my S3 homescreen. It did take a few minutes whereas google entries appear a lot quicker, but it worked. One thing to add though and I noticed this difference when updating my wifes galaxy note the other day. When I went into her account settings on the note, it showed Hotmail as account. When I go into accounts on my S3 it shows as Microsoft exchange active sync, so this might have something to do with it. The link here How do I Set Up Microsoft
