    I just got the Moment the other day, and one of the first things I did was to try and set-up my 2 hotmail accounts. After I put in my address and password it said "checking incoming server settings", after a few seconds it then told me "setup could not finish" and that it was "unable to open connection to server". I have no idea why this is, and I've been searching the internet since, but I am unable to find a solution. Does anyone know why this is and how to fix it. I'm using the basic Email app that came with it, but I've heard things about downloading a different Email app. I also have a task killer installed but I have set-up it to ignore the Email app.

    If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    First, get k-9 app from the market.

    Outgoing server = smtp.live.com
    security = TLS
    Port = 587
    Require signin = check
    Authentication = PLAIN

    Incoming server = pop3.live.com
    Security type = SSL
    Port = 995

    Then just get your name and password stuff and you should be set.:) Also, make sure you run through all of the options so you get all the reminders and syncing times set the way that you want them.

    Good luck.

    Another solution fixed with an outside app. Haha. =]
    Thank you very much, set-up went through without a hitch.
