    hi people,

    i was wondering how to get a notification on your SGS when you receive an email in your hotmail account. it does give a signal and a notification in the status bar when i receive email of my gmail account but not with hotmail.
    i checked synchronisation -> add new account and saw something like microsoft exchange activesync.
    first page asks me for an email account and password. i fill in my hotmail email and password.
    next pages says. domain: username, password and exhange server.

    on the domain its the part in front of the @ of my hotmail email
    password is filled in
    exchange-server is hotmail.com

    then it says that instalation can't be completed because it can't connect with the server.

    am i doing it the right way or you need to make some kind of microsoft exchange account?

    if there is such a threat then i'm sorry but could you give me the link then ? :)

    Here are the settings for Hotmail:
    Open the Mail client (no gmail).
    Type in your Hotmail full email, and your password, Click on Manual setup
    Select Exchange account
    For the domain: \full email address for example "\myname@hotmail.com"
    Password: your password
    Exchange Server: m.hotmail.com
    check both Use secure connection (SSL) and Accept all SSL certificates.
    Click Next and follow the on screen prompts.
