    I dont know what mail client you are using, one way is to foward your hotmail to your gmail in gmail webface or set up which ever client you are using, hope this below helps.

    Hotmail POP3 and SMTP Settings

    For the Hero mail APP manual config is needed

    INCOMING:
    TICK BOX "REQUIRE SIGN IN"
    POP3 SERVER pop3.live.com
    PORT 995
    SECURITY SSL (always)
    USERNAME full email including the " @hotmail.co.uk "
    PASSWORD password

    OUTGOING:
    TICK BOX "REQUIRE SIGN IN"
    SMTP SERVER smtp.live.com
    PORT 25
    SECURITY TLS (always)
    USERNAME full email including the " @hotmail.co.uk "
    PASSWORD password

    Works perfect for me on all Android handsets I've had.

    Thanks for info, I am with orange UK and can now send Hotmail using my Hero.
    I still cannot seem to get it to receive mail and notify reliably though. Have tried setting to notify every 1 minute.
    The notification works fine for my Google mail account.
    Where in the 'incoming settings' screen how do I set 'requires sign in' ? I can not find this, I can only find this option in the outgoing settings screen.
    Also when I go to incoming server settings, then hit 'next', I get a message 'cannot connect to server, (-Err login allowed only every 15 minutes)'
    I am using K9 mail.

    many thanks

    Gary

    Ensure you set up the outgoing correctly. They work for me

    Try changing the outgoing server from port 25 to port 587. It *may* be that Orange are blocking outgoing connections to smtp servers on port 25. Some ISPs do it for "security" reasons, though most then automagically route through their own smtp servers.

    It's worth a try.
