    Hi there, I'm having problems syncing my hotmail into the native HTC app. I can't receive any emails but I can send emails.

    I'm using:

    POP
    name@email.com
    name@email.com
    password
    pop3.live.com
    SSL
    995
    -----------
    name@email.com
    password
    smtp.live.com
    TLS
    587

    Am I doing anything wrong? I don't really want to forward all my hotmail emails to my gmail account.

    Hi, change ur outgoing details to 25, and choose ssl, and untick the box if you get one, then it should work, if this still does not work download k9 email from marketplace, that will sort it out for you,

    To be honest, I'm a bit reluctant to divulge my Hotmail account details to my HTC Desire at the moment, until I've done a bit of research on the security issues. My Hotmail is for my work and life line and scared it will be compromised, unless someone knows otherwise, about this.

    Everything is correct, but I don't see that you selected 'Login required' on the SMTP side of things. And don't forget the default is last 3 days of email, but you can change it in the Account Settings/Send & Receive/Download Options to all or something else.
