Mobile Hotmail

Hotmail updating via the S60 e-mail client

Just a little announcement here that’s mostly of interest to phone users but may possibly be of use to some other people. Hotmail is now available to use via POP3 e-mail clients. That’s right phone lovers, you too can waste your data allowances downloading more spam than you’ll ever read.

Unfortunately most of the decent e-mail clients rely solely on setting up mail via a wizard with preset settings for their known providers and this is so new that most of those services haven’t updated yet. To manually set up your Hotmail, use these settings.

  • Username – your Hotmail e-mail address
  • Password – your password, duh
  • Pop Server –
  • Pop Port – 995
  • SSL – Yes
  • SMTP Server –
  • SMTP Port – 25 or 587
  • Authentication – Yes

While not all settings will be needed for all phones, simply entering the ones you need and connecting will allow you access to your Hotmail account.

  1. I have about 15 spam mails per day in my Hotmail account. Probably because I use this address for various registrations all over the Internet 😛

  2. My work email gets up to 100 a day, fortunately filtered out pretty well before they reach me. My Hotmail, Yahoo and GMail accounts get a grand total of maybe 2 spam a week :p

  3. I have opened it in 1997. when it was not in Microsoft`s posession and has less than 1 million users. By now, this must be one of the oldest active acounts there :happy:

  4. :sst: Skyfire. Works a charm with Hotmail and resetting the password. Why they think mobile users would never do that is beyond me. :irked:
