Cannot configure Hotmail account on Huawei Ideos U8150

I haven't been able to set up my hotmail account. The following message appears: 'Set upcould not finish. Unable to open connection to server', whether on Wifi or 3G.

Thanks

I don't think hotmail supports POP, so you can only access it via a web browser.

I've had problems setting up a hotmail account in outlook recently.

 

Total guess but try changing the pop port to 995 instead of 110.

 

If you post the settings your trying to use one of the clever gaffers should pick up the problem.

 

P.S

Just found these which may help you.

 

"Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com (TLS enabled, port 587)

Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop3.live.com (logon using Secure Password Authentification - SPA, mail server port: 995)"

Click the yellow star under somebody's name if they helped!

Not so, Hotmail does support POP - I access it either through my email app or by logging in to windows live on my  Nokia X6

if as you say the internet on your phone is fine, you can do it via your web browser go onto www.hotmail.com and it will go onto the mobile version of hotmail
