Thank you for the question. Can you please tell me which email you are using?
via exchange setup
Was this working in the past?
Is this a corporate email server?
no just the public m.hotmail.com exchange access
Have you set up email access through Mail Settings -> "Windows Live Hotmail"?
yes the same error occurs if adds fine and then on entering the inbox gives the connection error
I assume you're able to log in to the account through hotmail.com on your PC?
yes works fine
What is the error you get when trying to add the account?
no lets me add the account fine, just when going into the inbox get the error conenction to the server failed
Interesting..I just added my Hotmail account that I don't often use to my iPhone and I can check the inbox without this problem.
Did you change any settings on the account itself recently?
Or perhaps the password?
no i can add a test account with the same settings fine, just my main hotmail account is having these issues
Sorry, I am going to opt out and allow another expert to assist. It looks like this is a somewhat common problem when using Hotmail with an iOS5 device.
It doesn't seem to have been solved by any I've seen out on forums
I have had my iphone restored and it still comes up with the message
