Welcome to Justanswer
hello my name is Kayla
I will give you the step so that you can properly sync hotmail to your iphone
Here are the steps to complete the sync
If this is the first e-mail account you'll be setting up on your phone:Locate the mail icon on your phone's main screen.On the "Add Account" page, select "Microsoft Exchange"Although it will not say "hotmail" you can now properly sync your mail, contacts and calendars with your iPhone and use proper folders.1. After tapping "Microsoft Exchange" enter the credentials belowEmail - (Your Email address)Domain - Leave this blankUsername - (Enter your Email address)Password XXXXX (Enter your Email address password)Description - (Optional)2. Click The Blue "Next" button in the top right3. The server box will pop up enter "m.hotmail.com"4. After it has "verified" your account select if you want Calendar and Contact sync on5. Tap "save" and you are done!You will have noticed that your hotmail also brings your IMAP folders which didn't work in the old way of syncing hotnail. To see your hotmail contacts on your iphone or all your contacts tap "Groups" in the top left corner of your contacts.Here is a link with pictures: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft/sync-iphone-hotmail-emails-contacts-calendars-using-activesync-push/
There is a link also that you can go to for pictures to help you with the process
I followed the steps and I am now going to test it. Will be right back
Alright just let me know
It didn't delete the email
This is a known problem with hotmail and the iphone
I use to have it sync what can I do?
You need to restart the iphone
you will want to sign out of hotmail as well
Then see if this makes a difference
I will be right here just let me know when you are done
still not working. can I use another e mail account so that I can forward the hotmail messages to?
yeah you can have many email accounts on the iphone
All the others have no problems they work perfect it is only hotmail that has troubles
it is because of the servers they use
so if I use hotmail and other people e mail with my hotmail.com address how do I do it?
Are you wanting to import your infomartion from hotmail to another email address right
no I just want to delete messages on my iphone and know that they will be deleted automatically on my computer
Yeah i understand that but the iphone has a lot of problems with this and it doesnt also work
yes I guess I want the information to go to another account automatically
Alright do you know what email account your would want to go to
i mean yahoo, gmail etc
they have different instructions for each one
gmail is the best for the iphone
II have a mobilme acct
I can also set up a g mail acct
I would recommend that
I would first sign up for an account and I will post the instruction on how to forward your information from hotmail to gmail
once you have the gmail account then follow the steps i provide
that would be good, When I set up a g mail acct do I just choose an address?
yes you can choose whatever you want
I dont need to know it either that is your personal information
Go to the Accounts tab from Gmail's settings page and click on "Add a mail account you own". Type the Hotmail address and use the following settings:Username: the complete email addressPassword: your Hotmail passwordPOP Server: pop3.live.comPort: 995Enable all the four subsequent options (the only option that's required is "Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail").
Since the mail fetcher emulates a standard mail client that supports POP, it will check for new messages periodically. You also have the option to add the Hotmail address as a custom "From" address so you no longer have to compose messages in Hotmail
I will try to do this now. Will you still wait?
Yes i will be here
i am going to switch to question and answer so it doesnt time out okay
just go to your justanswer account to my questions and reply and i will see your message
I will help until this issue is resolved
am i to do this on my computer/ I don't know where the accounts tab is on my phone
no do this on your computer
