Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.
Hotmail has been upgraded to outlook by default however you can open the link below and enter the full hotmail address and password ***** will login successfully however the email screen you will see as outlook.com on the top left. let me know if you have any question.
You will have to remove the emails already assigned or configured from the iphone and ipad and you will have to restart both the devices and after that you can add new email account and add the existing hotmail account.
i mean once you remove the email from the phone and ipad email list restart the phone and then select add new email and enter the hotmail username and password.
no there should not be a problem because hotmail is by default converted to outlook by Microsoft from there server itself.
its requested from the exchange server.
If you want you can create a new email on outlook.com so it will be as per your user***@******.*** and you can login to www.outlook.com website.
