as I noted, I am able to do this however when I try to either createca new email address (outlook) on my iphone or ipad, with the same login info I used on the Outlook site, I get a message saying Unable to verify. Should I delete my hotmail email accoints on my mobile devices and then create new onrs using Outlook?

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.

When you say Add the existing Hotmail accounts, do you mean add (create) as Outlook?
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.

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.

But they will still be Hotmail...won't I still have the same issue?
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.

no there should not be a problem because hotmail is by default converted to outlook by Microsoft from there server itself.

But it still has to be done manually by the users? Oh ok..also, why do Ibkeep getting messages asking for my Exchange password? Never have seen it before
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.

its requested from the exchange server.

If you want you can create a new email on so it will be as per your user***@******.*** and you can login to website.
