Tested under Samsung galaxy, Samsung spica and HTC wildfire
Here is the configuration to set up an Hotmail account:
  • POP server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
  • POP SSL: Yes
  • Username: your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com.
  • Password: password normally used to connect to Hotmail or Windows Live account
  • SMTP server: smtp.live.com (Port 587 or 25 to try both if the first doesn't)
  • Authentication: yes (same login and password for POP3)
  • Select TLS (if possible)
