Hello,

Here are the settings from a fellow Palm Pre user for setting it up to access a Windows Live Hotmail email account:

  • Mail type: POP
  • Incoming Mail Server: pop3.live.com
  • Username: your full email address
  • Password: your password
  • Port #: 995
  • Encryption: SSL
  • Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.live.com
  • Use Authentication: ON
    • username: your full email address
    • password: your password
    • Port #: 25
    • Encryption: TLS
For addition help with Hotmail please see our free Hotmail Help forums.

Hello,

Did it work and then stop working, or did it never work at all?

Try double checking all of your settings and that settings are correct such as your full email address as the username in the outgoing mail server settings.

If all else fails you can contact Sprint and get a username and password so you can use smtp.sprintpcs.com as your outgoing email smtp server.
