Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync allows your phone to be instantly updated with new e-mail, calendar entries, and contact updates. Not only has this instant updating, known as “push,” been an option for Exchange/Outlook accounts from the start, Google beat Microsoft with this feature over a year ago, with its Sync technology.
Here’s the steps to set up push Hotmail using ActiveSync on your iPhone or iPod touch. After doing this you will automatically be notified when a new email arrives rather then waiting for a scheduled check.
The steps are given below.
Step One: Press to select Settings from your iPhone SpringBoard.
Step Two: Press to select Mail, Contacts, Calendars from the Settings Menu.
Step Three: Press Add Account.
Step Four: Select Microsoft Exchange from the list of account types.
Step Five: Enter your full hotmail email address for the Email and Username fields then fill in your password. Press the Next button at the top right of the screen to continue.
Step Six: Input m.hotmail.com as the server address and press the Next button.
Step Seven: Use the switches to select which items you would like to sync and press the Save button.
