MobileMe Hotmail

I'm a little confused by MobileMe. Today I signed up for the free trial because I really want to see how the push notifications work. I can't seem to integrate my hotmail account with MobileMe, though... I went through all the tutorials but still think I'm doing something wrong. Does MobileMe not support hotmail?

I have been able to get Hotmail to work on my 3G without MobileMe. It even pushes to my phone.

The settings I have on the phone are as follows:

Name: Your name
Address: email address (xxxxxxx@hotmail.com)
description: Hotmail

Incoming Mail Server

Host Name: pop3.live.com
User Name: email address again
Password: your password for hotmail

Outgoing Mail Server


On the advanced options, it has Server port 995 listed.

I think the difference is the live.com servers. I used to use the hotmail.com servers to set up the email on my old devices, but I guess you don't see these changes much when the devices do it automatically, for the most part now.

Hope this helps.
