 Post subject: Live Mail setup on Droid X
New postPosted: Wed Oct 06, 2010 7:15 pm 

Guys, I've been having issues with setting up my Droid X to get mail from Live Mail.

I followed this exact setup from this link, reputable from Motorola.

https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp ... ---hotmail


I've repeating tried over and over again...played with a few things to no avail.

Any ideas? Yes, I ensure password/Username is correct.

+1

Hotmail:
Incoming = pop3.live.com
Outgoing = smtp.live.com
Outgoing server (smtp) requires authentication (same settings as incoming)
Incoming Port = 995 & requires SSL
Outgoing Port = 25

(These settings work on my iPhone and PC)

Live Mail has never fully worked on Android; I know because I have Live Mail. It only supports the inbox (no other folders). My suggestion is to set up GMail, which works GREAT with Android, and forward your Live Mail through it and send your mail through Live Mail via GMail. Plus, you'll have 2 spam filters!

That's a negative...you don't need to use "exclamation" point to shout at me, like I am an idiot...I've done everything..I always try to do my research first and foremost.

You don't need to REPEAT what I already have done....

Try to learn some mannerism....Thanks mate...


Mike, yes, that's what I am going to do...That's what I had originally thought of doing but I got tied up because my daughter broke her arm. :-(

I apologize for my tardy reply.
