YAY POP3 Hotmail is here :D by aNILEator on 01-17-2009 at 10:17 AM

Got it working on my Mac Mail now :D

Here's the settings:

POP server: pop3.live.com
POP SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
SMTP server: smtp.live.com
Authentication required? Yes (this matches your POP username and password)
TLS/SSL required? Yes

Working for me (United Kingdom)

Good, now I can let GMail catch mail from Live accounts :p.

Patchou should auto-populate server/port/username/SSL fields for hotmail/msn/live addresses in new Plus!.

Still keeps failing authentication here... I guess I wait for the official announcement.

There is an annoucement of this on the Windows Live team blog, see A new way to get Hotmail on your phone.

Sadly it doesn't work for me, I'll try changing my country to the UK and see if I'm lucky.

I can stop my hotmail forwarding to gmail now just so I can get it on my iPhone!

Bah... not available here yet (as always ).
At least Windows Live Mail can handle html... no problems with Hotmail.

Still waiting for Hotmail to get IMAP, then maybe I'll start checking it out.

Still using WebDav to connect to hotmail.

Won't switch unless they have IMAP

This link has some pretty good information as well.  You need to make sure that you specify the correct port.

I now have my sister's email set up so that emails going to her old Hotmail account get POPed into her Google Apps mail account for use with IMAP. Works perfectly.
