Would you like to get your Hotmail email, calendar, and contacts on your iPhone or iPod touch? Here’s how you get Windows Live content synced and pushed to your iOS device for free via Exchange ActiveSync.
While Hotmail has remained one of the most widely used email systems for years, it has not always been the easiest to sync with your programs and mobile devices. This year, however, Microsoft has given the entire Windows Live suite an overhaul, and Hotmail has gained a number of new features. Among those is support for Exchange ActiveSync, which lets you get your email, contacts, and calendar pushed to your mobile device. As soon as you receive a new email, it’ll automatically show up on it, and any changes you make to your accounts will be synced with your online Hotmail account. This can work with a wide variety of modern smartphones, including Android and iPhone, so here we’ll look at how you can add Hotmail via ActiveSync to your iPhone.
