Configure your hotmail using exchange activesync in your iDevice

Have you wonder why only your inbox folder appears and after reading emails on the iphone using the mail app and when you use your computer to go into hotmail(web-based), the mails are still left unread?

It is because hotmail uses POP3. So configure your hotmail using exchange activesync.

How to:
Step 1: Launch the Settings App. Under Settings, tap on “Mail, Contacts, Calendar”.

Step 2: Then tap on “Add Account”.

Step 3: Tap on “Microsoft Exchange” to configure Hotmail ActiveSync.

Step 4: Enter your full Hotmail email address in both Email and Username fields. Leave Domain field blank. Enter your password. In the Description field, enter a name, e.g Hotmail.

Step 5: Then tap on the Next button.

Step 6: After the details entered above are successfully verified. You will get another screen where you need to enter for the Server name field. Then tap on the Next button.

Step 7: If the verification is successful, you will get another screen where you select the data (Mail, Contacts, Calendar) to sync and then tap on Save.

You are done!
