When POP access to Hotmail isn’t good enough and you don’t want to pay for IMAP access then Actice-sync is the perfect solution. Not only is it free and fast it also has push capability. To set it up use the following info:

  • E-mail: username@hotmail.com
  • Server address: m.hotmail.com
  • SSL enabled
  • Username: username@hotmail.com
  • Password: <your password>
  • Domain: <blank>

I’ve had this working on Windows 6.5, Windows mobile 7  and Android.
