How to set up email on your iPhone or iPad

How to set up email on your iPhone or iPad

Microsoft has released, what they consider to be the next-generation of email. And much to their credit, Microsoft have gone above and beyond to make sure you can access it not only on the web, but from any and all of your devices, including the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Here's how.

How to access on your iPhone or iPad via the web

You can login to on your iPhone or iPad, the same as you can login to it on your Windows or Mac PC.

  1. Go to
  2. Enter your email address and password.
  3. And you're in!
  4. If you'd rather use the full site than the stripped down mobile site, scroll down and tap on PC Site (why "PC Site" and not "Full Version"? Ask Microsoft!).

If you're on your iPhone, you'll get a warning saying you need to upgrade your browser to a newer version of Safari. Ignore than and tap on Continue. That's just poor interception (since you can't update iPhone Safari the way they imply.)

How to access on your iPhone or iPad via Mail

Better than the website, you can set up the built-in iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad Mail app to get your email.

  1. Launch the Settings app from your Home screen.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Mail, Contacts, and Calendars.
  3. Tap on Add Account.
  4. Tap on Hotmail.
  5. Enter your email address and password.
  6. Select what you want to Sync.

And you're done! You will miss out on any web-specific features, which are what Microsoft is working to make all shiny and revolutionary, but you will get all your mail in the unified inbox, right beside iCloud and Gmail if you use those services as well.

Note: You can also set up as Exchange ActiveSync. Just follow the same steps above but choose the Exchange button and use as your server.
