Yeah I tried to sign in online through the safari browser but msn hotmail won't allow me to look at the emails. I can sign into My MSN but not the hotmail. I tried a different account that I just setup with strictly hotmail (address has and I can sign in online but my old MSN account that I pay for and has "" on the end won't let me access it online.

Don't call At&t tech for assistance, talk to Apple instead for this type of question/problem.

MSN mobile will work
by antjcat / July 10, 2008 2:23 PM PDT

I used MSN mobile and made a link directly to my MSN email on my iPhone home screen. I am able to check my email quickly however there is no notification/ push.


1. Use the following link from your MAC or PC:

2. Send your phone a sms message using the link (top right corner) on the page.
3. Once you receive the sms message click the link and it will open safari
4. Now that you are a the MSN Mobile page select Hotmail, then save the link to your home screen.

Now you are able to check your MSN email whenever.

I hope this helps and if you have any Q's please contact me.

Hey, you are a wizzard. This works perfect to access your MSN inbox. Too bad it's impossible to add MSN as an email account to the iPhone.

by skeeterzx210 / July 26, 2008 3:08 PM PDT

1.Upgrade to windows live plus

2.Run windows live installer

3.Here here a copy of the instructions

4. Using POP3 and SMTP servers through a Windows Live Hotmail Plus subscription

There are some users who have been able to access their e-mail accounts using our POP3 server by subscribing to Windows Live Hotmail Plus. If you would like to access your Windows Live Hotmail account using POP3 on your mobile phone's e-mail client, I would suggest that you sign up to Windows Live Hotmail Plus. However, before you sign up, please verify with your carrier if subscribing to Windows Live Hotmail Plus will allow you to access your account on your device.

Once your carrier confirms that subscribing to Windows Live Hotmail Plus is required, please go to the page below for details on how to get Windows Live Hotmail Plus:

After subscribing, apply the following server settings on your mobile phone's e-mail client:

Account Information:
Name: John Smith (enter your own name)
Address: (enter your full Hotmail e-mail address)
Description: Hotmail

Incoming Mail Server (POP):
Host Name: (port 995)

Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):
Host Name: (port 25)

Note: Make sure you check the box that indicates that your outgoing server requires authentication since this is not checked by default in most mail clients.

Username: Your full e-mail address (including or
Password: Your Windows Live ID password

Important: Our POP3 service requires that you use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with the POP and SMTP connection and use SMTP authentication. This is to ensure that your e-mail address and password will not be tampered with.

For specific step-by-step instructions on how to set up a POP3 account in your mobile phone's mail application, please contact your carrier.

We appreciate your continued support as we strive to provide you with the highest quality service available. Thank you for using Windows Live Mobile.

I hope this helps

to get Hotmail in your iPhone simply open an account with Yahoo,(skip if you already have one)
open Yahoo mail and go to "option" than "import contact" follow the step,imput the information of your Hotmail account ( or any other account ) Yahoo will import all your contact information and Hotmail will forward all the mail to Yahoo so you can read your Hotmail e-mail directly form your Yahoo account on your iPhone or computer
