Hotmail POP3 Now Available In The US, iPhone Friendly

Last month Microsoft announced that they’d be bringing POP3 access to Hotmail in select countries, great news for iPhone owners. Unfortunately for many users, it wasn’t available in the United States.

In the time since the announcement, Microsoft appears to have made good on their word that POP3 support would be rolled out in other countries as time went on. According to a tip we received earlier today, POP3 support is now active and working on the iPhone.

In order to get Hotmail POP3 up and running on your iPhone, you’ll have to manually set everything up. To do this, use pop3.live.com (port 995) for incoming mail and smtp.live.com (port 25) for outgoing. Your account will be your full Hotmail/Live address (e.g. michael@hotmail.com).

Enjoy!

Thanks to Joe for the tip!
