Microsoft Announces Hotmail POP3 Support For iPhone In Select Countries

Microsoft has announced that Windows Live Hotmail now supports POP3 in select countries on a number of devices, including the iPhone. The announcement means that Hotmail users can now set their iPhone 3G to automatically retrieve email from their inbox based on a schedule.

POP3 access is available in United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. To set it up, users will need to set it to recognize the POP server as pop3.live.com (port 995) and provide their full WIndows Live ID and password for the account.

Thanks, Saijo George!
