Well this is something I’ve been waiting for ever since I got my grubby hands on an iPhone back in March of last year. Wave 3 for Live Mail has finally gone, well, live! What does this mean for all the iPhone users out there?
Well, now you can access Hotmail properly through your iPhone (or other mobile device), without using the convoluted mobile.live.com site any more. It’s simple to set up. Just go to your iPhone’s Mail section under settings, add a new mail account under ‘Other’, put in your username and password details, and you’re away! Unfortunately first up it downloads all of your mail account to the phone, which means messages you’ve read before are now classed as unread. This mail is locally stored though, so you don’t have to worry about it being deleted off the server. You can clean it up as much as you like without fear of losing anything.
And there you have it! Proper email, on your iPhone, free of charge.
