E mail on Android.

My second post today relating to my new phone..( see Android messaging).
Using same phone,I have two hotmail email accounts I use daily. The first one set up, using the auto configuration, without issue. The second one will not set up. Both hotmail. Both created at the same time. I know that although it is addressed hotmail it is now outlook, but I have no issues on the pc or my tablet or my old phone. I've tried manual set up using same settings as the successful account, but still no luck. How are all these 'Russian women looking for husbands' going to find me now?

Re: E mail on Android.

install the official MS email client called "Outlook".
or use the stock android GMail app.

Re: E mail on Android.

Don't you have to log onto the hotmail account website and change the settings to activate POP3 first?
I just checked my Microsoft Live account and POP3 is disabled by default.

Re: E mail on Android.

yes, the OP should be using the IMAP option, not POP3.

Seems odd though, because it loaded the other Hotmail account automatically, and it must download these settings from Hotmail itself.
Anyhow, have taken your advice, thanks all, and loaded an email client off Playstore. Tried several throughout the day,and quite like this one so far , it's called 'Mailwise'.  Smiley

Re: E mail on Android.

whatever you do, don't use POP3 email on a phone, that would be idiotic!
