    Adding hotmail to your Vita email app

    For those of you wondering how to add your hotmail account, follow these steps.

    1. When adding your email, change IMAP to POP

    Example

    Name - Lethal
    Email Address - lethalnfs@hotmail.com
    Protocol - POP

    Incoming Mail Settings
    Host name - pop3.live.com
    Username - lethalnfs@hotmail.com
    Password - (your hotmail password)

    SSL - SSL
    Authentication - USER/PASS
    Port - 995

    Outgoing Mail Settings
    Host Name - smtp.live.com
    Username - lethalnfs@hotmail.com
    Password - (Your hotmail password)
    SSL - SSL
    Authentication - LOGIN
    Port - 587

    What if I don't want to use pop? I would like to view my emails everywhere not just on my Vita.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    wtf, who has hotmail? well besides Rookie_NFS?

    Setting it up is just like setting the POP3 in any mail client. Problem with POP3 though, is that it won't sync deliveries to other clients you're using.

    You can still view your emails from wherever you want. That is just how to get the Vita to load up your hotmail.

    So this is just a work around, and my emails are still going to be delivered to my Microsoft Outlook as well?
    Or do I just change it after?

    No you can't. If you use the Vita and have it delivered, and also use a mail client, not a web mail page, the same mail won't get delivered.

    I don't use a mail client like Outlook or anything. I thought he was asking about viewing his mail from his phone and such. I have my mail going to my phone and Vita.

    That just means you are going to your email, it isn't coming to you on the phone. Anyways... you still using the 3g on it?

    You can use the browser to log into the webmail site. The problem is that some sites aren't supported by the browser version the vita uses. Yahoo mail for example. It will allow you to redirect to an older version of their webmail client. See:

    Basically, POP is a "Post office Protocol". What it does, in this case, is you'll use a client to contact a web server, and request the emails. Once they are delivered to their destination (your email client), they are deleted off the server, and are saved locally on your device that has requested the email. You won't have access to have them delivered again, and those emails are tied to that client that received them.
