Right in time for the upcoming Windows Phone 7 launch and as expected, Microsoft today has enabled Exchange ActiveSync synchronization of its Windows Live Hotmail service for smartphones which now includes E-Mail push as well as calendar, contacts and tasks synchronization! Starting today, Hotmail users can get E-Mail, calendar, contacts and task changes pushed automatically to a smartphone, like Windows Phone, Android and webOS, using Microsoft's Exchange ActiveSync protocol. And if Hotmail is used with Outlook or Windows Live Mail, Exchange ActiveSync can deliver a seamless experience between the PC, any web browser and a smartphone, which is something that Google's Gmail isn't offering today!

To enable Windows Live's Hotmail Exchange ActiveSync, the required settings are:

  • Server / URL:
  • Username: Full E-Mail address, for example:
  • Password: The E-Mail's password as used for Hotmail
    Domain: Leave this blank
  • SSL: Enable this
  • Certificate: Accept the SSL certificate when prompted
  • Supported Services: E-Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Tasks

Exchange ActiveSync synchronization for mobile is now available for all Microsoft Hotmail users, free of charge!

Cheers ~ Arne
