I have the same problem, I could not get any mail from my Ipad or Ipod since yesterday afternoon.

I configured my username and password using the POP account information box from the mail account setup process.

I can access my hotmail account using my internet browser (same username and password that the ones registered in the Ipad.

Enter full username ie ipadfiend@live.com
Password

It auto fills in the pop3 as pop3.live.com and the smtp as well.
