    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.

    I go to mail settings
    Select other


    Enter name
    Enter full username ie ipadfiend@live.com
    Password

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