    So I just bought an iPhone 5 and tried setting up all my emails in one location in the mail app. The only email that doesn't seem to work is hotmail. I've looked online and set it up on exchange, but no dice. It's an edu hotmail. Any advice? I see instructions for iOS 5 but ios6 doesn't seem to work for hotmail

    Hotmail / Outlook.com work on both the 5 and 5S on any applicable iOS.

    Hotmail is dead, is now Outlook Live, perhaps a new setting is required.

    You need to use the "Outlook" option when you set up your account on iOS. MS changed the service to "Outlook" instead of "Hotmail".
