    Seriously?? I'm like WTF, really!!

    All the problems with adding email among MANY other things were added in 3.0. For the 3GS you need 3.1 and above for a 3GS to run its best.

    +1... I understand that 1.1.4 runs smoother than 2.2.1 but I think you could handle at least 3.0.

    Well, 3.0 made it much easier to add hotmail.

    "May" be jailbroken? Not to sound like a jerk, but is this really your phone??? Did someone just give it to you or something?

    I've never tried to jailbreak, but isn't it kinda obvious if you have?

    Am I wrong? because unless somethings changed, you can't add hotmail to the iphone mail app because it doesn't have pop or imap capabilities.
    It's not your phone or the firmware, it's hotmail that's the problem.

    You can add Hotmail to the iPhone mail app, it's capable of pop now, I've done it myself; It will only have the Inbox & Trash folders though, it will not show any other folders and it won't sync with your account on your computer (no imap), so if you read an email on your phone it will still show as unread on your pc etc.

    As others have said, upgrade your firmware and re-jailbreak it if that's how you want it.

    This worked wow....

    http://windowslivehelp.com/solution.aspx?solutionid=6ae4b9c2-1c01-4e9c-bdc5-12da8728f4c2

    To setup pop3 on your iPhone please try the following steps:
    1. Tap Settings > Mail > Add Account > Other > Add Mail Account

    2. Enter Name, Hotmail Address (Your Live ID), Hotmail Password
    Note: You may get an error message saying that you will need to be a Windows Live Hotmail Plus Subscriber. If you see this message, please press "OK" to ignore the message. Pop3 service is now available for free for all Hotmail customers.

    3. Click "Save"
    Your account will be automatically configured at this point without further action from you.
