    Something very strange is going on. Every time I try to setup either hotmail or outlook via exchange on my iPhone or iPad, it diverts to a standard Hotmail setup.


    Choose Add Account in mail settings, choose Exchange and input email address and password, press next. But instead of being presented with the server input screen, it immediately goes to the completion screen with mail, calendar, contacts, reminder sliders.

    Additionally when this is done, checking the mail app and going to Mailboxes at the bottom it shows the Hotmail icon instead of an Exchange icon for that account. This started early yesterday because I did setup the account via exchange late on Friday night and it behaved like a normal exchange setup.

    Another twist..... Someone using iOS 5 is not seeing this problem only iOS 6. Anyone else getting this?

    I have noticed the same problem (iOS 6 with iPhones 4, 5 and iPads 2, 3, 4). The mailbox types for my hotmail accounts had changed without me making any changes. I just noticed one day that the icons of the accounts were changed to hotmail type icons, previously they were exchange icons. Also, when setting up an account the functionality is as you describe.
