    If you are asking about the names of their incoming and outgoing mail servers, I don't know the answer, but I do know that you can set up Hotmail on your iPhone in the ordinary way you set up any other POP3 account. The iPhone seems to know the names of the correct POP and SMTP servers.

    I've done this in the recent past and it does work. It didn't used to.

    Edit: I just set up iPhone Mail for my Hotmail account again. The incoming server (POP3) name is The outgoing server (SMTP) is But as I said above, you don't need to know this to set up Hotmail on your iPhone.

    I can see sent mail after sending a message from the iPhone. Not sure yet about other folders, besides Trash after deleting a message.
    That's odd. I can send email from my Hotmail account to myself on a Gmail account.

    I use mbox mail for the iphone to handle all my hotmail accounts. It works GREAT, esp. now with the new update

    mBox Mail works very well, I agree, especially after the last update.

    I can get all the usual folders to show up in Hotmail on the Mail App except for Junk Mail.

    Whoops, I didn't make that clear...

    All folders (junk and created folders included) show up in mBox mail app.

    I haven't found any way to get created folders and junk folder to show up in the built-in mail app.

    If you're talking about an app running in the background to fetch mail, no third party apps can do that yet (perhaps in 3.0?).
