    It says: 'Check the settings for the outgoing servers in settings > Mail, contacts, calendars.

    My PW is correct as is my email... I don't know what it is.

    Outgoing Mail Server, SMTP says no server but I don't know how to change that.

    I have tried deleting and re-adding the account btw.

    I can receive emails bust just not send.

    Same problem here on my g/f iPhone, got hotmail and iCloud mail, it won't send through hotmail because the outgoing server doesn't accept her @hotmail email address, which is weird. Sending through iCloud works fine so i did the most sensible thing migrated everything from hotmail to iCloud for her and let M$ bite the dust

    Wasn't hotmail being turned off and moved over to outlook.com email?

    Try setting it up as exchange. Use server m.hotmail.com. Username is your full @hotmail.com email address. I think that's the only settings you need to put in, plus password. That's how I have mine, works perfectly.

    You don't have to set it up using Exchange as noted above (you can, but don't have to). Go to Settings --> Mail, Contacts, Calendar --> Hotmail --> Outgoing Mail Server then tap the server name. It should be set to smtp.live.com and then you should be all set. I have it working on my phone so quote or PM if I can help further.

    Yes, Microsoft is in the process of moving everyone over. But it's not complete yet. The OP said that he/she can receive Hotmail so they must have not migrated yet.
