    having trouble setting up hotmail on my new iphone 4. After entering my name, hotmail address and pw, I keep getting the message that "user name or password for pop.3.live.com is incorrect. Done it numerous times so I doubt I've entered the data incorrectly.
    Thanks

    I haven't set up hotmail on my iPhone before, but I sometimes use the Messenger App MSN created. You can chat and check you email.

    Your settings are wrong... Try using pop3.live.com
