    When I delete messages from my hotmail account on my phone, the message remains on hotmail when I access it on computer. Is there any way to correct this?

    Do you have Delete mail on server checked in your settings under send receive settings?

    Here is some info on POP3 the method hotmail uses to connect:
    Post Office Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Connecting to your hotmail accounts will change soon for the better as Hotmail Wave 4 is coming out (MS's fancy way of naming the next upgrade) and it will support activesync.

    i was reading up on this yesterday. Dont remember where (i think it was ppcgeeks) but it has to do how hotmail handles emails right now. There is supposed to be a new hotmail coming soon with push technology to fix this. I read it here: http://www.pocketpccentral.net/newsc...rt-coming-soon

    This is a Hotmail issue. It did the same thing on the Pre. What I did was have my Gmail account go retrieve all hotmail emails from the hotmail inbox that way all i have to do is check my Gmail.

    Hotmail is so inferior to Gmail.

    Same here and added a rule to label all email as hotmail so I know where they came from.

    PEACE...
    This fix should work--it works on mine:
    Go to Mail icon. If this is the first time you've setup any mail service on your phone, you will be prompt to enter in a username and password. Enter in your Hotmail email address and password
    Click on the Manual Setup at the bottom left corner
    In the incoming server setting, entering as followed
    User Name : user@hotmail.com
    Password : your email password
    Incoming Mail Server : pop3.live.com
    Security (Port) : SSL
    Port : 995

    Press next to continue with SMTP Server. Once on that screen, enter in these settings

    Email Address : user@hotmail.com
    User Name : user@hotmail.com
    Password : your email password
    Outgoing Mail Server : smtp.live.com
    Security (Port) : TLS
    Port : 587

    This should help...credit goes to:KEVIN T. NGUYEN-TU from Mobile Technology Deals and Help

    @ZDK - mine is already set to those server settings by default, and I have the e-mail delete intermittent issue.

    Droid X doesn't have those security port options is that for Froyo, or just the HTC EVO 4G?
    The only available security options on DX is "Use secure connection" and "Verify Certificate"
    I had everything else already set up like ZDK suggested, and am still having the problem.
    Obviously this problem isn't exclusive to the EVO...

    One of the reasons I finally switched to gmail. the integration is great. It sucks because I actually like using the new "hotmail" better than gmail.
