    Default Galaxy S4 how do I add a Hotmail account

    I can't add my Hotmail account to my phone using the regular app that the phone offers. I called my carrier tmobile and the told me that the phone doesn't support it, is this true? The told me just to download the outlook app, but i would like to have all my email account in one place.

    Welcome to Android Central
    What app are you using? I believe my S4 came with a G-Mail and an E-Mail app, with only the latter supporting Hotmail.

    In the stock email app, use the option for "others".

    Install the Outlook come app. I found that to be the best option for Hotmail accounts.

    I agree. Microsoft replaced the Hotmail service with Outlook. The Outlook app lets you have multiple accounts using Hotmail.com, Live.com and Outlook.com. I currently have three accounts. You can get the Outlook app in the Play Store.

    Yes, this app works, but I was only able to add one email account. I can't figure out how to add a second.
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks.

    You need to add the account through your phone's System Settings. Just go Accounts and select Add Account. You will then have the option to select which type of account you are adding. In this case select add an Outlook.com account. From there just enter your email address and password to create the account. Do this for each Hotmail account you need to add.
