    Now you can use your normal Hotmail/Windows live account on the stock Mail app on the iPhone/iPod Touch. No more paying for a 'plus' hotmail account, or buying the expensive mBoxmail app.

    It seems that Microsoft Hotmail Live now supports POP3 Technology however, it is limited to a few countries including; Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom.

    You can check out Microsoft’s blog entry about rolling out POP3 for more info! On a side note, it seems that they will continue to make the POP3 technology available for other countries as the year progresses.

    Below is mattyb123’s tutorial on how to set it up on your iPhone…for those of you which it is available.

    You can now use your hotmail account in the Mail.app. I have been waiting for this because the mobile version didn’t show any images just codes for them.

    All you have to do is:

    - Open the Settings app
    - Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars
    - Tap ‘Add Account’
    - Choose ‘Other’ for the account type
    - Type your name, email and password.
    - Tap ‘Save’ (step added by Brooke)
    - Tap ‘Next’
    - Close Settings and open up Mail
    - Refresh your mail and it will show your messages.

    After typing the info and then tapping next, it told me that I needed a Windows Live Mail Plus account to use my account in Mail. I don’t have a Plus account but it still works.

    It says "Do you want to try to connect without SSL"?
