    You can now properly use Hotmail in the Mail app, all you have to do is type in your details on the 'Other account' section whilst setting your email up and sign up on Windows Live's website:

    Well Microsoft has enabled POP3 Access to Hotmail in certain countries such as the United Kingdom and Canada, but not the United States.

    No, the only thing I have installed from Cydia is MxTube

    Why would Microsoft not allow this for the US :S. Strange.

    The thought of it is epic, but all the emails I get on my hotmail account are FaceBook notifications.

    ^ I know, I don't have much important emails on my hotmail. This may mean I use it more now though.

    Here’s the information to configure your account on your preferred e-mail client:

    - POP3 Server: pop3.live.com (port 995)
    - SMTP Server: smtp.live.com (port 25)
    Note: Please make sure to check the box that indicates that your outgoing server requires authentication (in most e-mail clients, this is not checked by default).
    - Username: your full e-mail address
    - Password: your Windows Live ID password

    Also, our POP3 service requires that you use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with the POP and SMTP connection and use SMTP authentication. This is to ensure that your e-mail address and password are not subject to tampering.
