Microsoft has announced lately that POP3 technology is now available to Hotmail users in some countries (Egypt is not among them for sure!). However, you can overcome this restriction by changing the country in your hotmail account profile to one of these countries : United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands (I have tried UK & France). Wait few minutes then add your hotmail settings and check your mail.
How to do this :
- Open Settings.
- Choose Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
- Choose Add account.
- Choose Other.
- Type Your Name, Address (Your Windows Live ID, for example email@example.com)
and Password (The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live) then Tap Save.
- When It tells you that you need a windows live hotmail plus subscription, Tap Next then close Settings.
- Open Mail and Check your Hotmail account.
