Synching custom Hotmail domains onto iPhone

Following on from a previous blog I talked about hosting email with hotmail but still keeping your custom domains for free.

If you try and sync your custom domain on the iPhone mail it will not recognise the settings and ask you to enter the pop / smtp settings which I couldn’t find documented anywhere.

So here’s what you need to do (assuming this is your first mail account).

  • Tap mail
  • Select other
  • Enter your name email address and a description. This will not detect your settings and on the next screen you will need to enter the information manually.
  • For incoming mail server enter:
    • Host Name:
    • User Name: ‘Your custom Hotmail address’
    • Password: ‘Your password
  • Outgoing mail server:
    • SMTP:

Thats it! Your custom hotmail is now synch’d.
