Optimus S Hotmail Email will not Sync.

I can get Hotmail Email on Optimus S phone but when I delete the email record from phone the email record remains in Hotmail account on desktop.  If I can't resolve this I'm going to have to return the phone.  Can anyone help or is this a Google hates MS thing?

It may be the other way around.  MS has not written an Android application for Hotmail.

Perhaps try one of the webmail interfaces available on the Android market until MS writes a Hotmail application.

  1. Remove existing hotmail account (press and hold the account until you see a menu and then "Remove account"
  2. Menu key (four squares physical button) and then "Add account"
  3. Put in your email address and password
  4. Select "manual setup" at the bottom; do NOT select "next"
  5. choose "Exchange"
  6. Anything in "Domain\Username" field should be deleted and then replaced with your hotmail address
  7. put in your password
  8. Server should be set to m.hotmail.com
  9. Check "Use Secure Connection (SSL)"
  10. ...and the rest is obvious
