3GS IOS:4.1 & Hotmail


3GS IOS:4.1 & Hotmail

My phone died, so I had it replaced.  Only thing different is the OS version.  Hotmail will not send now, it says "the user name or password for SMTP:username@hotmail.com@smtp.live.com" is incorrect".  I can get my mail though?


Any thoughts?


Thanks in advance.

Did you restore the new phone using a backup or did you manually set up the email account on the phone?


Did you go into the setting and delete the hotmail account to try setting it up again?  


Instead of using "Other" when setting up the account, Hotmail now supports Exchange ActiveSync so you can get Push Mail.  You can give that a try.


Here are the settings for using Exchange Activesync so you can get push mail:
