Nokia S60 Hotmail & Windows Live

I provide this service with no guarantees, every effort has been made to ensure that the information is correct but you perform this entirely at your own risk, I accept no responsibility for any loss direct or otherwise.

Users of Nokia S60, Symbian devices have a bit of a dilemma when trying to access hotmail. For some reason the wap version can be a bit hit and miss but people with standard accounts can't access hotmail through their phones mail client because they don't have access to POP3 or IMAP4. Helpfully Nokia and Microsoft got together and wrote the windows live application for series 60 devices supporting MSN Messenger and Hotmail.

That you might think would be the end of it but for an even more inexplicable reason many network customised versions of Nokia phones have had windows live removed from their downloads folder. I don't know why but some of the networks don't seem to like their bandwidth being used for instant messaging. That leaves us with the option of either debranding our phone and restoring it to the way Nokia intended before your network got their grubby hands on it or getting the hotmail app another way....

Compatible Phones

At the time of writing this application is compatible with Nokia: 5700 Music Express, 6110 Navigator, 6120c, E51, E61i, E65, E90, N73 (firmware v3.0638.0.01 or above,) N76, N80, N81, N82, N93i, N95 and the N95 8GB. I'd expect it to work with all new symbian devices such as the N96 etc.

Downloading the Application

PC users should download the zip file...

It's also worth mentioning that they have managed to integrate your phone and hotmail contacts together quite nicely.
