I think that is a hotmail problem. I sometimes get that exact error even on my computer. Then, all of a sudden it will start working again. This has happened on my mac, my pc, and my iOS devices. It has happened off and on for about 3 years - maybe once every 2-3 months. So, give it a couple of hours. It might be that that is what is happening to you and your iPhone are totally fine.

Like I said, it could still be a problem with Hotmail!!!!
It happens to me out of nowhere from my mac, iphone, ipad, and old pc (on XP, Vista, and Win7). All of a sudden only one of them cannot access the email. Then a few hours later all of a sudden all works fine.
I'm not saying that is your problem too, but it could be. I spent hours over several days trying to figure it out (2 years ago) and I finally gave up. It's usually not an issue, but when it happens it's really annoying. Sometimes it will last an entire day.

OK guys and girls i found a fix!
It is to do with ios5 (obviously).
To fix your hotmail issue do the following:
1. Go to Settings, Mail, and delete your hotmail account(s) from your iphone.
2. Then go to Settings, Mail and press Add Account.
3. Select the HOTMAIL option at the bottom and ... VOILA!!!
This will then work/fix the issue of sending mail/passwords etc
