Question: Cannot send mail from my hotmail account on my iphone 4s

i bought a iphone 4s and set up my hotmail account through the Mail setting - Add accout - Hotmail. I have never been able to send mail through this set up. i have deleted the account and re-setup the account several times and had no success. I am able to recieve email but this is still useless if I cannot reply. Is there anyone else with this problem? can anyone help me?


I love this phone, but this is definately a major downfall and I am really %&#@...... unhappy.

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

Your fix can be as simple as you got the password wrong. When sending from my hotmail I needed to go into my email service provider and allow my hotmail access to my email account...the server thought it was junk mail. Also make sure the S/MIME is Off? So email is the full account email plus domain; password (correct); description Hotmail; S/MIME Off. Keep in touch.

I tried the exchange set up and got the same message when trying to send an email. Then I went back and set up through the hotmail option and now is works. :s I don't understand but I guess that doesn't matter. Now I can finally send emails. Thanks for all the help

Solution that worked for me:


Remove that hotmail account from iPhone, then re-add it.


I waited for several hours incase it was something on the server, didn't help.

I re-entered my password and account name, didn't help.

Removing and re-adding the account fixed what ever glitch was happening.

I was having trouble emailing from Gmail on my iPhone 5, because the server didn't allow relaying, as some folks in this thread described . Deleting and setting the account up again didn't help. Someone in this thread said to go to Settings, Gmail, Advanced, Server Port, and change it to 25. It worked like a charm. BUT- here's the weird part: when I went back to check the server port, it had changed itself back to the previous port # and it's still working fine. Go figure.
