    They have actually rolled out major changes recently. Try this in setup:

    1. First, you put in your email address and password, then you hit "manual setup" (not "next"), then choose "Exchange". From there, you'll see the following...
    2. Domain\Username: Clear out and put in your full hotmail address
    3. Password: if not pre-filled, obviously put in your hotmail password
    4. Server: m.hotmail.com
    5. Check "Use Secure Connection (SSL)"

    that should do it if you are running Froyo

    I have an Archos Tablet and can not send on hotmail. tried your recommendations but it didn't solve anything.
