Question: What Are the Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync Settings?
Looking for the Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync server settings?
Answer: The Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync server settings for accessing incoming messages and online folders in an Exchange-enabled email program, cell phone or mobile device are:
  • Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync server address: m.hotmail.com
  • Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync domain: (leave empty)
  • Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync user name: Your full Outlook.com email address (not an alias)
  • Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync password: Your Outlook.com password
  • Outlook.com Exchange ActiveSync TLS/SSL encryption required: yes

As an alternative to Exchange ActiveSync, you can also set up an email program to download mail from Outlook.com using POP.
