Windows Live gets Exchange ActiveSync

Today Microsoft rolled out Exchange ActiveSync support for Hotmail, Windows Live Calendar and Windows Live contacts.   If you have a mobile phone or device that supports Exchange ActiveSync you can now get push notifications that allows your phone to keep your Windows Live email, calendar and contacts in sync.

To get started, just configure your mobile device to use m.hotmail.com as it’s Exchange endpoint.   According to NeoWin, desktop clients are currently not supported.

Configuration example:

Email: Your full email address, no matter what it ends in (@hotmail @live etc.)
Server: m.hotmail.com
Domain: Leave blank
Username: Your full email address as above
Password: Your Hotmail/Live Mail account Password
Description: Up to you (Hotmail, Live, etc.)
Use SSL: ON
