hotmail.co.uk is that ok ?

Expert:  John T. F. replied 1 year ago.
Yes thanks! Let's try setting this up automatically first. You'll need to remove the account and then re-add it to the iPhone: TO REMOVE ACCOUNTFrom the home screen, tap Settings.tap “Mail Contacts, Calendars”From the Accounts section, tap the email account you wish to remove.tap “Delete Account”.tap “Delete” to confirm. TO ADD ACCOUNTIn Settings > “Mail Contacts, Calendars”… In the Accounts section, Tap “Add Account”. tap your email provider (Outlook.com) Follow the onscreen steps and provide the required information to configure your account. In the boxes provided you should enter your name, complete email address, password, and a description of the account. Once you’ve entered your information, in the top right, tap Next. After your account has been verified, in the top right, tap Save. (Note: Make sure that the Mail option is turned ON.) When the account setup has been completed, test that it works properly. Let me know the results of that attempt should it fail. John

Expert:  John T. F. replied 1 year ago.
Excellent! Glad to hear it worked, Bob!

I am not an employee of JustAnswer and do not have access to your account details to know the amount of deposit or the cost of the question for security reasons. I only receive a portion of the deposit given to JustAnswer when you finally rate my service.

Thanks,
John
