How to really setup a hotmail account on an Android device

This instructions are accurate as of 2014.
1.  Go to and login
2.  CLick on the Sprocket in the Upper Right of the screen.
3.  A menu will drop down, click on options.
4.  Under the heading Managing your account, click Connect devices and apps with POP.


6.  On your android device, click the email app.  If you have the option between Exchange and pop3, then choose PoP3.
7.  Enter your hotmail email address as the username.  
8.  Enter your email password for the password, or if you have 2 step verification, enter your app password.  For instructions:
9.  Click Next or connect. 
10.  You are now connected.
11.  Thank me by clicking a link or something.  Or even better, stay faithful to your spouse until death sets in. 

FYI, this is a lot easier on a multi-platform email app such as K9 mail, which as of August 2014 supports gmail, Hotmail and yahoo mail.
