How do I get my Hotmail account to synch with my droid.
If I delete an email on my computer --- it still shows on my phone. If I delete an email in my phone....it does not update on my computer. I am hitting the refresh but guessing there is something else missing.
Or have I purchased a phone where now I have to keep up my email in two locations....I am not going to be happy if that is the case!
Here is Some instructions that might can Help Ya! b33
How can I set up Hotmail?

To setup Hotmail on your DROID RAZR once you have already set-up your phone, follow directions below. If you are addingHotmail account during your phone's initial startup, skip down to Set-up account menu (Instruction #3).
Your account is now set-up. Please test sending and receiving an email. If you are having issues sending email from Hotmail after set-up, edit the Hotmail account Outgoing server settings, uncheck Use secure server and change the outgoing port from 25 to 587. (Use 587 for sending/outgoing settings with Wi-Fi )
During the connection, you may be asked to complete a manual set-up if your email provider is not recognized, your email address/password is incorrect, or if your email provider has restrictions on mobile email set-up. Please check with your email provider to obtain all the information above. You will need your POP3 or IMAP port and server settings to complete a Manual set-up. If you have this information ready, proceed to next section regarding Manual setup.If prompted for manual setup, touch Manual setup. You can also get into manual setup by unchecking Automatically configure account after you entered your email address and password.
Your account is now set-up. Please test sending and receiving an email.

Thanks...I am not sure that I want to get into doing all of this as the email is set up and was done in the store by a representative.
I am looking at where you specify the port.
I thought the two devices would send info to hotmail as that is not actually stored on my computer but on their server.
Hoping someone would have run into this but it seems to be a lot harder to set up than it needs to be ..... is there a setting that I am missing????
Email is set up...just not deleting messages.
If you want an email to be deleted on both the device and computer, you should set up the email has Exchange sync. This will also delete the email from the server as well.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
