If you have an iPad and a Hotmail account, you may decide to configure your iPad to send and receive messages through that account. Hotmail accounts can be configured in the default iPad "Mail" application, as there is not an available standalone Hotmail application for the iPad. During the configuration of your Hotmail account you will be able to set up the Hotmail calendar to synchronise through the default "Calendar" application on the iPad as well.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Unlock your iPad, then press the "Home" button to display the iPad's home screen.

  2. 2

    Tap the "Settings" icon.

  3. 3

    Touch "Mail, Contacts, Calendar" at the left side of the screen.

  4. 4

    Touch "Add Account" at the centre of the screen.

  5. 5

    Tap "Microsoft Exchange."

  6. 6

    Type your full Hotmail e-mail address into the "Email" field, then retype it into the "Username" field.

  7. 7

    Type your password into the "Password" field, then tap the "Next" button.

  8. 8

    Type "" into the "Server" field, then touch "Next."

  9. 9

    Touch the "On" option to the right of "Calendar," then tap "Save."

Tips and warnings

  • You can access your Hotmail calendar by tapping the "Calendar" icon on the iPad. Your Hotmail appointments will be displayed alongside any other calendar appointments you have entered on the iPad.
