    Morning, just curious, do we have a lot of Hotmail users using iOS?

    I've used Hotmail for many, many years. I also have a few Gmail accounts, but Hotmail is the account I usually use when I deal with vendors, and it catches most of my spam.

    Confused, your college email is on Hotmail's servers, a bit like Google Apps?

    Try removing the info in the Domain field.

    So your selection of Hotmail was based on best spam filtering? You enjoy usability vs GMail?

    Chris I use Gmail, well actually Google Apps, I have my own domain. I was curious if others were using Hotmail on iOS.

    Gmail\Google Apps is certainly the way to go :)

    Primary Email: Mac.com
    Secondary Email: GMail
    Spam/Online Shopping: Hotmail

    The biggest problem with Hotmail is the sheer volume of spam that arrives each day. The filtering is good so only the emails I want to get through actually hit my iPhone inbox. But I find it's necessary to look through the spam folder often just to make sure something I don't want in there hasn't been filtered into spam.

    I also have mail.com and yahoo email accounts but they've been so awful I mostly just ignore them.

    iOS + Hotmail (setup for Exchange) is the perfect combination. In fact it's the primary reason I bought an iPhone. I can literally hear the button on my mouse click "send" and my girlfriend's iPad email notification goes off--it's THAT fast!

    I have a custom domain pointing to the account.

    I get no spam at all. I use the option to delete spam permanently and never see it.

    iOS automatically syncs the contacts and reminders too. Very pleased with the integration.

    The bar has been raised and I will no longer settle for anything less than full contact, calendar and email synchronization. No more POP. No more IMAP.

    That's how fast Yahoo has always been for me. It's faster than if I send it on my desktop computer!
