Set up Outlook, Hotmail or Live account on an iPhone or iPad

Anyone who has an Outlook account can easily add it to the Mail application on your iPhone or iPad. Also Hotmail and Live users can do this. This allows you to easily use the service in iOS.

In addition to Mail, you can also use Outlook or Hotmail to synchronize your associated appointments and contacts linked to this account. You can also synchronize notes and reminders, but then you cannot use all functions. It is therefore best to only use Mail for this account. It is best to synchronize the other things with iCloud!
