5. Enter your user name, the full e-mail address, password, and a description of the account. Then tap "Save".

6. For Hotmail accounts, it will automatically grab the proper server settings.

OK! Now your iPad should try to sign into your account. It will give you a conformation when it is done. If you get an error then double check your password. If you're still having problems sending and/or receiving messages, you can try these manual settings:
Incoming Mail Server - Host Name: pop3.live.com; User Name: ***@hotmail.com
Outgoing Mail Server - SMTP: smtp.live.com
