    Hi first post, managed to get a fire sale 32gb Touchpad, going through all updates homebrew etc (many thanks) but one thing I would like is, to be able to sync & view live mail calendar on the touchpad. I have searched but most items on this relate to the Pre. Anyone had any luck.

    Go to Accounts from the launcher (not from the calendar or mail drop down)
    Go to "Add an account"
    Tap "Microsoft Exchange"
    Tap "Manual Setup"
    Server: https://m.hotmail.com
    Set username and password, leave domain blank

    It should let you select Calendar for syncing.

    HELP!

    I tried the suggestions outlined here to add my live.com and outlook.com accounts (email, contacts, and calendar) to my TP but had no luck. I attempted to add them by these two methods:

    (1) INBOT'S SUGGESTION ABOVE
    This approach resulted in this error message: BAD USER NAME OR PASSWORD. ERROR CODE 1000. HTTP ERROR 401. (I had the user name and password right.)
    -Go to Accounts from the launcher (not from the calendar or mail drop down)
    -Go to "Add an account"
    -Tap "Microsoft Exchange"
    -Tap "Manual Setup"
    -Server: https://m.hotmail.com
    -Set username and password, leave domain blank
    -It should let you select Calendar for syncing (never gave me this option)

    (2) TP's DEFAULT SETTINGS FOR ADDING EMAIL ACCOUNT
    -Go to Accounts from the launcher (not from the calendar or mail drop down)
    -Go to "Add an account"
    -Tap "Email"
    -Enter email address & passord
    -Successfully created email account but my calendar & contacts aren't available
    -Server: https://m.hotmail.com
    -Set username and password, leave domain blank
    -It should let you select Calendar for syncing. (The TP never gave me this option. I tried to manually ad a calendar by selecting Calendar > Preferences & Accounts > Add an Account > MS Exchange, but I got the same error as above: BAD USER NAME OR PASSWORD. ERROR CODE 1000. HTTP ERROR 401.

    I would be so grateful for any suggestions. The TP is my only computer at this point and I cannot function w/o a calendar, email, and contacts.

    Thanks,
    Mary

    I use the same settings as mentionned in method 1 and it works on both Pre & TouchPad.
    *Try to use m.hotmail.com without the https
    *Make sure you enter your username as username@live(outlook).com
    *If your username is long try using a shorter one (aroud 8 characters)
