Hotmail getting Exchange ActiveSync support on Monday

August 27, 2010

As reported by CNet, Hotmail will be getting Exchange ActiveSync support on Monday. What does this mean?  It means better syncing of your email including folder management, push notifications, delete, and more reliable overall connections between Hotmail, iPhone, Palm Pre, Windows Phone and any other phone including Android that supports ActiveSync or Exchange server connection.

I have used the upcoming feature in testing and can say it worked in my case exactly as advertised.  Glad to see the Hotmail team make this investment – surely not a small engineering job.
