Normally to get the POP3 server details for a provider you'd need to get in touch with them directly.
Luckily I've been sent an email from MSN a few months ago telling me that the POP3 service was now available for my hotmail account.
Here are the details I was given :-
POP server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
POP SSL required? Yes
I was also given the link from MSN with all the other bits and pieces you might need.
Please let me know how you get on.

Thanks for the advise but this is the first time i have set up email on a phone can you just tell me if i am doing this correctly. after putting in the account name and user name and password it asks incoming server type you select POP3 for msn, then under incoming server you type in pop3.live.com, what do you then put under Outgoing server(smtp)?

I hope you're enjoying your phone
there are 2 choices for outgoing server details, either send.vodafone.net or smtp.vodafone.net
