You should be able to access live mail via the email app on the Pre. You'd have to manually set up the account:
Incoming Server: pop3.live.com
Outoing Server: smtp.live.com
Use Auth: On

No, it doesn't erase the messages from the server. I've got 2 live accounts configured via the email app and the messages remain on the server. If you delete an email on your Pre you'll find the message in the 'Trash' folder on the Pre and the 'Deleted' folder in hotmail.
The only caveat is when you setup the hotmail account and it syncs, all of the messages will be unread on the Pre. If you have a lot of messages it can be a pain since there isn't a way to mark groups of messages as read yet. You can, however, choose to only see a few days worth of msgs instead.
Hope this helps.

I use to have my Windows Live email account setup on my treo 755 as IMAP and it worked flawlessly... However on the Pre it will only show the emails not be able to send them.
Also Windows Live is able to accessed via EAS, I've been working with the IT department and we can't figure out how to set this up either.
Why are you all settled on a POP3 account when EAS and IMAP should be supported?
EAS allows syncs of calendar and contacts > IMAP > POP

Hi, I just came across this thread and yes, my pre will allow hotmail to be setup on the pre client. But what if I onlly want to read it via a browser? Currently, my pre just wont' open up the message. Not sure why...

My Hotmail will not automatically setup on my Pre. Once I enter my email and password (Add Account) and click sign in, another screen displays requesting Incoming and Outgoing Mail Server information. Can someone help me out with the information that should be placed in the fields?
