I would like to access my Hotmail e-mail account rather than my google e-mail account over wi-fi. How do I do that? It looks easy but obviously I'm not understanding what to input.

The icon is an envelope with a yellow paper with the @ symbol.
When pressed lines for e-mail and password are given to be filled.
After filling them and when next is clicked "Couldn't open connection to server ' is declared.
The other button says manual settings
When presses it asks "What type of account is this ? ". POP3, IMAP, Exchange are three buttons presented.
I am at a lost as to what to input and from where I get the information.

For hotmail:
choose Exchange active sync.
domain/username is: /(email_address)@hotmail.com
password is: your email password
server: m.hotmail.com
use secure connection (SSL)
