In case you are like me, carrying around a smart phone; I would like to receive email from my ancient Hotmail account. After some searching I found the info here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=517354 which was posted by dubstar_04.
K9Mail is a little more complex to setup than the default email client for Android but is far superior when it comes to speed and ease of maintenance.
In case the link gets broken here is what he posted:
It seems that this is a little known fact that msn / Hotmail pop3 access can be gained using these settings. I find that K9 Mail works better than the standard email app. Incoming: Username: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: your password POP server: pop3.live.com Port: 995 Security type: SSL (always) Outgoing: SMTP server: smtp.live.com Port: 25 / 587 Security type: TLS (always) Username: email@example.com Password: your password When i first set an account up it brings back some blank mail, which i delete after that it works fine.

If you are reading this, chances are you have a Windows Live or Hotmail account. If that is the case, I recommend another one of my articles to get the most out your Skydrive.
