Hello!,

First I used the mail-app which is pre-installed, and I used ''Windows Live Hotmail'' to make an account. This worked but the mails weren't synced with hotmail and so in many cases I had to open mails twice (on pc and later on the phone or vice versa).
Now I used ''Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync'', and this works. It syncs my e-mails.

My question is: why are there two different possibilities for this when it does the same (except the syncing when you choose ''Windows Live Hotmail'')? I mean, who doesn't want their mails synced?

So, my question is: what is the difference between these two (except the syncing)?

IMO being over 14 years old, hotmail is archaic. M$ should dump it along with their other antiquated, bloated software. Hotmail always was a lousy email client. I used it for a year or so back in the day... however that probably doesn't really answer your question.

If you really want to up your game and have a smooth, instant email experience on your Android phone, I can suggest using Gmail. Since Google owns Android (the OS on your phone)  it makes sense to use Gmail. Open the Gmail account on your computer. It can be configured to import your contacts and to retrieve all email sent to your old email address, so you don't really have to change anything except the settings in Gmail.

All this will automatically populate the Gmail app on your phone. Contacts will sync with the SMS client and street addresses will also sync with Google Navigation. You just need to add that account to the phone's system settings. It makes things very convenient.

As I said it wouldn't, but it *is* a soulution.
