Setup Custom Outlook.com Email Account on iPAD

I host my own domain (minzhang.com) email account on outlook.com. While setting up account on my new iPAD Air, the build-in outlook.com option does not recognize my custom domain.

The workaround is to setup the account as an normal IMAP account, using the settings I found here:

For POP protocol, here are the settings:
Incoming mail server: pop3.live.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.live.com
Incoming server (POP3): port 995
Outgoing server (SMTP): port 587

And here are settings for IMAP:
Incoming mail server: imap-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp-mail.outlook.com
Incoming server (POP3): port 993
Outgoing server (SMTP): port 587



The custom Outlook.com account could be setup as a Microsoft Exchange account on iPad, as long as you specify the server address to m.hotmail.com
