Advantages of Hotmail app over native Kindle Fire app
This Hotmail app has several advantages over the native Kindle Fire app. While the native app, simply downloads your mail via POP3, the Hotmail app works on more robust Exchange Active Sync protocol. You can view your folders in Hotmail, including sub folders. The Hotmail app can sync all your mail, contacts, folders, and sub folders.
There are variety of customization options available. You can nickname the account and you can set the options for how many messages from the past to be displayed. You also have the option to truncate messages to display headers only or the entire message up to 100KB.
You can download the Hotmail app for Free from the Kindle Store.
