How does it work?
To use Hotmail.com with text messaging, compose a new text message to the phone number 15686, and send hotmail.com in the body of the message. Follow the instructions to log in with your Hotmail or Outlook credentials. Once logged in, texting hotmail.com to 15686 will produce a menu similar to the one in the example.
How do I reply to a menu?
To visit links (notated by numbers in parentheses), simply reply with the number next to the menu item. For example, to read the first email in your inbox, reply 4 to the message. Similarly, to compose a new email message, reply 1 to the main menu message.
