Android push email settings for gmail and hotmail/live mail

Recently I acquired a Galaxy Tab, and found that the stock Samsung email app is much more screen real-estate friendly than the GMail app.

Now to get push email working on the Samsung app, you need to configure your email accounts using the Microsoft Activesync profile.

For gmail, the settings are as follows:

Email or account: Google\email@Gmail.com 
Server: m.Google.com
SSL enabled
username: Google\email@Gmail.com
password: password

For hotmail or live mail, the settings are as follows:

Email or account: myemail@live.com
Server: m.hotmail.com
SSL enabled
username: myemail@live.com
password: password
