Set up Windows Live Hotmail in Mail
Authored by: clinton1550 on Apr 09, '09 06:51:16PM

I've followed the directions exactly but I can't get Hotmail to work.

Is there anything that needs to be done at Hotmail's end?

Make sure that the incoming mail is not only the correct server, pop3.live.com but also the correct port, 995. And make sure to use a secure server connection.

If you want to send mail from this account make sure that the smtp (outgoing) server is smtp.live.com and the port is 25 and that you enable authentication with your user name (email address) and password.
