Hello! I found a post somewhere online with instructions to use hotmail as a pop3 and smtp. used it yesterday and it worked 100% fine!!!! sent received, the works!
today - it stopped. will recieve but not send. I did make one change - I set it to delete from the server when it downloads. can't understand how that would have made the difference.
here are the settings that I used.
incoming server: pop3.live.com
incoming port: 995
SSL Encryption: yes
Outgoing server: smtp.live.com
outgoing port: 25 (use port 287 if the default port is not working)
TLS or SSL: yes
(the other account that i have in outlook is an exchange server that I access through a vpn... I have a rule set up to send all emails coming in through the hotmail account to a .pst file for the hotmail account)
