Incoming Server = pop3.live.com
-Port 995
-Encryption/Authentication = SSL is required
-Full Username = username@xxxx.com (same as full email address, where xxxx.com = live.com, msn.com or hotmail.com )
-Password is required
-SPA(secure password authorization) = Off(uncheck this option)

Outgoing Server = smtp.live.com
-Port 25 or 587 [Note: Preferred Outgoing is Port 587
-Outgoing Server Authentication = On(check the option)-Encryption/Authentication = SSL or TLS
* Choose SSL for Windows Live Mail, Outlook 2003, iPhone, iPod Touch, Outlook Express and Vista’s Windows Mail
* Choose TLS/Auto for Outlook 2007/2010 (required)
-Full Username = username@xxxx.com (same as full email address)
  – unless outgoing server is configured to use same incoming server option
-Password is required
  – unless outgoing server is configured to use same incoming server option
