outlook 2007 - changing email configurations.
Posted on 2013-10-13
My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Outlook 2007, Outlook connector and also MSN email, the free account. During my last configuration change, the Account settings were configured as :
IMAP, the incoming mail server was set to IMAP.MAIL.OUTLOOK.COM
the outgoing mail server to ; SMTP.MAIL.OUTLOOK.COM
From this forum I am informed that the MSN email, since it is a free account, must be configured as a POP3.
Can an expert please advise, what should be the setting for both the servers, and also if I should also make other changes in the "More Setting".
Before this change took place, the account was set to a MAPI account. and I did not have problems with this setting until it dropped dead on me.
If it is not too much of a problem, hope the Experts could please suggest the settings for this type of account, i.e. MAPI, so that if things do not work as a POP3, maybe I could try the MAPI account. Thank u once again.
