My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I installed incredimail. I tried to setup my msn account (the free version), and although i hink I set up everything correctly, including the password, but I got the Err authentication failed.
These are the settings that I used ;
In the E-mail Address box, type your email address.
-In Account Type, select POP3.
-In the Incoming mail server box, type pop3.live.com.
-In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.live.com.
-In the User Name box, type your MSN account name.
-In the Password box, type your MSN password.
-Click to select the Remember Password check box, if you want to save it.
-Leave the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box unchecked.
-Click More Settings.
7. Click the Outgoing Server tab, click to select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
8. Click the Advanced tab, click to select the this server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) check box under Incoming Server (POP3).
-The Incoming Server (POP3) box should be set to port 995.
9. Select TLS for Use the following type of encrypted connection under Outgoing server (SMTP), and then click OK.
-The Outgoing Server (SMTP) box should be set to port 25. If port 25 is blocked, you can set SMTP port to 587.
i am not sure whether the msn email cannot be setup in any other email software or not. Thank u for your advise.
