eM Client

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit, and I have Office 365, and use Outlook 2013.  but my msn account (the free version) has problems working with Oulook 2013, as Tech support says that the number of emails and folders are too many for my home edition of Office 365.  I would like to ask if using eM Client will solve the problem, but trying to enter my msn email account always gives me a wrong password, even though it is correctly  typed.  Unless msn only works from trusted sources, like my usual way of going thru the web msn.com, then outlook.com.  Hope the Expert can please throw some light on this. thank u.

According to this msn is a pop3 setup
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/287604/

The steps listed for outlook (using pop not the hotmail connector) should be the same for emclient.

Be aware that pop will work differently than IMAP and how you may be used to email functioning. Pop is a pull, not a sync so it works very badly across multiple devices.

When setting up your mail account in eMClient, select 'Outlook' as the account type.

in response to Aaron, I tried to configure my Outlook 2013 with the information in the link that u provided.  When setting up the account, I always got the error for the smtp.live login, giving me an error for the password.  Even when I keep entering the password again, I still get the same error.
Are the passwords for live.com, smtp.live.com different from the msn email account's password.
also for the username, should it be like name@msn.com or just the name without the @msn.com
So I am back to square one again.  Thank u.
