POP3 Settings for Hotmail
Until now, Microsoft would only let you check your hotmail account through a special setting in Outlook or Outlook Express, or of course through the website. They actually charged you for the privilege of using POP3. Now, they are eliminating the old access methods and forcing you to use POP3 as of September 1, 2009.
Here are the settings you will need.
POP3 server = pop.live.com – port = 995
SMTP server = smtp.live.com – port = 587 or 25 (587 is better if your ISP blocks 25)
SSL is required
