setting up hotmail

Bit more info from my trial and error, hopefully useful to others.
In account settings POP3
pop3.live.com
port 995
enable SSL (set up settings are) Auto and verify
nothing else ticked in account settings POP3 tab

In account settings SMTP
smtp.live.com
port 587
enable SMTP-AUTH (set up settings are) CRAM-MD5, use pop3 option ticked
enable SSL (set up settings are) STARTTLS and verify ticked
nothing else ticked in account settings SMTP tab

Hi Chris,

Thanks for that contribution. In fact you didn't need to do that trial and error.

All the info is already included in the .ins file that can be downloaded from:
http://npopuk.org.uk/2.16/downloads.htm#setup
installed and customised with your own username and password.

There is a similar file for GMail too, and a more general file which you could customise for others using the same mail service.
