How do I set up Proxy Authentication for hotmail email in Outlook


G

Guest

At my work we require a Proxy Authentication, before this i had no problems
with my hotmail e-mail and outlook, now it sends me an error message.

I've done the following:
Tools > E-mail Accounts > View or change existing e-mail accounts > Next
Selected my e-mail account 'Hotmail' > Change
for my POP3 e-mail account if I clicked on 'More Settings' i could then
click on the Outgoing Server tab then tick 'My outgoing server (SMTP)
requires authentication' and put in my log on details for the work server.
However, when using Hotmail, this option isn't there.
Can anyone help?

Hotmail is not POP3 mail but http mail. Try those settings but I doubt you
can do anything.
