Problems Setting Up My E-mail?


Tim Linville

Seems that I am having a problem setting up my e-mail, my POP3 and SMTP are
not working correctly, can anyone help me with this process, I am using a
hotmail account right now but want to change it over to Windows Mail,
formely Outlook Express?

Who is your mail service provider? If you don't know who that is,
what is the part of your email address after the @ symbol?

Also, you can now set up your Hotmail account in Windows Mail.
Follow the settings given here:!CC9301187A51FE33!49799.entry
Use port 587 rather than port 25 for the SMTP server.

Windows Mail's new account wizard is hard-coded to reject Hotmail
and MSN addresses. So, when you enter your email address initially,
use a fake one, such as (e-mail address removed). After the account setup is
complete, go back and correct your email address.
