POP3 settings for windows live

Hi, I can't find any pop3 settings for Live mail or Hotmail. There are no POP3 and SMTP servers provided by HotMail. None. There is no configuration for Outlook Express, or any other mail program that will let you download your email directly from HotMail for free. Please provide POP3 settings for my Windows live or Hotmail.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: POP3 settings for windows live

"pop3hot.com" as "the setting" for HotMail. Just put that in as your POP3 or SMTP and "it just works". And so it does. But... There are some things you really need to know about pop3hot.com: It's not HotMail - pop3hot.com is a service run by a company called IzySoft in Belgium. IzySoft is not related in any way to HotMail, MSN or Microsoft. It's not free - yes, you can plug in "pop3hot.com" as your POP3 server, and it'll work. For a while, as a free trial
Once the trial is over, you will have to pay to continue to use the service.
It's probably against HotMail's rules.

POP Settings for Windows Live Mail

These settings will allow you to access your Windows Live Mail from most mail clients (Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird, etc…) and some web mail services such as Gmail. Unfortunately, these settings will not work with Yahoo! Mail or Hotmail.

Incoming Server Settings


POP Server: pop3.live.com
Security: This server requires a secure connection (SSL)
Port: Default SSL Port 995

Outgoing Server Settings

There are 3 options for Outgoing Server Settings listed below in order of preference.

1. If you are configuring your mail client to access Windows Live Mail from on campus, use the following settings:

SMTP Server: smtp.uwp.edu
Security: None
Port: 25

2. If you are configuring your mail client to access Windows Live Mail from home, use the following settings:

SMTP Server: Enter the SMTP server of your Internet Service Provider. (E.g. smtp-server.wi.rr.com if you have Road Runner)
Security: None (unless your ISP states otherwise)
Port: 25

Re: POP3 settings for windows live

If you are configuring your mail client to access Windows Live Mail and want to use the Live Mail outgoing mail server, use the following settings.

Note: This is not recommended if server is very slow.

SMTP Server: smtp.live.com
Security: This server requires a secure connection (TLS/SSL)
Port: Default TLS/SSL Port 25
