[access-uk] Hotmail with pop3 and smtp access - was:Re: Re: Alternative E-mail programs

no, Eudora cannot be used with http mail servers. however, hotmail now allows pop access. Use the following for your servers:

This solution article describes how to set up your Windows Live Hotmail POP3 account in an email client to send and receive emails.

Here's the information to configure your account on your preferred e-mail client:

- POP3 Server: pop3.live.com (port 995) - SMTP Server: smtp.live.com (port 25) {Note: If port 25 has been blocked in your network or by your ISP, you can set SMTP port to 587 with TLS or SSL Encryption depending on the client in use}

Note: Please make sure to check the box that indicates that your outgoing server requires authentication (in most e-mail clients, this is not checked by default).

- Username: your full e-mail address
- Password: your Windows Live ID password

Also, our POP3 service requires that you use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with the POP and SMTP connection and use SMTP authentication. This is to ensure that your e-mail address and password are not subject to tampering.

I have been using the above configration with myhotmail account in eudora for the last couple months. If you are looking for an email client to access http servers such as googmail, yahoo and a couple others, google for the free basic email client named popkeeper. It does not allow for complicated mail filtering etc but allows basic mail access and can be used portably.

Hi Ibrahim and all, can Eudora be used with HTTP email accounts too? I recently gave it a try but I couldn't find anything about Hotmail accounts.

Cheers,
