Microsoft opens POP3 and SMTP Hotmail / Live

This news passed rather quietly ... it appears here and there in some forums few users who had tried and tested the fact: Microsoft finally opened POP3 and SMTP mail service Hotmail / Live.

Most likely the advent of gMail and many other services with POP3 first, and then IMAP, open access your mail through a common email client, did reflect the Redmond company.

What happens at this point? Just it happens that if the situation were to remain so, will become more necessary as programs FreePOPs, MacFreePOPs and other services that allow to circumvent the problem of "POP3 server closed".

We all'operativo with the steps necessary to configure our beloved Mac Mail to download the Hotmail / Live ...

Parameters POP3 (Inbox):
Account Information

  • Description: Hotmail
  • Email address: tuonome@hotmail.com (or .com)
  • Full Name: Name Surname
  • Incoming server: pop3.live.com
  • Username: tuonome@hotmail.com (or .com)
  • Password: yourpassword

Advanced

  • Port: 995
  • SSL: active
  • Authentication: Password


Parameters SMTP (outgoing mail):

  • Server: smtp.live.com

Advanced

  • Use default port: 25

To simplify things even carry screenshots examples ...

I hope this tip will be useful to someone!
