    The following are the settings for accessing an Outlook.com account from a mail program on your computer or an email service such as Gmail that supports checking email hosted at other email providers:
    • Type of account: POP3
    • Email Address: example@outlook.com
    • Password: your outlook.com password
    • The incoming mail server is pop3.live.com (port 995)
    • The outgoing mail server is smtp.live.com (port 25)
    • For the outgoing mail server check the box for My server requires authentication
    • For both incoming and outgoing mail check the box for This server requires a secure connection
    If you have the Microsoft Outlook desktop program that comes with Microsoft Office you can use this Hotmail/Outlook connector instead of manually configuring your email acocunt.
