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.
