View Full Version : Hotmails POP3 and SMTP config

Ive just got setup using NeoPlanet Web-Browser coz it comes with its own email client and I like the skinning. I had been using Outlook Express 6 SP1, but it was giving me grief.

I am wanting to know hotmail's email config so I can send and receive from within NeoPlanet, In Outlook Express, you simply type in "username@hotmail.com" and it does the rest, but even with setting imported, it wont do it under NeoPlanet!

Hotmail doesn't use pop3 and smtp servers, it uses HTTP servers and an Active Server Page, so when you setup your account Outlook liases with the Active Server page and gets you your account info.

The address is http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp if your interested. However, there is a program that's supposed to allow you to access Hotmail on programs that don't support HTTP mail servers.. although I cannot remember it's name - sorry :(
