Now Windows Live Hotmail support POP3 protocol. 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)
– 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.
