HELP!! Can't figure out how to use my hotmail account in Windows Mail

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by JustAnsweringOnce, Feb 24, 2007.

  1. this may work....

    1.) open Windows Mail
    2.) click on Tools
    3.) click on Accounts
    4.) select the account you want (assuming you've already set it up)
    5.) click Properties
    6.) select the Advanced tab
    7.) verify that the Server Port Numbers (Outgoing -SMTP / Incoming - POP)
    are correct (the same as Hotmails)

    Hopefully, that will work...

    You don't.

    Hotmail support is no longer in Windows Mail.

    Might try some of the third party programs like Hotpopper or whatever it was
    called.

    Apparently not.
    Web based or try Windows Live Mail desktop which does support it. It is
    still in beta.

    hotmail is no longer supported in WM.
    you can use a FREE program called HotPop to retrieve your mail in WM.
    make sure you get the FREE one.

    It was so much easier with outlook. Did anyone have difficulty configuring
    the hotmail account to Windows Mail? I couldn't figure out how to do it. Any
    advice will be greatly appreciated.

  6. So that you'll use Windows Live Mail Desktop and see the advertisements.
