Hotmail account

Tue May 04, 2010 5:18 am

I need help with setting up a hotmail account in my MW 6.5.3. I found some information i rusticdogs topic "Hotmail offering POP3 access" from jan 28, 2009 but I am not sure that it is relevant. Anyhow it does not work. Any help would be appreciated. :D

How did you fix it?

Post what you did so the next fellow that has a problem can find the correct answer.

Open the main window in MW. Click on Tools. Click on Email Accounts. Click on Add account...
Follow after that the discription in the pictures. (I see just now that the pictures are in the revers order :devil . Start with the last one.)
Those options function for me. For receiving as well as bouncing mail. But you have also to create an account that fits in your email-software. How to do this in Outlook Express you can get help here:
