Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Thank you, Leo!
It works with Outlook Express on Windows 98SE.
I use Msn as my home page to access my hotmail email...I have for years. I got a new printer, and it ask me for my email address, password. Then it ask me for my server and port number. Then it ask me my user name and password. It keeps telling me it is not valad. Can you please help me?
Thank you for setting out these instructions so clearly. Very very helpful!
ps - forgot to say - I have Windows XP & yes it worked immediately I'd set it up.
For the last few months now I have not been able to send outgoing mail on mail app! It always says cannot connect with 'smtp.live.server:firstname.lastname@example.org'. I have tried changing ports to 25, 993, 465, 587 as I have read in other threads and ticking the SSL on and off! nothing is working! Im on snow leopard 10.6.8 (macbook air). its driving me insane!! I just want to send an email please help
i Can't send any email.. this error showing..

Here's an article which discusses that issue:
Why am I repeatedly locked out of my Hotmail account, and what can I do about it?
Thanks! - worked great. Can't believe I can't find this info from them.
Very helpful - it enabled me to set up retrieval of my live hotmail mail account on Outlook Express. Thanks very much.
