A moan, a groan, my life story and how me, a technically minded person just can't seem to fit in with anybody.

How to recieve and send MSN, Hotmail, Live email on android phone

I thought I’d just share these settings, as I have found they are impossible to find. Also I will point out that this is POP3 and SMTP settings and not IMAP. Correct me if I’m wrong but you have to pay for IMAP access, and I think thats why these settings are hard to find… Why tell you how to connect for free when they want you to pay. Another great thing with these settings I have found they work on ISP’s and mobile networks that normally block port 25. So here they are:

Incoming Settings:
Username: [email protected] (use your full email address)
Password: ********
POP3 Server:
Port: 995
Security Type: SSL

Outgoing Settings:
SMTP Server:
Port: 587
Security Type: TLS
Require Sign-in: yes
Username: [email protected] (use your full email address)
Password: ********

So there we go. Also these settings will work on other email clients not just android phones.
