Windows Live & Hotmail POP3 & SMTP Settings

Sponsored Links

Hotmail email service from Microsoft is really super popular in my friends group, Those who started using computers before 2003 all of them use Hotmail as their primary E-mail. I must say microsoft has been working really hard to keep the Hotmail Porduct upto date, I personally love the Free skyDrive service that comes with a windows live or hotmail account.


Here are the POP3 & SMTP settings for Hotmail:

POP3 server: pop3.live.com
Port : 995
