Hi Everyone,

I am having some issues setting up Outlook as POP3 for my Hotmail account. I have some issues when setting up the incoming server. I can receive mails but i am not able to send them at all.

When i do a test i always get the error:

"The server responded: 421 cannot connect to SMT"

My outgoing server settings are:
smtp.live.com
Port: 587
Encryption: TLS.

POP3 settings are:
pop3.live.com
Port: 995.
Encryption: SSL.

Just to add.... This is what i have configured above.

But somehow when do try to send some test mails, I see that the port is picked up as 25.

The server responded: 421 Cannot connect to SMTP server. 65.55.96.11 (65.55.96.11:25). Connect Error 10060.
