Re: cannot connect to pop3 server

Are you concerned about setting up your Hotmail account in Windows Mail?
If so, follow the settings given here:!CC9301187A51FE33!49799.entry
Use port 587 rather than port 25 for the SMTP server.

Although it accepts the newer addresses, the Windows Mail
account setup wizard is hard-coded to reject Hotmail and MSN addresses.
To get around that, when you enter your Hotmail/MSN email address initially,
use a fake one, such as me@xxxxxxxxxxxxx After the account setup is complete,
go back and correct your email address.
