Can I use my hotmail account with Outlook Express?
I have a new hotmail account but wish to continue using outlook (its quicker than going on the web). Can i use my account with outlook?, does anyone know the names of the mail servers?
There is a difference between Outlook, and Outlook Express. If you want to check hotmail thru Outlook Express, Yes it's very easy.
Open OE, go to Tools\accounts.
Click the mail tab. Click add\mail.
The connection Wizzard comes up to help set up accounts. On the second screen, if you have a Hotmail account already working, just select "existing account" and type the address in. OE will recognize it as a Hotmail account and put all the proper settings in for you.
When you get to the screen asking if you want to use an existing email or sign up for a new hotmail account, just type in your hotmail email address in the top box, then click next. The next page should show you it's http mail and not pop3 mail then just click next, now enter your user name and password.
ah, unfortunately i do not have the 'existing account' bit to chose on the second screen.
what version of oe do you have (i have 50
could you plz tell me the pop and smtp servers (if you know what they are)
