    Receiving hotmail in outlook 2007

    Hi folks. Tearing my hair out with this and itís driving me nuts.

    I have just recently bought a new windows 8 laptop (now windows 8.1) 64 bit. Have installed office 2007 Standard (32 bit) on it and now I want to configure outlook 2007 to send/receive my account (or is that now Either way I have scoured the internet and just cannot get it to work. I could choose pop3 but then my mail accounts wonít be synchronised across all my computers so I wanted to go the imap account. If I do this and use the settings I can receive email just find but it will not send.

    Iíve tried the outlook connector and that makes no difference whatsoever. Iíve tried pop3 and that doesnít work Iíve also tried imap and that doesnít work either. Iím blind and know what Iím doing with computers and outlook 2007 is by far the most accessible program for me to access my email through. What am I doing wrong and how can I sort this?

    Many Thanks.

    It does not matter if you use POP3 or IMAP because when you send mail it depends on the smtp settings. I would recommend you use IMAP. It would be much better to use Outlook Connector that uses custom ActiveSync which should work.

    Have you tried to uninstall and install the connector?

    Remember Hotmail address will be the same if I say Email which includes the domains,, and other country ones as well.

    Try the connecter with this link:
    Use an account in Outlook - Outlook -

    The other thing is this link:
    Set up an email app with - Microsoft Windows Help

    The answer you might be looking to is the correct SMTP setting:

    • Outgoing (SMTP) Server
      • Server address:
      • Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked)
      • Authentication: Yes
      • Encrypted Connection: TLS

    • User name: Your email address
    • Password: Your password
