    The issue probably is the settings you are using for hotmail. Try using these:

    • Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop3.live.com (logon using Secure Password Authentification - SPA, mail server port: 995)
    • Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com (TLS enabled, port 587)

    Hi Marriott7170, welcome to the forum. It looks as though Peter has already taken care of your email problem.
