Thread: Hotmail/outlook exp

  1. #1

    Post Hotmail/outlook exp

    I have recently subscribed to Hotmail for an email address. I would like to be able to look at my hotmail messages through Outlook Express where I already have 2 other email accounts.

    I understand how to set up mail accounts but.........

    I have looked in MSN, Microcsoft and Hotmail but haven't been able to find the in and out server info any where, can anybody help. Thanks

    Is it normal for Hotmail to be very slow at tiems when America is awake.I live in the UK and we are 6 to 8 hours ahead of the USA. my morning things are fast but my evenings they are very very slow to access Hotmail. Thoughts??

    Hi. I have Outlook Express 5 set up to receive my husband's hotmail. When you set up the account, choose HTTP server instead of POP3, which will only give you one address line to fill in (not both IN and OUT servers like a POP3 account needs). Put this address in that line:

    I don't know about anyone else, but my husband's hotmail account is ALWAYS slow! My regular ISP email and my yahoo accounts are much faster.

    Hope this helps!

    You could also send an email to the hotmail staff and see if they will release the two servers to you, I know alot of places will not release them for security reasons, but, you never know.
