hotmail pop settings for evolution email

I was wondering if anyone knew the hotmail settings for connecting through evolution mail as i have a e-mail address and i don't really want to change it as i'm far too lazy to tell everyone. Thanks if ye can help me.

PS. I cant stand the ****ing look of the on line version of hotmail anymore

AFAIK, Hotmail only has its mail setup to be used over HTTP, not POP or IMAP. At one time you could use Outlook Express I believe to retrieve your mail, but of course, they probably had that built into their program since its theirs..

Get a real email account if you don't like Hotmail...

If you actually have a address and you connect using to the Internet, I'm sure you have a member services page you can access with this information to setup your msn mail in client programs...

Ok this what they say on the MSN web site but it is possible to configure an E mail client to get hotmail.

Iam looking into it as i need it today and remember doing it before.

The guy who posted his question is right : it is a matter of pop and smtp, let's get them then it would work.

warmest regards

The only diference I saw is that in the username box, it must be filled with the complete e-mail address. Instead of writing user_name I wrote and it works..... windows al fin.
