Which SMTP Setting to Use to Send Mail With a Hotmail Address

We use Hotmailcom and Windows Live Hotmail email so often. However, many of us, as far as I am concerned, do not know how the Hotmail email works. As a matter of fact, only when we use the correct SMTP server settings can we send email through an email client - the Hotmail. SMTP servers are vital and necessary for any email service so that the program(we use to send emails) knows how to send the messages.


Therefore, you should make sure you're using the right Windows Live Hotmail POP3 settings if you want to receive email from your Windows Live Hotmail account.

Windows Live Hotmail Is Now Outlook

Windows Live Hotmail was Microsoft's free web-based email service and it was designed to be accessed via the web, from any machine on the internet. It was first used by a few thousand beta testers in 2005 and then increased up to millions more by the end of 2006.

However, the Windows Live brand was discontinued in 2012 when Microsoft introduced, essentially rebranding Windows Live Hotmail with an updated user interface and improved features. Email addresses could remain as but there was and is no longer a page dedicated to just Hotmailcom addresses.

Therefore, Outlook is now the official name of Microsoft's email service, formerly known as Hotmail and Windows Live Hotmail.
