    hello there people, i was hoping someone could give me a bit of assistance.

    as the title of my post says... i'm having issues with sending emails from my desire via my hotmail account, there are no issues with me getting them as this works fine and the inbox is always full. i just can't seem to send or reply, i'm sure the settings are correct but i've added them below and would really be grateful for some help

    incoming:

    Protocol - pop

    put email address in and user name put email address in again

    put in password

    pop server - pop3.live.com

    security type - SSL port 995


    outgoing:


    tick log in required

    put email address in as username


    put in password


    smtp server - smtp.live.com

    security type - TLS

    server port - 587

    I'll be honest, I've seen loads of threads about hotmail recently. All I can say is personally I think its pretty poor. Have you thought about making the switch to gmail? You could even forward all your hotmail to it.

    Definitely used to be the case, but not sure if it changed recently. I always thought this was the case with UK.
