    I have a hotmail.co.uk account set up on the HTC mail app with a widget on my home screen.

    The only problem with this its that i receive emails straight away i can access any attachments and view the majority of them which is great, however when i try to send, it attempts then after a minute or so it comes up unable to send mail. i have tried changing the priority of these emails for high to low but have no luck.

    my settings are:

    incoming
    Protocol: POP
    POP server: pop3.live.com
    security type: SSL
    server port: 995

    Outgoing

    SMTP server: hotmail.co.uk
    Security type: SSL
    server port: 465

    Try this instead...

    Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com (SSL enabled, port 25)

    Outgoing Server of Hotmail also supports port 587, useful for people who encounters error for STMP due to ISP blockage or any other reason

    I have just tried that and have tried 3 ports: 25,587,465. but still having no luck

    The warning message i get from this is 'Cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. Your server is not responding.'

    Some OS's don't like ports under 1024, try one above that and see if that helps.
