em Client can’t download my hotmail email - i need IMAP settings for hotmail
Unfortunately Microsoft is phasing out the support of AirSync, the only way to set up your Hotmail account now is via IMAP until Microsoft transitions to Exchange.
Go to Accounts, create a new account. Instead of using the automatic setup, click on Mail and select Other. You’ll then be prompted to enter your credentials and incoming and outgoing mail servers.
Enter “imap-mail.outlook.com” and port 993 in the incoming mail server settings and “smtp-mail.outlook.com” and port 587 in the outgoing server settings.
After you’ve done that, go to IMAP tab in your account page and set your security policy to “Use SSL/TLS on special port (legacy)”, then navigate to the SMTP tab and set your security policy to “Force usage of SSL/TLS”.
thanks very much David - this worked for me
