of Gmail and MSN mail.
*Update, 23rd of August 2009: Hotmail can now be connected to

SMTP server (outgoing mail server) for Gmail accounts. To use
the Google Gmail SMTP server, use the following information:
Google Gmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):
smtp.gmail.com
The Gmail SMTP server requires authentication (use the
same settings as for the incoming mail server)
The Google Gmail SMTP Server requires an encrypted
connection (SSL) on port 465.
Why & when do I need these settings?
Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, GMail and other providers are basically
email services designed to provide you with email mailbox
accesss directly from the web. However, going online and logging
on to their sites is not always the most convenient way for reading
and sending emails.
On the other hand, you have the alternative to send and receive
emails through such a mailbox by using a local email client
software, such as Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook,
Thunderbird, etc. In order to properly use it, you need to configure
your email software with the incoming and outgoing mail servers
of your email provider (Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail or else).

Mail Server Settings


Hotmail Settings
As other web based email services, Hotmail is using the HTTP
protocol for connecting you to your mailbox. If you want to send
and receive Hotmail emails using an email client software, then
your software must support Hotmail HTTP access for your email
account. Some email clients, such as Outlook Express or
Microsoft Outlook, offer builtin support for Hotmail accounts, so
you only have to select HTTP when you are asked to select your
email account type and select Hotmail as the HTTP Mail Service
Provider.
Mail Server Settings for Hotmail using the Microsoft Outlook
Connector
If you are using Microsoft Outlook & the Outlook Connector, you
can define your Hotmail account just like any regular POP3 email
account:

using Secure Password Authentification - SPA, mail server
port: 995)
Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com (TLS
enabled, port 587)
Yahoo! Mail Settings

incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite
email client software. To setup your email client for working with
your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and
use the following mail server settings:

(SSL enabled, port 465)
Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
