    I know you can use Outlook to check Hotmail but didn't know that you could use POP3. In fact I had heard that MS was going to stop allowing Outlook to check it anyway.

    Default A way to setup hotmail on zimbra

    I figured out a way but it might spam your zimbra with unread email... Common problem with pop on hotmail. heres the info

    the incoming server is: pop3.live.com
    fill up the personal information like your email and name and pass
    use SSL for the incoming server.
    for the outgoing server its kinda tricky.
    the SMTP server is : SMTP.live.com
    DO NOT USE SSL FOR THE SMTP SERVER.
    Here's the tricky part. The SMTP server uses another port. The port is 587.
    You have to check username and password required to send mail and then enter your email and pass. This should work
    Let me know if it works

    I've tried everything on this thread but still get an error: User account authentication failed!

    This is what I'm doing when setting up Zimbra, is it correct?


    Account Type: POP

    Account Name: My.Name
    Your Full Name: Full Name
    Email Address: My.Name@hotmail.com

    User Name: My.Name
    Password: Password
    Incoming Server: pop3.live.com
    Port: 995
    Security: SSL

    SMTP Server: smtp.live.com
    Port: 25 or 587 (tried both)
    Security: With SSL or Without SSL (tried both)
    Authentication: Use
    User Name: My.Name
    Password: Password
    Name: Full Name
    Email Address: My.Name@hotmail.com

    Try putting the "@hotmail.com" after the username and see if that works.
