Incoming and Outgoing Mail Server Settings for Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, GMail, MSN, AOL and more

Google Gmail service offers a 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

client access for retrieving and sending
emails through your Gmail account.
However, for security reasons, GMail uses
POP3 over an SSL connection, so make
sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.

supports the IMAP protocol. AOL Incoming Mail Server (IMAP) -

protocol.

If your email client does not support
Hotmail as a Mail Service Provider or if it
simply doesn't work with your mail server
settings, you can use a 3rd party solution
like Hotmail Popper, IzyMail, POP Peeper or Email2Pop. When using such tools, you should define your Hotmail account
as a POP3 account and you will need to
define your incoming mail server will as
'localhost' (or 127.0.0.1).
