Finally!!! Microsoft have added IMAP support to Outlook.com (Hotmail) accounts.
Why it took them so long is anyone’s guess.
To set it up you need your email address and password and the following server settings:
If you want to use IMAP with Outlook.com, here are the settings to use in your email client:
- Server: imap-mail.outlook.com
- Server port: 993
- Encryption: SSL
- Server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
- Server port: 587
- Encryption: TLS
Hope this helps
