IMAP Settings for Outlook.com (Hotmail)

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:

Incoming IMAP

  • Server: imap-mail.outlook.com
  • Server port: 993
  • Encryption: SSL

Outgoing SMTP

  • Server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
  • Server port: 587
  • Encryption: TLS

Hope this helps
