    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    With Ubuntu 9.04 and Evolution 2.26.1 I found the following settings work with live.com emails.

    Go to Edit/Preferences and edit your email account.

    Identity tab
    Full name - enter your email address xxxxxxx@live.com
    Email address, ditto.

    Receiving Email tab
    Server Type: POP
    Server: pop3.live.com
    Security: SSL Encryption
    Authentication type: Password and remember password.

    Sending Email tab
    Server Type: SMTP
    Server: smtp.live.com
    Tick the box Server requires authentication
    Security: TLS encryption
    Authentication: PLAIN
    Username: xxxxxxx@live.com
    Tick the box remember password.

    Everything then seems to work fine.

    Question Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    Not starting internet superserver: no services enabled.

    E: Directory '/var/log/apt/' missing

    is the message i get after trying the second step this /var/log/apt/ missing as been common as of late - running on easypeaze 1.5

    no other distro has given me this message other than this messege the netbook works out of the box fantastic

    any ideas on how to correct this or should i just mkdir /var/log/apt
    and try again

    Lightbulb [SOLVED] HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    Go to Edit/Preferences and edit your email account or (Shift + Ctrl + S)

    Identity tab
    Full name - enter your Full Name
    Email address - enter your email address xxxxxxx@live.com

    Receiving Email tab
    Server Type: POP
    Server: pop3.live.com
    Security: SSL Encryption
    Authentication type: Password and remember password.

    Sending Email tab
    Server Type: SMTP
    Server: smtp.live.com:587
    Tick the box Server requires authentication
    Security: TLS encryption
    Authentication: PLAIN
    Username: xxxxxxx@live.com
    Tick the box remember password.

    Notice the port 587, it makes the difference with the TLS encryption.
    Hope this helps everyone!

    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    damn! this has pissed me off for the last time haha!

    every now and then when fetching mail it start fetching like 50 some-odd messages. All of which are already in my inbox. so then i have 'new/unread' messages, filed by date with everything else, all over my inbox. it just happened like 6 times these past two days!

    anyone have a fix for that?

    wow perfect, I've been playing around for an hour trying to find out how to input my password, putting the TLS/SSL encryption and port 587 and pressed Send/Receive and it prompted me for a password. Your the man!

    Hiya:

    I have followed all the amentioned steps, including the port 587 step, but every time I try to send mail, I get:

    Code:
    Error while Sending message.
    
    Could not connect to smtp.live.com: Connection timed out
    Is this related to Evolution? Or is it a connection-net problem? I also have a memory leak problem, could that have triggered this window?
