I can't log in into my Hotmail account, as I forgot my password for it aeons ago.
However, in my evolution email client I use port 110, and for SSL I (have to, my provider is not top class, Thunderbird says I have to speak to them ) use: No security.
I never had (so far) to alter these from email account to email account, but who knows

You are NOT wasting my time ....
