Hey guys, I've read a lot of forum posts about troubleshooting problems regarding setting up hotmail in Entourage. I've tried countless solutions but none seem to work in my case. The problem seems to be that I can't send or receive mail (typical problem). POP server is pop3.live.com and I've entered my hotmail address and password. The smtp server is smtp.live.com I've tried many combinations of POP and smtp ports like, 110, 25 (respectively) Error message: -3259 225, 25 Error message:-3259 995, 25 -17897 I've also had Error message -16999 but I've forgotten which combination I had for that. In advanced options for POP server, SSL and Secure Password is checked; for smtp server, SSL and require authentication are checked. I've tried using the same settings as mail server and also logging on using my Account ID and Password. Also, I have a rule set up for send and receive every 1 minute (Entourage doesn't seem to like that; it wants me to do it every 15 minutes which isn't suitable). It seems like I've exhausted all possibilities and I still can't send or receive my emails! The odd thing is that when I initially set up my hotmail account, it was able to download all the messages from the server without a hitch. I really hope someone can help because this is stressful!
