    After doing alot of research and giving Bill Gates $20 for a hotmail plus account I should be able to send and receive emails with Apple Mail but im having problems. I can receive emails however I when I try to send I get an error saying my SMTP settings are not set. Not sure whats wrong. Please help.

    Settings:
    OSX 10.5.3
    Using a hotmail PLUS account

    Account type: POP
    Incoming Mail Server: pop3.live.com
    User Name: myemail@live.com
    Password: myhotmailpassword

    Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.live.com:myemail@live.com
    'Use only this server' is checked.
    Server Port: 25
    'Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)' is checked
    Authentication: Password
    User Name: myemail@live.com
    Password: myhotmailpassword

    Advanced:
    Port: 995
    Use SSL is checked
    Authentication: Password

    For those that will suggest httpmail, i tried it, I believe it no longer works.

    fixed my own problem. The message which was sitting in my outbox was linked to older settings that were not correct. I deleted the message and made a new one and it worked.
