Piano Lady 88

Verizon sent me an e-mail saying to change Outlook to port 587 for sending

mail, but when I try to adjust the settings in Outlook 2003 for a Hotmail

Account, I just get the Username/Password prompt from Outlook Connector and

it won't let me advance to more settings. I was able to change it for a

Verizon Account no problem.

Of course you can't change it for the Hotmail account. Verizon's information

was for a POP account using their service, not Hotmail's.

Thank you. I'll cross my fingers that there won't be a problem 2 weeks from

now when Verizon closes port 25.

Piano LADY becomes Cymbal MAN. Hmm, you're perhaps a hermophrodite?

You changed the e-mail field in each of your posts. Don't nymshift, a

behavior associated with trolls and spammers.

Verizon doesn't own Microsoft. Verizon doesn't own Microsoft's Hotmail

service. Verizon doesn't care about Hotmail customers connect to

Hotmail. Reread Verizon's e-mail. It only applies to THEIR e-mail

service. Verizon is telling you how to change settings in your e-mail

client for it to connect to /*Verizon's*/ SMTP mail server.

Also, you can't change the port for Hotmail since you defined an

HTTP/Deltasync account using the Outlook Connector add-on. If you had

defined a POP account in Outlook for Hotmail access then you can change

the port (and must change it from the client's default of 25 for SMTP).
