2.  How do I configure my Hotmail or MSN email account to work with IncrediMail?

 On October 1st 2004, Microsoft blocked access to Hotmail and MSN email accounts used in email clients such as Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Eudora or IncrediMail. Anyone who wishes to use a Hotmail or MSN account in any email client is required to pay Microsoft for this service.

If you would like to continue using your Hotmail or MSN email account in IncrediMail, you will have to pay Microsoft for their new service. On the other hand, if you would like to continue using an email account free of charge in IncrediMail, you can open a free POP3 email account with Hop Pop or any other POP3 email account provider you wish to use.

If you have a Hotmail or MSN email account and have purchased Microsoft’s new service, follow these simple steps to configure your email account with IncrediMail:

    1. In the IncrediMail main window, click the ‘Tools’ menu and select ‘Accounts.

    1. At this point, the ‘Mail Accounts’ dialog opens. Click ‘Add’ (marked in red) to create a new email account.

    1. At this point, the Account Wizard dialog opens. Select the ‘Let me configure settings myself’ option (marked in red) and click ‘Next’ (marked in blue).

    1. Please enter your name (as you would like it to appear on the email you send) and your email address in the appropriate fields and click Next (marked in red).

    1. Enter your Hotmail or MSN password in the appropriate field (marked in red) and click ‘Finish’ (marked in blue).

  1. You are now ready to send and receive email with your Hotmail or MSN email account.
