SMTP stands for "Simple Mail Transfer Protocol" and it allows you to send emails from your own computer without using an email provider like Gmail or Outlook. This article will show you how SMTP works on Hotmail and how to set up the SMTP server so that you don't have any issues with sending emails in the future.

SMTP on Hotmail

What is SMTP?

SMTP stands for "Simple Mail Transfer Protocol" and it allows you to send emails from your own computer without using an email provider like Gmail or hotmail.co.uk. SMTP is a crucial tool in the SMB world when communicating with employees and customers.

Key Benefits of SMTP: 

- SMTP allows you to send emails without using an email provider like Gmail or Outlook - this saves time, money, and hassle so that all your messages are sent from one place!

- SMTP also provides security measures for your data which means less spam mail getting through to your inbox 

How to Configure SMTP on Hotmail

  • To start, go into the "Mail" tab and click "Options." Then select the list of mail accounts that you have. Find SMTP under one of your two or three email addresses. If SMTP doesn't show up in this list then scroll down until you find an option for custom settings
  • Click on SMTP and make sure all fields are correct; domain name, username, and password will be automatically filled out if they're right
  • Enter 25 as the port number because these days most businesses use SSL encryption which only uses ports 465 (for secure) or 26 (less secure). Select whether to always send from SMTP or to send when the email is sent in reply and then click "OK"
  • Now, go back into your mail settings menu under Options. Click on SMTP again and scroll down until you see an option for advanced SMTP server options
  • This section makes sure that the SMTP Server has a green dot next to it, which means it's enabled. Fill out all of the fields with correct information - IP Address (for example 217.160.0.38), port number 25 as before, authentication method "Log in," username and password should be automatically filled out if they're right
  • Press save; now Hotmail will use SMPT instead of its own service! It may take up to a day for SMTP on Hotmail to start working correctly
  • If Hotmail still isn't sending emails, try changing the port number again or using SSL encryption. SMTP is easy if you know how!

Summary:

SMTP can be tricky in Outlook, but with this article, it will be simple. Find out how SMTP works and what settings need to be correct before implementing SMTP into your inbox
