problem:  How to check your or email address using Outlook 2003/2007





    NOTE: If you are moving from DAV to POP3, there are a few important differences. With POP3, there is no synchronizing. For example, if you read an e-mail message in Outlook  the message will be unread if you view your Hotmail account on the web. Also, only messages in your Hotmail Inbox will display in Outlook. Other folders, and any messages in them, will not be displayed.

    1. In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click Account Settings

    2. Under E-mail tab, click New.

    3. Choose Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP and click Next.

    4. Click Manually configure server settings or additional server types and click Next.

    5. Choose Internet E-mail and click Next.

    6. Under User Information type your name and email address.

    7. Under Server Information:

            Select the Leave a copy of messages on the server check box if you want to see your messages when you use Hotmail in a web browser, your mobile phone, or other e-mail programs. If you want to delete your messages from the Hotmail server after you read them, clear this check box. Click OK.

    12.     Click Test Account Settings.
    If the test is successful, click Next. If the test fails, check the values you typed in the previous steps.
