Before you get started, you must make sure that your Hotmail account is working perfectly fine. On top of that, you must have the latest version of an email client such as Outlook in your system.
Follow the steps below.
You must not see any error while sending an automated test email. If in the case you encounter an error follow through with the steps mentioned above from the beginning. The above settings are as per the IMAP if you aren’t able to send or receive an email then try to reconfigure the client as POP3.
You must have an active internet connection with no latency. You may have to disable the antivirus for a time being if your antivirus is disrupting the email client. Use the latest version of the email client. Keep updating the operating system as well. Don’t use any virtual private network as your Hotmail will work very slowly. Make sure that all ports are opened which Hotmail uses. Confirm it from your internet service provider.
