I have searched the web for the correct settings to be able to access my hotmail with Alpine email client - it is a program you use from the terminal (i am using Linux). So far I have no success. I have seen many examples for Gmail but no pop3 examples for hotmail. I know it is possible to access you hotmail via pop3 as I have 2 other programs that do it but the settings they use don't work in Alpine, has anyone had success?

For receiving set your Inbox Path to:

pop3.live.com:995/ssl/novalidate-cert/POP3/user=username@hotmail.com

For sending:

Use SMTP Server = smtp.live.com:587/tls/user=my_email@hotmail.com
