Outlook Express And Msn.com Email

  M4D 22:40 17 Mar 2003

Does anyone know how to put a @msn.com E-mail account into outlook express 6!

I've never come across any problems before with hotmail /lycos mail ext until today!

I have signed up for a msn.com email address just today because my hotmail.com account is getting a little full! So I need somewhere to save some of my saved emails!

And help would be apreciated!

Depends what ISP you are using.( I am not offering anything other then a novice's view by the way). But I had problems setting up OE when I had AOL. Later discovered that they are not compatable. If you search back through the postings you'll find similar discussion.

i have a msn account and outlook express 6.outlook express does not support msn mail.however if you get msn messenger click here and then in outlook exp. go to tools/options/general tick the box saying automatically log on to windows messenger it will start it up with outlook express.open messenger and click tools/options/accounts and make sure that sign in with this account first is set to .net and my contacts include members of a communications service is unchecked or it wont work.i have tried to set it up to automatically get the msn mail using the tools/acounts/add mail option in outlook exp.but it throws up an service unavailable error.checked in windows support forums and was told it does not support.please correct me if anybody knows otherwise.

Does anyone know the address of the mail servers for @msn.com emails! Because i would have thought with it using hotmail then it should be just the same as the @hotmail.com servers but they dont work...

Or is it just that getting mail through outlook express simply doesnt work !!
