Hotmail to Gmail

Hotmail és un asco, pero hi ha molta gent que no s’entera i continua enviant-me correus a eixa adreça. Encara no deixen redireccionar bé, però buscant he trobat finalment aquest article i he decidit copiar i enganxar per a recordar-lo i tenir-hi accés si la pàgina original l’esborra. Passe de traduir. Per a això teniu l’ubiquity (del qual hauré de parlar algun dia)

Not too long ago, the Windows Live Hotmail team decided to add POP3 support for users in countries such as United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. If you are in these lucky countries you can finally stay away from hotmail.com and use your favourite mail client or in this case through Gmail! If you’re not in one of these countries then I guess you’ll just have to wait or try some 3rd party alternatives.

Here are the general settings you need for your mail client when setting up Hotmail for pop3 in your mail client:

POP server: pop3.live.com (port 995)
POP SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
SMTP server: smtp.live.com (port 25)
Authentication required? Yes (this matches your POP username and password)
TLS/SSL required? Yes

Inside gmail to add a new mail account follow these instructions.

  1. Click on Settings -> Accounts -> Add another mail Account
  2. Type in your hotmail email address
  3. Fill out all the details and make sure you add the “@hotmail.com” or “@live.com” at the end of your username
  4. Make sure the second checkbox is also checked, the others are optional
  5. Change the port number to 995 or you’ll get an timeout
  6. Click “Add Account”

Afterward gmail will ask if you’ll like to setup send-to permissions through gmail for your hotmail account.

Once everything is complete, just sit back and wait for you emails to be downloaded into your gmail!

  1. Menudo aporte el que acabas de hacer, me viene genial, porque yo estaba utilizando el lento pero útil complemento para el thunderbird.

    Muchísimas gracias por tu reseña.

  2. Pues seguire sin leer los correos que me envien a hotmail… A ver si recalo en uno de los países donde si tenga soporte para redireccionar…

  3. Thanks for linking to my post 🙂
