Simple Setting To Send Mail As Hotmail (smtp.live.com) In Gmail

Now, the new feature has been introduced in the Gmail which allows you to send mail with a custom domain SMTP server. This feature in the Gmail helps you to send mail with the custom “From:” Your actual Gmail e-mail address could now be concealed with this feature. The recipients will see the different email address having the domain name other than Gmail.

If you would like to configure your Gmail so that it would send the mail via outbound SMTP server of Windows Live Hotmail, then just go through the following Hotmail SMTP settings.

SMTP server: smtp.live.com
Port: 25
Username: [username]@hotmail.com
Password: [password]

Always use a secure connection (SSL) when sending mail: Yes (Check)
Sometimes, when you add the above given SMTP configuration intended for Hotmail in Gmail, you’ll be most likely prompted with the following error massage:

“Couldn’t reach server. Please double-check the server and port number.”

If you try to change the SMTP port to 587 will also pop out the same error. When you add a port 465 try to connect, Gmail will hang for a while when it goes to check credentials. After that, it finally displays the following error massage:

“Your other email provider is responding too slowly. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of your other domain for further information.”

After all these errors we could finally note that there is an issue or a problem with Gmail service so that it can’t connect and access to smtp.live.com via SSL. Therefore you have to fallback with the unsecured connection of Windows Live Hotmail SMTP server having the port 25.

So, to send the mail with your custom Hotmail identity you should untick and uncheck the setting of “Always use a secure connection (SSL) when sending mail” and then ensure that the SMTP port is 25.

How Can I Send Large Email Attachments In Outlook Express

How to send extra-large attachments using Outlook Express

Most of the mail services available on the web today have an upper limit on the size of emails that you can send and/or receive. For most of the services nowadays the limit is somewhere around 20 to 25MB (it is 20MB for Rediffmail and Yahoo!Mail, whereas it is 25MB for Gmail, and a mere 10MB for Hotmail).

Ten years ago, a 25MB attachment limit would have been a dream for most, but with increasing bandwidths and needs, this is not enough for today’s customers. So what do you do if you want to send a file across email which is larger (way larger) than 25MB? This article will show you a cute little trick that allows you to send such large files through Outlook Express.

Simply follow through the steps given below.

  1. Run Outlook Express.
  2. Navigate to Tools -> Accounts to open the Internet Accounts window.
  3. Go to the Main tab, and select the mail account that you use.
  4. Click on Properties.
  5. A dialog opens up, containing various options for configuring the mail account properties. Go to the Advanced tab in this dialog.
  6. Under the Sending heading, select the option for Break apart messages larger than, and use the arrow to set a suitable upper limit.
  7. Click on Apply.
  8. Click on OK.
  9. Exit the Internet Accounts window by clicking on Close.

After this, Outlook Express will break up all attachments that are larger than 20MB (if that is the limit you set) and send the mail in parts. The recipient will receive the email in parts and on downloading the parts; they will automatically combine to become a single file again.

Another option is to use some of the services available on the web – such as YouSendIt, Transfer Big Files, SendThisFile, and so on – that sends your extra-large file across the internet for you.
