Since support for Poptray is discontinued ... I recommend using PoptrayU instead. Make certain when you install PoptrayU, that you select to also install the SSL plugin when it prompts you.

Poptray and PoptrayU are not full email clients... so SMTP ( for sending emails ) is not supported.


You will first need to enable POP3 access in the settings on your Hotmail account when you are online.

Incoming (POP3) Server

Server address: pop-mail.outlook.com
Port: 995
Encrypted Connection: SSL
