where does mac mail pull its address book intelisense?
I have started my Graduate program will Keller Graduate School of management. As I have done this, I needed to set up an email account with them. I decided to set up a completely separate account for all of my school work. Keller has emails provided from live.com. Formerly hotmail.com. As this is a microsoft product, it is not the easiest thing to set up for an apple product, say an iphone. So my solution was to use the above page and use those settings for all of my outgoing mail on whatever device, platform I chose. Iphone for one and my macbook for the second. I send all of my mail through those smtp settings but I pull all of my mail down to my devices with a specific gmail account since it supports Imap. Once the gmail has it, my macbook updates every 5 minutes and my phone updates every 15 minutes. Gmail will even support sending through live.com smtp server. That would make it so I don’t have those stingy mail headers saying this message is sent on behalf of so and so. I chose to use live.com smtp because it seems to be faster.
Taken from Microsoft’s website:
If the program you’re using isn’t listed above, use the following information to set it up to get your e-mail:
These instructions include the POP3, IMAP4, and SMTP server names for e-mail accounts accessed online using the outlook.com Web site. If you use a different address to access your e-mail on the Web, such as your organization’s Web address, you need to obtain the correct POP, IMAP, and SMTP server names from someone who manages your e-mail account.
User name Enter your user name (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Password Enter your password.
Authentication Use the same user name and password to authenticate with the incoming or outgoing (sending) e-mail server. Don’t use “Secure Password Authentication”.
POP server Enter the name of your POP server. If you access your e-mail account online using the outlook.com Web site, enter outlook.com.
IMAP server Enter the name of your IMAP server. If you access your e-mail account online using the outlook.com Web site, enter outlook.com.
SMTP server Enter the name of your SMTP server. If you access your e-mail account online using the outlook.com Web site, you can find the SMTP server name by signing in to the Outlook web application at the following address: https://pod51000.outlook.com/owa. After you sign in successfully, the address you entered will resolve to an address that contains the SMTP server name you need to use. For example, if the address resolves to https://pod51005.outlook.com/owa, enter pod51005.outlook.com for the SMTP server name.
Outgoing server (SMTP) port number Most Internet e-mail programs and e-mail servers are set up to send e-mail through port 25. This usually works just fine. But, in some cases, sending mail through port 25 may result in an error, or sending mail may just not work reliably. In those cases, you can try to change the outgoing port setting (also known as the sending port or SMTP port) in your Internet e-mail program from 25 to 587. If you still can’t send mail after trying both ports, contact the person who manages your e-mail account.
SSL and TLS for encryption Select Secure Sockets Layer for incoming POP and IMAP connections. You may need to edit the port numbers in your e-mail program. The correct port setting for SSL using IMAP is 993. The correct port setting for SSL using POP is 995.
For outgoing SMTP connections, select Transport Layer Security encryption.
SSL and TLS are methods to help secure communications between your computer and the e-mail server. Some e-mail programs refer to SSL or TLS as “encryption”.
In most e-mail programs, you need to open an “Advanced” setting or tab to set SSL for POP and IMAP connections and TLS for SMTP connections. Make sure you don’t confuse SSL with “authenticating connections”. Some e-mail programs include a check box for setting up authentication the first time you set up your account.
