    Default Need help with setting up school email thru live.edu, have Outlook setup directions

    I thought I already posted this, but it does not look like it went through.

    I just installed Zimbra and got it working for my home email accounts just fine. I cannot get my school account set up, that uses Microsof's live.edu server. I have the directions for Outlook, bc that is the only thing the school knows how to help with. Hoping someone can help me translate them to Zimbra so I can get this set up. I have tried Microsoft's Exchange, IMAP, and POP.

    Here is the Outlook directions: Set Up Outlook 2010 for IMAP or POP Access to Your Email Account

    Here are the particular settings for my particular address and school:
    Use these settings to access your e-mail using POP, IMAP, or SMTP.

    POP setting
    Server name: pod51000.outlook.com
    Port: 995
    Encryption method: SSL

    IMAP setting
    Server name: pod51000.outlook.com
    Port: 993
    Encryption method: SSL

    SMTP setting
    Server name: pod51000.outlook.com
    Port: 587
    Encryption method: TLS


    Thank You!!!!

    Set up as a Microsoft Exchange IMAP

    Set up the imap server as stated. Set up the smtp server edit the port to 587 and make sure Use SSL encryption when sending mail is unchecked for the smtp server. This will allow the account to be set up. I know this works, as I also use a live.edu email account.
