How to Make Mail Proxy Settings in MS Office Outlook for Hotmail?


Hotmail is different from other email service. The POP3 is using SSL connection and SMTP is using STARTTLS connection. However, there's no STARTTLS option in Outlook Express so we need to use MS Office Outlook 2007 or above version. If you have no MS Office Outlook 2007 or above version, you can also use Thunderbird, and it's much more easily to make mail proxy settings in Thunderbird 
Suppose the proxy server IP address is 192.168.1.250 and the Hotmail address is youngzsoft@hotmail.com. 

Section 1 - Create port map rules in CCProxy 

1. Open "Options" dialog box and click "E" button to open "Port Map" dialog box (Figure 1).
