Help with live mail settings after crashed hd

I am trying to rebuild a Windows Live Mail account after a drive crashed. I've listed my non-working settings below.
My email address is username@live.com
Here are my current tab settings which are not working:
General:
Name: Username@live.com
E-mail address: Username@live.com
Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing is checked
Servers:
Incoming mail: imap.live.com
Outgoing mail: smtp.live.com
Log on using clear text authentication is checked.
My server requires authentication is not checked
Advanced:
Outgoing mail (SMTP):25
Incoming mail (IMAP): 143
Secure connection (SSL) is not checked
Do any of you see the problem? I appreciate your time with this.

Try these settings and see if it helps:

For the incoming server, select IMAP from the dropdown.
For the incoming server address, enter imap-mail.outlook.com and change the port number to 993.
Select Requires a secure connection (SSL).
For Authenticate using, select Clear text from the dropdown.
For Log-on username, enter the full email address.
For the outgoing mail server address, enter smtp.live.com and change the port to 587.
Select Requires a secure connection (SSL) and Requires authentication.

I can't thank you enough for your help. I've spent hour after hour on this thing and it's been driving me crazy. You've really made my day. I was looking for an alternative to Live Mail and didn't like anything I found. Your help is sincerely appreciated.
