Windows 7: Can't send email via Outlook while in WinXP Virtual Mode

25 Oct 2011   #11

Win7 Ultimate x64


Thanks for hanging in there with me in an effort to resolve the problem of not being able to send or receive mail in Outlook 2003 in XP Mode.

When I come to the screen that you picture above, namely the second one on the right where "More Settings" is encircled, the Server Information is already filled in, its reads "Hotmail" because I am using my hotmail account and not a pop 3 account. When I click More Settings, and come into another screen where the first tab is General; there Hotmail is again already filled in. There is nothing to change.

Sorry that I cannot yet attach thumbnails. I haven't installed a program for that in XP Mode. I will do that.

Re: Your problem is most likely hotmail, I don't use hotmail but something tells me that there is a configure option when you log onto hotmail to allow remote access. I know in gmail there is to allow pop. Sorry can't be more help there.
BTW: the snipping tool in windows 7, if you put it on the task bar, will allow you to mark and capture parts of your xp screen. that's how I captured the screens for my prior posts.. I love the snipping tool.

I think you are right. The problem is probably Hotmail. I prefer using Outlook to access my hotmail account but if its not possible in the XP Mode its not terribly disappointing. I have Outlook 2010 in Win7 on my host machine.

I didn't know that there is a snipping tool in Win7. How do I access it?
