Bigpond outgoing server email settings for Windows Live?

Hi, I am trying to set up  a new email account on a desktop computer using Windows Live.


I have an email address associated with my domain name, and have used as the outgoing mail server. 


It says to use as the outgoing mail (SMTP),  so I have used, and outgoing mail (SMTP): 25


Are these the correct settings please?  Nothing is working ......

Re: Bigpond outgoing server email settings for Windows Live?

I would enquire with the supplier of your domain name as to what your settings should be.


Bigpond's default mail server is (currently) on port 25, but I don't know under what circumstances you can use it (ie: IF you must use your bigpond email account to authenticate before sending emails).
