Finally Hotmail Rolls Out POP3 Access To Everyone

Windows_Live_Logo Windows Live Team has announced that it rolled out POP3 access of Hotmail to all the users across the globe. They have been rolling out this feature for a while and now everyone has got the POP3 access finally.

Want to setup hotmail access on your desktop or mobile device? Here are the details you need to configure POP3
POP server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
POP SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
SMTP server: smtp.live.com (Port 25)
Authentication required? Yes (this matches your POP username and password)
TLS/SSL required? Yes

I feel that its too late and too little from Microsoft. GMail has POP3 access since many years and new features are added to it very often.
