     We developed a DNN email marketing module which is called "Cross Bulk Mailer 5.5 - DNN 7 newsletter & email marketing module, Amazon SES support".  It is an enterprise-level email processing module which helps you to send over 10,000,000 mails easily. These days there are some customers asked us how to use outlook.com mail account to send bulk mails in that module, and we post a guide at http://dnnmodule.com/Forum/tabid/57/f.... Then we realized that it may also useful in normal DNN SMTP server settings, so we also post this thread.

      Outlook.com is a free, personal email service from Microsoft. It has become increasingly popular today. To send mails using outlook.com SMTP server in DNN, please follow below steps:

    Step 1. Open http://www.outlook.com, click "Sign up now" to register a outlook.com mail account if you don't register before.

    Step 2.  Log in with your account, click "Options" or directly open https://snt153.mail.live.com/mail/opt..., then click "Connect devices and apps with POP".

     It will show a new window, check on "Enable" option which under "POP" section, this will allow you to retrieve mails using 3rd email client applications.

   
      Step 3. Open https://sms.live.com/, enter your mobile number, and select a country, to verify your account.  This will help MS to trust your outlook.com account, so you can send mails using external applications (like DNN, like Cross Bulk Mailer module).

    
     Now everything is ready, you can create a SMTP server based your outlook.com account, and send mails in DNN. 

     Click DNN built-in menu "Host - Host Settings - Advanced Settings - SMTP Server Settings", enter SMTP server information as follows:
     SMTP Server and port:                smtp.live.com:587
     SMTP Authentication:                  Basic
     SMTP Enable SSL:                         check on
     SMTP Username:          your outlook.com account, e.g, [email protected]
     SMTP Password:           your outlook.com account password
     Number of messages sent in each batch: 10
   
    Tips: why we only enter 10 as "Number of messages sent in each batch"? This is because Microsoft is very sensitive about spam mail, it doesn't trust new registered accounts. If you send too much mails (and send too frequently) at the beginning. MS will think that your account is a spam account, and will block your account. So it is better to send a small number first, wait 1-2 months, then increase the mail sending quantity (e.g, enter 50 as "Number of messages sent in each batch"). Check below image as an example:

     I am sorry, it seems I posted this post too quickly. Today a customer told us that he followed this guide to configure outlook.com SMTP server in DNN. First it works well, however, when he tried to send about 10 mails with it, his outlook.com  account was blocked by MS, and he had to verify his phone number at http://sms.live.com again to remove block.  After that, he tried to send another 5 mails, and was blocked again. Very frustrated.

     So in summary, it seems it is not a good idea to use free mail services (like outlook.com, GMail, Yahoo mail) to send mails in DNN, because these email services don't like 3-rd applications, and they are very sensitive about spam mails.  It is better to use your own SMTP server.  When you register a domain name, the hosting provider should provide a mail server to you (for example, mail.DnnModule.com).  These SMTP server are more reliable than free mail services in most cases.
    
     So just ignore the above guide which I posted. I am sorry about that.
