phpMyDirectory is one of the best web directory scripts that I used. Fortunately, you can use your existing hotmail account in phpMyDirectory. In fact it is not limited to only hotmail, but to all free email service provided by Microsoft including live mail, msn mail, outlook.com email and even Live Domain.
To ensure it work, correct SMTP Server details are required.
Email setting page can be found by browsing
Setup → Settings → Email
The table below is the setting for using hotmail, live mail, msn mail, outlook.com email and Live Domain.
|Hotmail / Live / MSN/ Outlook||Live Domain|
|Send email with||SMTP||SMTP|
|SMTP User||<your email>@<domain>||<your email>@<your domain>|
|SMTP Password||<your password>||<your password>|
