Live Domain & Mail / Hotmail SMTP Settings in phpMyDirectory

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.
