When setting up the account in the Fire, the default settings within the device seem to be wrong after the change with MSN, Hotmail, etc.. Use the "Other" email provider setting when adding your account  

Set up your email using the IMAP settings that the moderator directed us towards 

Use the following settings in your email app.

  • Incoming (IMAP) Server

    • Server address: imap-mail.outlook.com

    • Port: 993

    • Encrypted Connection: SSL

  • Outgoing (SMTP) Server

    • Server address: smtp-mail.outlook.com

    • Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked)

    • Authentication: Yes

    • Encrypted Connection: TLS

  • User name: Your email address

  • Password: Your password
