Cant Send From Thunderbird Using Hotmail Account

Using Tbird Ver 17. When sending it states "SMTP server smtp.live timed out" Outgoing Server settings are: Server Name; smtp.live.com Port; 995 Auth Method; Normal Password Connection Security; SSL/TLS

Any ideas?

Thanks Lotvic

I can only set security to either SSl/TLS, None or Starttls, NOT SSL alone. Where is the option 'Server requires Authentication' to tick?

Hang on, think I've cracked it. Tried with STARTTLS and it's sent. What the 'ell is STARTTLS and why has no one else mentioned using it?
