hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

Question: hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

Hi. I have a similar problem. I don't have a Microsoft account, I don't want one. My Windows 8 E-Mail address is for the E-Mail account on the family webserver, and yet when I get the confirmation E-Mail, it links me to a hotmail/outlook login page.

hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account, how do I get past this aggravating obstacle?

Preferred Solution: hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

When Win 8 asks you to verify your account, it shows you your email address in one box with some of the characters replaced by *s and wants you to type in the email address in its entirety in another box. Once you do that, an email is sent to that address with a code for you to enter to verify.

There shouldn't be any confusion about which email address to enter unless you have 2 different but very similar email addresses.

Hello,

I have a Microsoft account and I am using it with Windows 10.

I want to use the Windows 10 built in Mail App.

It seem very nice.

I added multiple Gmail and Yahoo accounts without any issue.

But, finally, when I want to add more Hotmail accounts Windows 10 told me to use "Windows Hello" or something like that.

I really don't want that Windows adds ANOTHER USER in my computer, I only want to use MULTIPLE Hotmail/Outlook mails and their contacts and calendar!!!

I am afraid that it will add them as USERS of the computer, I don't want it!!!

PS: I found an half solution, I don't add the Hotmail account as "Outlook" account but as GENERIC INTERNET account. And it works. But I cannot use CONTACT and CALENDARS of it.

HiNot sure if anyone can help or have ideas, but I have done something rather stupid and silly.In my Hotmail account with Windows Live Mail, a folder and sub-folder has either disappeared, lost, deleted or whatever.When I use 'Sync' to check for any messages etc, the missing folder shows up in the 'checking mail panel', but not in my folder list. I have tried to add a new folder of the same name, but I then have an error message, saying the following: ""A folder with that name has recently been changed or deleted. Please synchronize your account and repeat this action.Configuration: Port: 0 Secure(SSL): 0 Code: 8de20005""Naturally, I have re-sychronised, but still unable to locate the folder. Also, I have tried to Google '8de20005' without avail.The question is - how do I retrieve my 'missing' folder?Regards

Answer:Windows Live Mail - Hotmail account.

try settings windows live mail up again as a new installation but with your normal sign in details - it might be then as it was.

I'm starting this thread to work on a WLM Hotmail POP account issue/question.
I feel continuing the conversation with Roderunner (George) and myself in the original thread is hijacking the OPs (Neelakantan) thread.
The original thread is Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F

George, hope you don't mind I started this thread, so we don't sidetrack Neelakantan's thread and issue.

This thread is my reply to your last post in the other thread:

Hi David, I managed to set up my Hotmail in WLM using POP. When I sent a message to it using my AOL account, it never arrived in it, but it did in my Gmail account.


I re-added a Hotmail account in WLM 2012 using POP3, and below are screen prints of the account setup.
I tested this and received 2 Test emails for this account - screen print included.

Can you compare your account settings to mine and make sure everything is the same?
Do you get any error message when you can't receive message(s) in the WLM POP account?
If you login to the Hotmail account using a browser (WEB access), is the message there?

Answer:Windows Live Mail - Hotmail POP account

Hi David,

Since confirming I successfully added my Hotmail using POP to WLM and tested it, (it worked) it has been removed from WLM as it gets very very few messages.
My settings were slightly different from yours.
On the Servers tab, I ticked 'My server requires authentication'
On the Advanced tab, 'Server Timeouts' was set to 5 minutes & everything below 'Delivery' was unticked.

I have also made changes to my other accounts.
Cancelled forwarding Hotmail to Gmail main account.
Gmail main account used to check my AOL mail account, its been cancelled.

My other Gmail is forwarded to my Gmail main account.

it checks my main Gmail, AOL & Hotmail for me. If their is mail for me in Gmail, I open WLM to read them.
If there is mail for AOL or Hotmail, clicking the addon opens their respective web pages.

Hello,

Twice a day someone or something is using my email account (I use Live Mail 2011 to access my Hotmail account) to send emails to everyone in my contacts list. Up until recently these emails had a blank subject line and in the body of the email had only a link (different each time) leading to various sites (most of which were dead/invalid). As of yesterday, however, people are telling me that I've been emailing them regular looking emails inviting them to join me in some social networking site, or health club site, or genealogy site etc. My main Internet Security Software is McAfee (it came preloaded with the computer) and Spybot Search and Destroy. Since those programs didn't detect anything I also downloaded and installed MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, SpywareBlaster, Lavasoft Ad-Aware (which I recently uninstalled because of compatibility issues), and HijackThis. Some of these programs found several occurrences of malware, but the problem persists nonetheless.

I followed all the instructions on the tutorial here, but gmer is crashing my computer. The first time I ran it it scanned for about 5 minutes before the screen turned blue and gave me a long message I didn't have time to copy down except for this : "A Problem has been detected and Windows had to shut down to prevent loss of data."

It seems to me that the only way I can access my Hotmail account with Windows 8.1 is by using Windows Live Mail 2012. I set up the Outlook.com account and that works fine, but the Hotmail account does not send or receive emails. I get 'logon messages' asking for my password all the time. I tried to set up the Hotmail account using the same WLM settings as on my desktop computer with Win 7, but the categories are not the same for Win 8.1 and the info cannot be entered. I have tried to follow the suggestions that I have seen in other threads, but they haven't helped.
Right now, I have the following settings for my Hotmail: My ID is my Hotmail address, along with my password that I use; the incoming server is POP3; the server field is pop3.live.com with SSL checked and port 995; the outgoing server is smtp.live.com with port 25, with the SSL box checked. My desktop computer WLM 2012 is set up as follows: the ID's etc are my Hotmail addresses and passwords, but there is a server URL....http://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/sync.aspx[/url] instead of outgoing and incoming servers etc. There is no Advanced tab here as in Win 8.1.
I hope my explanation is not too confusing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: Can't get my Hotmail account to work with Windows Live Mail 2012.

Why not allow hotmail to automatically setup

Also it works with the mail app as well

All Windows Live Hotmail accounts can be used with Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 or with Office Outlook 2003, whether you use a free or paid Windows Live Hotmail account. To use your Windows Live Hotmail account together with Outlook, you must first install the Microsoft Office Outlook Connector for Windows Live Hotmail.

Can you get back old Hotmail account, after having renamed it to new Outlook account?
Well here is Microsoft's answer on Reddit!

If you renamed your account, and want to rename it back to the original name, you can do that.
IMPORTANT: This may not work if you are outside of the US and have a "@live.com" or "@Hotmail.com" address!
First, remove the alias that was created when you renamed your account (the alias will be for the original name).
Go to http://account.live.com, select "Notifications" then "manage your email preferences" and you'll find links to remove aliases.
Second, go back to the Rename page, Sign In and rename back to the original name.

Hope it helps someone!

Hi - my first day here and am not techno savvy, so please allow for my ignorance!

I have outlook (formerly hotmail) and never use Windows Live Mail, yet I see (quite baffliingly) that I have some emails of mine that are on there...some from past years. (?) I never did anything to initiate the transfer of any emails here and have never logged in to Windows Live Mail. I don't really want it on my system if it is superfluous to requirements.

Does it have a use if you already have another email address set up? If so, please explain.

If not, how do I delete it from my system. Thanks.

Answer:Windows Live Mail - superfluous to outlook/hotmail? Deleting it?

You can get email in one of two ways. You can either go to the website and get your mail. The other way is to have the mail downloaded to your computer with WLM. If you use WLM you can get off the internet and read your mail. If you sell your computer and you did not delete the mail, the computer buyer can see your mail. If you have several email addresses, you can read them all in WLM. Do you need WLM? Based upon the information the decision is yours. Personally, I use WLM and only go to the website for my mail when I am not using my own computer. Any questions please ask.
If you want to delete it, go to control panel and look for Windows Essentials or Windows Live Mail. If you see WLM it can be deleted. If you see Windows Essentials, there may be other software that you would, also delete. You can go to Windows Essentials, on the internet and see what other programs may be included.

Hi geeks.

Long version:

An old Microsoft email account ([email protected]) from the days before Hotmail when you still could get @msn.com addresses. Account correctly set up in Windows Mail App on Windows 8 machines, no issues. Account has one outlook.com alias.

This was the only email address I have had without two step verification. Last week something happened which made to rethink my complete online / domain / email security. I both changed the password of this @msn.com account to a very complicated one and set up the two step verification using the MS Authenticator App for Windows Phone 8. Tested the set up by logging out and logging back in with the new password and as it should be, outlook.com asked for the authentication code. All was well and working.

Next step was to open Windows Mail App and change the account password there. As expected, the Mail App told me to check settings of this account, clicking the Check Settings link opened the credentials dialog. I entered the [email protected] as email address, and the new password. Got an error message telling the credentials were wrong. Logged out, logged back in, tried again, could not get the app to accept credentials.

Signed out from Windows, back in, relaunched the Mail App, removed the [email protected] account as nothing I tried with original @msn.com or newer @outlook.com alias did work. From account settings I added a new account, trying both the original @msn.com and the @outlook.com aliases. Wrong credentia... Read more

I held out and downloaded Windows 10 on the last day it was going to be free. I?ve been having some email issues ever since. Some have been solved; one has been a toothache.

Although Microsoft wants to wean people off of Windows Live Mail in favor of the built in mail interface in Windows 10, I want to keep using WLM.

I need two email accounts set up on WLM. One I have set, a IMAP account (a Time Warner Roadrunner account) which is working properly and the other an outlook.com email account which isn?t. (All the settings on the two accounts are IDENTICAL with the exception of the server names)

The OUTLOOK account is also set a IMAP and the setting are correct as I can send and receive emails?both properly going through the proper server and being able to be read in my hand held device and on the outlook.com web site.

The problem is I can?t get folders to populate in WLM on that account, so I can?t see (read) incoming mail from there, nor do I have a SENT folder to verify that my emai ?went.?

I have two outlook/Hotmail accounts. One I log into the PC with (which is pretty crappy by the way and is a huge hassle in Windows 10 IMO).
In the mail app, I was able to add the mailbox of the one I use, however I have a second email account through Hotmail that when I try to add the account to the mail app, it asks me to verify with a pin. I have never used a PIN with this account. I went to settings and sign in option, and have an option to change the pin, however it is wanting to change the main account that I log into the pc. The pin appears to be 4 digits (it only allows 4 characters before it auto enters) unlike the main pin which is 8 or 9 numbers.

Thanks in advance,
Bryan

Answer:Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

Hi Bryan, welcome to the Ten Forums.
The PIN the Mail app asks for the verification when a new / another Microsoft email account (Outlook, Hotmail, Live, MSN) is added is the PIN for the Microsoft Account you use to sign in to Windows.

An example: Let's say your Windows 10 sign-in MS account is [email protected], and when signed in using that MS account you want to add your second Microsoft email address [email protected] to the mail app. You enter the credentials for the [email protected], and when done, the Mail app wants to check you are really the user [email protected], the user currently signed in to Windows. To verify this you need to enter the PIN of the current Windows sign-in account, the one of [email protected]

I've only seen this to happen when adding any of the Microsoft's email accounts to the mail app. Adding for instance a Gmail account does not ask it.

Confusing, I have difficulties to understand myself what I just wrote! I hope you get it, though.

An example: Let's say your Windows 10 sign-in MS account is [email protected], and when signed in using that MS account you want to add your second Microsoft email address [email protected] to the mail app. You enter the credentials for the [email protected], and when done, the Mail app wants to check you are really the user [email protected], the user currently signed in to Windows. To verify this you need to enter the PIN of the current Windows sign-in account, the one of [email protected]

I've only seen this to happen when adding any of the Microsoft's email accounts to the mail app. Adding for instance a Gmail account does not ask it.

Confusing, I have difficulties to understand myself what I just wrote! I hope you get it, though.

Kari

Hello all,Been using Windows Live Mail for a while with no problems. It's set up to receive mine and my wife's email (both hotmail accounts), its been great as one click of the icon on the start menu loads it up with no log required etc.For some reason my account has stopped working, my wife's is still working fine. I have removed accounts, re-installed the live mail but the problem still exists. After her emails have come in it stalls on mine and the following message is given:Unable to send or receive messages for the Hotmail.co (my email address) account. To send and receive messages in your Hotmail account, go to click here on the Web, or try again later.

Hey! What's up?

So, I set up a limited account for my roommate on my computer, but for some reason, she can't sign into hotmail or Yahoo mail - it doesn't matter which browser she uses (IE or Firefox), all she gets when she enters her email addy and password is "This page cannot be displayed" (in IE) or "Unable to connect" in Firefox.

I tried my email addresses and got the same thing. I have no problem signing into Myspace or Livejournal or any other password-accessible sites, I have no problem surfing the internet, and I have no problem signing into my email using MY account on XP (which is an administrator account). But for some reason, those sites will not allow us to check our email on a limited account.

Any thoughts? Thanks for your feedback.

Hi, my name is jay.

I am receiving mails of size 181KB, a lot of them,
from different ids, even from the ids that are in my address book.
I cannot block them since this mails appear to come from_ids of my friends.

They contain some attachment, (probably virus) and the message part contains some three image placeholders named photo1, photo2 and photo3.

but really nobody is sending me such kind of mails.

some kind of automated programs are running that

they are coming back again and again at regular intervals.

Is there any solution to this prob., whether anybody have seen this problem earlier in hotmail.

I have been using BT for my emails for years now and never had problems using their yahoo.co.uk for web-mail and outlook 2007 on my computer. Following BT not using yahoo anymore and now just using BT Mail I installed the Hotmail Outlook Connector, so I can use outlook.com as web-email. I created a Mapi account in Outlook and copied all my contacts into it. I also created some additional send/receive e-mail addresses in outlook.com, they are BT sub accounts. They are showing up in both outlook.com and outlook 2007.
The problem I have that outlook.com and outlook 2007 will not send emails.
They either are stuck in the outbox or they come back with the following messages. The first one tells me "not to resend" as the mail is delayed.

Answer:Outlook 2007 not sending mail after installing the Hotmail Outlook Connector

If you have installed Outlook connector then you are not using outlook.com via webmail but are using Outlook 2007 for it. Webmail is through your browser. You should not be having any problems sending via the browser. You can also log into BT using the browser and send.
But coming back to your original problem I'm not sure why you set up a MAPI account or how you did it and the problem may well lie there. Suggest that you delete the hotmail/outlook account in Outlook and start again. You can back up the received emails first. The Outlook.com account should be an Exchange Activesync type.

newcomer just looking for an answer to: how one forwards their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?
 

Answer:How does one forward their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?

There are no such things as Outlook mail accounts (in the context of your question anyway). Your mail account is on a server where Outlook fetches mail from.

The better way to set up mail forwarding is on the server. If you have some sort of a web interface or a shell account, then you may be able to set the forward address yourself. Otherwise, talk to the mail server administrator.

You can set up mail filtering rules in Outlook too, which say that whenever Outlook receives a new message, it will send it so somewhere else. This approach is very bad though, since you would have to have your Outlook running 24/7 to keep the forwarding ability.

I keep having a issue with MS Outlook & Windows Live mail. I keep getting asked to enter a security code and other personal info that I don't feel I need to give to MS. I initially used a code number sent to an alternate e-mail address I had to open in order to receive the code, to verify my current e-mail account. I told MS I didn't want to keep doing this anymore, and either stop blocking my account or delete it. They still persist with requesting my personal info, phone numbers, creating alternate e-mail accounts and passwords, etc. I'm totally confused?

MS uses this catchall phrase to pump personal info on personal e-mail accounts: "Call us overprotective, but we want to make sure your account is secure?" Or we suspect someone "may be" trying to access your account? Yea me! WTH is this really all about? I also have had the same e-mail account for several years and never had any security issues or problems? Personally, I think its just a ploy to collect personal info for some use other than to make my account secure.

Its not like I have a business account with big bucks here for a hacker to make some quick money? The giving of personal info should be up to the individual account holder, not a requirement by MS.

Any solutions here? Should I save my e-mail account info to a flash drive or something and find another e-mail service provider that is less intrusive? If so, any other e-mail provider recommendations?

New Hotmail removes restrictions, allows forwarding messages to any other mail account -
As many of you have noticed, the recently upgraded Windows Live Hotmail allows you to forward your Inbox message to any other mail account and this is available to all including free regular accounts. Earlier there were restrictions where one could forward the message only to an email address that ends with hotmail.com, msn.com , live.com or is part of Windows Live Custom Domain. And this was available only for paid accounts of Hotmail Plus.
This is what we used to see in the earlier version of regular Hotmail account - (Click to view larger image)
Now with the New Hotmail this restriction is removed. And you get this -
To get to this option, sign-in to your Windows Live Hotmail, Click on options > More options?
and click on ?Forward mail to another e-mail account? to get the ?Forwarding? Window and type the mail ID to which it has to be forwarded.
So this is great news for all Hotmail users as this option is made available for all.

Hi.
I still have a Hotmail account I want to secure better. Right now all I have to do is enter my email address and then approve the login with the authenticator on my phone.
Well jeez.. talking about making it easy to break into my account! If someone knows the code of my phone, all they need to do is look at my iPhone info and they can see my email address. Then, simply enter the email address and approve it and BAM they're in!
At least Gmail asks for a password AND the authenticator code when logging onto an 'unknown' device. Or does it work the same way for Hotmail/Live/Outlook?
I prefer to always log in with my password initially. If I didn't have a password on my PC, they'd very easily be able to log into my Hotmail account, since 'stealing' a phone login code is very, very easy. People will just stand behind you, watch you tap your login and BAM it's game over. Sure, they'd still need to get a hold of my phone, but man, I just hate it that Hotmail switched it around.
You should always have to enter your password first, and an extra code from your phone as an extra.
I'm asking this specifically, because my Gmail has a Hotmail account as backup email address.
Thanks.

i have removed the email address as it will provide you with a lot of SPAM
There is no support number , for outlook/hotmail as far as I know, BUT that may have changed now with Windows 8 (when MS first started linking email accounts to PCs for login)
you can goto chat - and MS will assist via Chat service

If you have forgotten the password - goto another Pc that works
Login page for the account
Then click on forgotten password
you then have to either do
a) Enter the mobile number to get a text code to reset - these should have been set up when the account was first created
b) Enter the alternative email address to get a Code to reset - these should have been set up when the account was first created
c) Enter the answers to the security questions

If you cannot do any of these - then there is a form to try and rescover the account
You need to provide a lot of details, and on the three attempts I have tried this to help people, they have an email back saying not enough information and ended up changing to a new email address and never did recover - BUT Thats before this windows 8 and using MS password

so you maybe OK to use Chat line

What country are you in - you may have a support number - not sure it will be toll free
the UK is 0344 800 2400

I told the computer NO I do NOT want to "try" outlook go directly to hotmail when it started showing up upon log in. Well it ignored me and forced it on me anyway. At first it would let me just use that gear thing and tell it to switch back. It KEEPS doing it though? Is there a way to make it NOT automatically force the outlook on me? Something is wrong with it if I use the IE browser to get into my email. It lets me log in then sits there spinning its wheels indefinitely. I figured out to go use a different computer with firefox on it to log in so I could at least clean it out from all the junk but I am fed up now. Am I or am I not going to be aloud to KEEP hotmail. Will I eventually be forced to keep the outlook? I hate to have to do it but if that is the case I need to quick pull all my contacts etc and start using yahoo or something else that actually WORKS and lets me delete crap without opening it first!

Hi folks. I have seen this problem pop up now and then on these boards before and have tried all suggestions, but cannot get this to work. The situation:

I am on Bell South DSL. I have set up a wireless network with a Linksys router, model no. WRTG54C. I have a Dell desktop which is wired directly to the router. I have a Toshiba laptop which is connected wirelessly. On the laptop, I cannot access certain secure websites with password protection. For example, with hotmail.com, I can access the hotmail.com home page, but when I key in my account info and password, I get a "Page Not Found" error. I also use a site for work, Westlaw.com which requires a password. Again, I can get onto the westlaw.com home page, but when I try to access my account, "Page Not Found"

The desktop is able to connect to my hotmail account, and the laptop is able to access my hotmail account when I am on my neighbor's wireless network, so I'm guessing it's not a problem with the laptop's firewall or anti-virus software.

Through this forum, I have seen a suggestion to manually set the MTU setting of the router to 1492. This has not worked for me. I have tried setting the MTU to 1482, 1472, 1462, nothing works. Can anybody help? I've been through 5 different Linksys tech people and they are stumped (no surprise there). Thanks!

Hello helpful people,

I'm trying to migrate my Outlook Express email messages from my old XP laptop which suffered a motherboard death last week. I've got the hard drive connected via external enclosure to my Vista Ultimate 64-bit desktop. I didn't have any trouble getting Windows Mail to locate the .dbx files and import the appropriate folders, but when I add the "Account" column to the message view, there is no data in there. I've got 8 accounts funneling email into this program, so it's rather critical that I have the information readily available in the window.

I read somewhere that anti-virus software might be removing the data, so I tried the import with my anti-virus and Windows Defender both disabled and still no luck. Thinking it made a difference once before when upgrading my hard drive, I tried doing the import with all the account information set up under "Tools" --> "Accounts..." and then again without any set up at all. Same result both ways.

Anyone have any ideas how to get the import to include the Account column information? Much appreciated. Thank you!

It downloaded all the mails from my hotmail inbox and stored it in my computer as a .pst file removing all mails from my hotmail inbox, but now when i tried to export all these mails again to hotmail inbox i do not have any clue as to what I should do now. I am afraid if there are no ways to resolve this issue, Please put forth your suggestions. Thank you guys ! have a good day

I recently boought Office 2003 and I am having some trouble setting Outlook to open my hotmail account. Whenever I try to "Add new e-mail account" onto Outlook I go through the wizard and follow all the instructions (entering my e-mail account name, password etc) and it gets as far as transferring my hotmail files to Outlook and then an error window apears saying "the server responded 'access to Hotmail via Outlook and Outlook express now requires a subscription' please upgrade at http//upgrade.msn.com'".Ok I checked out that link and the only way to upgrade there is by paying a subscription (which I don't want to do). Also the funny thing is that a friend of mine just configured his Hotmail account to Outlook only a few days ago without a problem??Does anyone know how I can set up Outlook to my Hotmail without paying a subscription??

I am using multiple mail accounts at work, some of which require me to use access cards at specific work stations.

I wonder if there is a way to have MS Outlook to send me a notification from my mail account B to my primary mail account A whenever my mail account B recieves an email, because I simply have no time running back and forth between workstations checking for emails that may not be there anyway.

Because of security policies, I can not simply forward mails from account B to account A, so what I need is Outlook to email me a notification saying "an email has been recieved" - nothing about the subject and/or content of the recieved email.

This would be pretty much like the notification on for example smartphones saying "one new email", but for obvious reasons I can not access this account with my smartphone, nor would I be allowed to anyway.

Is this possible, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance!

I am running Outlook 2003 on Windows XP Prof. I installed Outlook Connector 12.1 and added my hotmail and MSN accounts. Both showed up in my mail folders list and both connected to the web and downloaded just fine.

When I tried to Send/Receive just my hotmail account, it was not listed in the Send/Receive group, so I checked the Email Accounts list. The hotmail account is not listed in my Email Accounts list (tools, Email Accounts, View/change), yet it is showing in the Mail Folders. I can send mail from that account if I hit reply on a received message but not if I try to select that account on a new message. I uninstalled Connector, and removed MSN from the list but I cannot remove hotmail as itís not on the list of accounts. When I try to close the folder (right click, close [email protected]) I get an error saying to use the Email Accounts list to remove it...but itís not on the list.

Any idea how to remove an email account that shows up in the Mail Folders but is not listed as an account in the Email Account list? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook Connector- remove Hotmail account

I_am_psYon,

Welcome to TSG!

Try this:

In Outlook's Account Settings window, go to the Data Files tab and select your Personal Folders and click Open Folder.

In the window that comes up you should see a file named emailid_hotmail.ost. Close Outlook and delete this file.

Reopen Outlook to see if Hotmail account is gone.

Hello,

By default, when adding hotmail accounts on Outlook using EAS, the account got added with FULL HOTMAIL NAME:
[email protected]

There was a process by which the left pane of Outlook showed any Name that user wanted.

Now with reconnecting Hotmail account in Outlook (going to Exchange), the same situation of FULL HOTMAIL NAME in the left panel has come up.

The older process (with EAS) does not work.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

I have a IMAP Hotmail account running on Outlook 2007 and suddenly it doesn't delete emails when I use the delete function on the toolbar and only sometimes deletes when I use the keyboard delete key, only then after going to another folder and coming back to my in box. I have tried running Account Setting again, even reloading my account. I used my Office 2007 disc to delete Outlook and reload it and still the problem persists. I have used Outlook 2007 and Hotmail for years without this problem. Has Windows 10 done something in an update that might cause this or what else could be my problem?

I recently loaded a pop3 Hotmail account to my Outlook 2010 since I was having problems with the MAPI Hotmail sending multiple copies of emails with large attachments. I am hoping the pop3 version will eliminate this problem; however, I can't seem to get the pop3 account to find my contacts and Contacts folder does not appear in the folder list. This is stressing my pea sized brain and I sure could use some help.

Thanks

For only the last week or so my mail has been staying on the Hotmail server and is not sent to my Outlook mailbox. As far as I know I haven't changed any settings or anything. When this started happening, I would get the occasional one or two emails come through and not the usual 20 - 40. Now they are all sitting on the Hotmail server when I go through from Internet Explorer.

I use a MacBook Air OS X.

Yesterday, my Outlook (2010) stopped retrieving e-mail from the Comcast server.  When I tried to fix it today, it still wouldn't work.  All the settings were correct, but it wouldn't retrieve my e-mail.  I deleted the account and recreated it.  Now, Outlook points to a new .pst file instead of my old Outlook.pst file, named [email protected]  To make matters worse, it doesn't delete the mail off the server.  Before, when I would open Outlook, it would download new message to my Inbox and delete them off the server.  The new messages would stay permanently in my Outlook inbox.  No more.  Now if I manually delete one through my Internet browser, it also deletes it out of my Outlook Inbox.  It’s as though the new account is just a window to the Comcast e-mail server.  I tried changing the Root Folder Path on the Advanced tab of the e-mail account settings to point to the location of my Outlook.pst folder, but that made no difference.  I also tried deleting a recent Microsoft update (KB3054976), but this did not help, either. This is a complete disaster for me, as I can't even send e-mail now, except through the server.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

Answer:Outlook 2010 e-mail account won't sync to Outlook.pst file

I figured this out.  When I reconfigured my e-mail account in Outlook, I used IMAP settings instead of POP3.  This was not how I did it before.  IMAP works great if one wants to keep all e-mail out on the server and access it from various devices.  That isn't what I do.  I changed the profile to POP3 and the poblem was solved.  Still don't know why it initially failed two nights ago, though.

How do I add my Hotmail account as the default mail account on Windows Outlook 2000.
I have scanned Windows support and all I can find is the download for the MSN.com browser which really defeats the purpose for what I have been looking for.
Does anyone know if there is a patch or add in?
Is there a simple way to convert outlook to support HTTP like outlook express can?
I look forward to your thoughts.
Cheers for now, Stew.
 

Answer:Making Hotmail your default Mail on Outlook 2000

Hi Stew

I had the same setup for my Yahoo email until they started charging for the service

You need to add your hotmail account as a POP 3 account.

I havent done it for a bit so I'm a bit rusty. A quick Google search found me this useful link (pics too):

http://pop3.reference.directnic.com/outlook2000.html

The only fairly tricky part I remember was when you get to the pop and smtp part. I think it should be pop.hotmail.com and smtp.hotmail.com but I can't be sure! I'm sure someone else will know for sure.

Remember,all messages are pulled down from hotmail into Outlook so if you login on the web your inbox will be empty.

Good luck and I hope that link explains it all.

Regards

Hi all,

I am having difficulty using my online hotmail/live/outlook.com account.

I can log on to my account and access my inbox, however when I try to open an e-mail, the browser takes me back to the mail home page (not inbox). Sometimes the mail will open briefly, but then reverts to the home page and use of the back button just repeats the process. On the very seldom occasion that the page will actually hold on the open e-mail, when I press reply I get taken back to the home screen again...
I have two linked accounts, one upgraded to Outlook and the other retaining hotmail status. I have the same problem with both accounts and had this problem before changing to outlook on the first account. In fact I have always had this problem since upgrading my laptop (VAIO SA Series).

I am running IE 8 on windows 7 Pro, 64 Bit. I have not experienced this problem on any other machine (and I use more variety than most). Incidentally, this problem does not occur on my machine when using Chrome browser.

The closest to a similar problem I found online suggested changing settings to use HTTPS, as my setting were already set to use this, I tried disabling it. I actually thought I'd solved the issue when I did a test, however the problem still exists today.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks,

SJ

Answer:Live Mail / Hotmail Accounts Broken in Outlook, again

Is Microsoft giving me the implicit message that I should switch to Gmail?

I'm supposed to know what I'm doing with mail but these past few days have just been a zoo of problems, the latest being that by merely re-instating one of my accounts in my local Live Mail Client program running under Win XP Pro, mail got vaporized.
gone.

Last time this happened [inexplicable Live Mail client interacting somehow with the server, ditched my inbox] I found the messages in the Deleted folder. Was able to salvage the important ones.
NOT this time.
The Deleted folder was mostly emptied [how?} and the inbox reduced from about 400 messages [not a big deal in terms of % of my allocated space] to 7. Where did the others go? I haven't a clue.
WHY?... ditto. I haven't a clue.

Because of the past trouble I had with phantom/random problems with the Live Mail client, I had switched back to OE6, and it worked flawlessly until last week, when like a lot of users, my accounts [I have three hotmail accounts] suddenly could no longer access the SMTP server - so nothing outgoing went out. So as a matter of survival, this morning I reinstalled one of these accounts in the Live Mail client application. I seemed to gag and slow way down, then after awhile looked OK, but when I checked my Inbox, it was mostly gone.

Any clues?

Dear reader,

Since last year we've been encountering problems with our outgoing mails to hotmail, outlook and live mailboxes. These are automatic mails generated by our system (webshop) and mails that have been send by employees. At first the mails came into the spambox
from our customers but since 3 weeks no mails arrive, not even in the spambox. I've checked the spamdatabases with our domain (www.plintenfabriek.nl) but it all checks 'OK'. Can anybody point me in the direction of a solution?
Thanks in advance!

I have always used windows live mail in the past with several email accounts on one screen which now keep being lost and do not sync properly since Microsoft started changing things.
My OS is Windows 7.
Now that Microsoft has changed my outlook account to Outlook EMail I want to use it with a few emails as I used to do with live mail but cant seem to do it.
I can open all my hotmail accounts individually using Outlook Email but want to have them all available on one screen. I can log into any one of my hotmail account with no problems but cant add any more accounts to the one I have logged into. Have tried lots of combinations of pop3, imap etc but always get messages like
"we couldn't connect to the server for your other account". which is that the one I opened or the one I want to add?
"make sure POP or IMAP have access." How do I do that?
"we are unable to reach your email provider" surely they are my provider?
I am also confused with the instructions to add an account as to which email address (aleady done or the one to be added) is being requested in which box.
Totally confused!!

I have cable, voice/phone and internet with Comcast. Do not know if I need to post three different threads or if they are connected or what. I have a Vista Business Pro 6.0 desktop computer. 2 gig ram. When I click on ie on desktop it takes me to my homepage of www.comcast.net. I stay logged in but email indicator was not working. Clicked on mail button and got error box: "you are not logged in as administrator on this computer. Try logging out and back in." I rebooted and still didn't work. Contacted Comcast and they said to not make them my homepage and put link in address bar instead. I put www.msn.com as my homepage. When it went to that, the whole page froze! Did task manager and shut it down. It keeps happening. Now, I cannot check either comcast or hotmail email!

So, I changed my homepage to yahoo.com. I can check mail there but still cannot at comcast or hotmail! Hotmail still freezes! I have cleared cache and cookies dailly. I also since got sp2 for Microsoft Office 2007, cannot get Outlook Express to work. Get error box stating: "cannot open outlook." I have gone into accounts for can open it up from start-programs-and my comcast addy is there. But, I cannot open it up if I click a link to email. Get the error message. What do I do about hotmail mail, which I've had since 1998 and outlook? Should I uninstall sp2 for microsoft office? It worked before the upgrade. Thanks.
