My hotmail email account in the Nokia 930 shows an error "Your Hotmail settings out of date"

Question: My hotmail email account in the Nokia 930 shows an error "Your Hotmail settings out of date"

I had several hotmail accounts that I could view in the Nokia 930 windows 10.
I have not installed any apps (however there wsa an app that I do not know what was doing there with the text showing @\user\microsoft\windowsapp\ etc. the text was longer an I was not able to remove the app)
However the problem of the emails did not arise after the above app was mysteriously installed but happened before.
It looked like that one specific account was inexplicably confused with another email account...e when I was tapping on one Icon app of hotmail account I would actually read the email of another account.
My main Email setup account within windows phone setup had disappeared and when trying to re added it was saying that it was already setup.
Therefore I could only but hard rest my phone. I have hard reset it four times now and every time I setup the account with my main Email account everything is fine but when I add another email account it all goes wrong with similar variations of the above issue and now I even have an error message saying the account the I added
Now I am getting has the settings out of date. I tap FIX button there is some activity but nothing happens.
How can I fix this!!!

Preferred Solution: My hotmail email account in the Nokia 930 shows an error "Your Hotmail settings out of date"

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How to export contacts from hotmail to any email account (without outlook or paying for a premium service). Follow the procedure step by step, it takes 15 minutes.

1 Go to ?contacts? in hotmail. Highlight names and addresses with the mouse. Copy all the names and the email addresses.
2 Put the selection on a Word sheet. Highlight all again, go to the ?table? menu and choose ?Convert text to table? (attention, check the option ?commas?).
3 Go to ?save as? and under the option ?files of type?, choose ?plain text?
4 Open Microsoft Work spreadsheet or Excel
5 And using Work spreadsheet or Excel open the file previously saved as plain text
6 Now you have two columns. Insert a row at the top. In the first column write Name, in the second E-mail, in the third Notes (exactly like here, attention to the capital and plural)
6 Go to ?save as? and under the option ?files of type?, choose ?.csv?
7 Open Gmail, go to contacts and on the top right you will see ?import?. Now you browse and you choose the file saved as .csv.
8 Look what a miracle

I had used this app for quite a while. I like seeing the pop-up notifications when emails arrive. Now I get notifications that my email account settings are out of date. Sometimes multiple times in a day. I will enter my email password only for it to come back minutes later.
I have tried removing that account and making a new one. No change. Even tried advanced setup without success. One thing I have also noticed is I am unable to modify my email account sync settings. It is grayed out. Not sure if they are related. It almost appears the app is corrupted. In reading posts elsewhere on the Win10 email app is buggy. Is there any hope in making it work?

Other than fixing this issue , one of my goals is to get this working for my elderly father working with a Win10 tablet. If there is a better app for doing emails on a tablet I am open.

Answer:Windows email app - "Account settings out of date"

With the current situation at Yahoo I strongly advise that you stop using Yahoo Mail at once - other than the well known serious password security breaches they are currently going through a company breakup (maybe asset strip is a better term)

The likes of Gmail and others have options to transfer your email data from Yahoo to a new account which will be a lot safer

As for tablet use - I use several android devices - and a catch all Gmail account, (multiple email accounts with multiple providers are polled and channelled through the one Gmail account),

This account uses IMAP so that whatever device I check my mail on and with whatever mail app or directly using a browser the information is synchronised

Answer:How can I fix your hotmail account settings are out of date?

And it will keep reappearing :) you can try to remove the accounts and add them again, you can just simply go through the "fixing" procedure or you can leave it alone for about 30 minutes or so and then check your mail.
Lately I've been ignoring it and checking my emails at a later time and it works fine

Some weeks ago I opened a new Hotmail account with the sole intention of using it just to acquire a Windows Live ID and to use for notifications from MS forums.
This account has never been disclosed to anyone ever and yet it has started to receive spam... fake Rolex watches, pills and potions etc. I never open any and just delete them.
I believe Hotmail has a reputation for spam, and my experience seems to confirm it.
I reported this on the appropriate Hotmail problems link and it was looked into and the reply was to the effect that "we don't know why this happens but it just does".
I have a similar Gmail account that has never ever receieved one single spam email in 2.5 years.

Hi everyone,

I've been searching for a way to remove the "sent on behalf of" line on Hotmail. Whilst using hotmail to recieve and send from my domain site email address it always adds this extra part in which looks pretty unprofessional. But I've read that this is to avoid spamming problems etc.

Is there a way around this in hotmail? I've read that there is now a way around in Gmail with your domain STMP details.
So I'm not sure what people usually do in this situation? I use hotmail so I can get email alerts as they come through. It's just this "on behalf of" add on I need to get rid of.

Any ideas much appreciated thanks.

This frequently happens both to me, in email directed to me, and to email which I direct to other who are also MSN subscribers. This is what happens: I send an email to another MSN subscriber, for example: '[email protected]'. It bounces back with "no such email address as '[email protected]'. Somewhere during the transmission "hotmail" has been added to the suffix of the address. The same thing happens to others in sending messages to me! Has this happened to any other MSN subscribers among the readers here and does anyone have an explanation?

Clicking on this splash sends me to another popup that I don't want that gives me an option to "fix" my account. When I click on the"fix" box, I get a popup that tells me I need to update my password. I've changed my password several times, but that doesn't stop this aggravating popup telling me that my Yahoo account settings are out of date. This morning, I just entered the last password that I had set up for yahoo and was sent to a Yahoo email page that I did not want and do not use. I "X"d out of that page and invoked my regular Yahoo mail account that I am familiar with.

The Hotmail message "We can't connect to Hotmail right now. Please make sure that you're connected to the internet and try again." seems to appear all the time.

Is this caused by poor internet speed, because I've got that, or is it something with google chrome, the browser I'm using? When I'm using the Hotmail mailbox it seems to work okay, but this message appears, seems like, every time I use it.

It's mainly annoying since I can't understand the cause of why it appears. If I'm not really noticing a problem while accessing Hotmail, why does this message appear so frequently?

Hi all- I'm operating on a computer with Windows Vista which has Norton 360 installed on it (I think that may be what's causing my problem). I've just hooked up my computer to a new internet source at my university, and the internet works fine- the only problem is when I go to and type in my user name and password, I get this error message:
There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

"This organization's certificate has been revoked.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.

I know it's not the internet because all my flatmates can sign into hotmail without trouble. And I don't think it's Vista because my flat mate runs on a Vista computer and she also has no problem logging in. Could it be a problem with Norton?

My notebook is set to the recommended screen resolution, under display settings that allows you to change the text size indepdenent of the screen resolution, I was expecting to see 3 radio buttons (as per the windows 7 tutorial) but I can see only "Small" and "medium". I haven't played around with different screen resolutions to see if it has any effect.

I wonder if it needs some driver update or related to my screen resolution or whatever? Thanks.

Answer:display settings only shows "Small" & "Medium"

I really don't know, but the Nvidia driver automatically makes some adjustments, depending on what it is installed on. I suspect that they feel no one would want the large text on a small display.

Could anyone tell me if this is a genuine request or a scam as I am reluctant to show my password until I am sure. The message seems to pop up about every half hour......very scary for a PC dumbo like me.

Answer:hotmail settings out of date?

This sounds like a clock problem. I don't believe it to be a scam. That being said, even clicking fix may not fix it. If it doesn't, I would check Settings - Time and synchronize to correct it. Hope this helps.

I just noticed several messages in my hotmail account with delivery status notification (failure) from the [email protected] - all with subject "good game, I've played for a moment for free. = " and an attachment, sent to several contacts from my contact list.

Since I never sent such a message, I looked in the sent folder - and low and behold, there were 8 such messages - 4 sent at 11:47 AM and 4 more at 12:47 PM today.

I have obviously changed the password on my hotmail account. Anything else I should be doing? The key question I have is whether it is something where my password is compromised, or is that not necessarily the case.


Answer:Hotmail account shows sent messages not sent by me...

Well, I would first notify those 8 friends to not open the attachment.

Its hard to say if your account password has been compromised. The account may be accessed thru the normal way using a password or the hotmail site may have a bug which the hackers know about. Or else there may be a bug with MSN messenger.

I would post a HijackThis log for a gold-shield log specialist to take a look. HijackThis is available here:

Use "Do a system scan and save a log file", and notepad will open with a log of what it finds, copy and paste the contents here. Don't ask it to fix anything.

I have been playing the game for a few weeks now in my spare time on my Windows 10 desktop and have acquired some bonus packs, a dozen vehicles, upgrades, unlocked 5 seasons, and moved my user rank up to 4824 in the multiplayer ranks amongst various other things. I do not want to lose my progress but for the first time i wanted to upload a ghost the other day and seen that (it seems) I will lose all progress if I log into Facebook now. Also, I noticed that my "local account" doesn't transfer my save data when I log into the game on my Windows 10 laptop (which is super inconvenient because I am rarely home). I seen topics posted that a Facebook sync fixes this but I am afraid I will lose all my progress.
Anyone have any experience with this?

Answer:On Windows 10: "Asphalt 8 Airborne" can I sync my "local account" with my "Facebook Account?"

I am with you on this. I'm having the same problem, and the Customer Care form at Gameloft is not set-up yet for inquiries on desktop platforms. Also, search engines are hard to trigger relative informaiton on the subject. I have no intention of changing over to my Facebook "version" if the progress isn't going to be transferred.
It's just a new problem brought around to headline the Windows 10 updates. I'm sure there will be a wait time, but there has got to be a flood of new Win10 users that are firing up their CC services for a fix.
If I find out that it fixable, I'll get back to this thread.

Hi TSF, the problems are:
1. When I type something on Google search, sometimes it says: "This computer is sending automated requests", and I have to fill in 2 correct captcha to proceed.
2. Most of the time when I try to download from Rapidshare, they just block my account, saying "there are too many critical calls", although I'm not downloading anything at all.
3. One of my hotmail account suddenly can't be accessed, the password is wrong, although my password is a 'strong password'. Now, I don't know how to retrieve it as the security question is either changed or wasn't set up.
4. My other hotmail account is sending junks to all my contacts and was blocked by hotmail. I have noticed this a few months ago and have changed the password back then and it did stop for a while, but then it started again. I realized this when I tried to sign in a few days ago, my account was blocked. Hotmail advised me to reset and change the password, and I did. My account is unblocked now, but I'm afraid it will be just like last time, it only stops for some time, and will start again.

Why would you need to type it in a search engine if you already know the address? Why not just type it into the navigation bar. Search engines are for finding sites you don't know the address of.

Better yet, why don't you just save it into your favorites in the menu bar?

My Hotmail access is problematic. When I enter my login name and password, I get to a blank screen that says "done" in the lower left corner and cannot get to my email. I am running XP Home Edition SP2. I am using IE 6.

My son's and wife's hotmail accounts are fine. I can get to my Hotmail by way of Outlook Express, so at least I can read my email. I have not tried accessing my hotmail from another computer; I will try that today at work.

I can login to, but when I take the hotmail link, I get the same blank screen and done in corner.

I used Ad-Ware SE to check for adware, spyware and it found a few things but that did not resolve the problem. I have deleted cookies and my IE cache. My Norton Antivirus 2005 scans found nothing.

Any thoughts?

Answer:Blank Hotmail Screen; "done" in left corner

Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required). This program will help us determine if there is any spyware/malware on your computer.

Answer:access hotmail in "normal" mode IE8 Windows XP

My personal suggestion is to ditch IE8 and use Firefox or another up to date browser of choice. You may be running into formatting issues as well as lack of support for modern features. I use Firefox with my Windows XP Builds and they run top notch on Firefox with no problems with all websites I visit which vary from email accounts over the web to youtube and Netflix etc.Also from systems I have tried IE8 on with XP trying to surf the web some sites report that your browser is not up to date and the site no longer supports IE8 or requires IE10 or newer etc.

I've been using both Firefox and Hotmail for a long time without a problem, but for the past couple of days whenever I try to access Hotmail I get a very long message entitled "Web Site Certified by an Unknown Authority."

It goes on to state "Unable to verify identity of cb1.msn as a trusted site," and says that one reason may be that the site I've accessed is no longer the one it purports to be, but is instead a hacker. (This, after entering "")

Furthermore, although the box gives the options "okay," "cancel" and "help" at the bottom of the dialog, clicking on any of them only results in looping back to the same box. Clicking on Back, Home or anything else has no effect-- nothing changes. In order to get rid of the dialog box, I have to close the browser (Firefox) using Ctrl+Alt+Del.

If I then reopen Firefox, everything seems to be okay-- UNLESS I try Hotmail again. Then I'm back to all of the above.

I tried e-mailing the Hotmail Webmaster about this, which I figured would be useless and it was.

I've now notified most of my Hotmail contacts to use my Yahoo! address, but I still have lots of stuff stored in Hotmail, some of which is pretty important.

Running XP, Norton Personal Firewall 2003, Norton Antivirus, Spybot, and AdAware:

Problem surfaced out of nowhere -- has worked fine in the past. Now, when we try to access Hotmail account, an error page comes up telling us we have to update our browser to use Hotmail. Problem is, we have IE 6 with all updates. (Note: we also get this same message when trying to access MusicMatch, but have not noticed it anywhere else.)

We noticed that if we disable the firewall, Hotmail works fine, so I'm thinking the problem has something to do with the firewall settings, but I can't figure out what to change.

Please help, as this is very frustrating.

Answer:Hotmail and "update browser" message

Welcome to TSF.

For your firewall, go into the tab/window where you can see what programs have access to the internet and what doesn't. Make sure that you are letting your browser access the internet. I never used Norton Firewall before, so can't give you the steps on finding it.

I suggest you download HiJackThis and run a scan. Then save the log file and post the whole file here. Wait for someone to examine it before making any changes.

These last two weeks Hotmail seems to be riddled with internal server errors. Is there a problem with it? I'd ask them, but there doesn't seem to be a way to contact them.
Also, what happens if I don't sign out of Hotmail, and shut down or come off the internet?

I can’t access my HOTMAIL accounts- HOTMAIL support?

I learned about Microsoft’s new policy of not allowing you to send email from Hotmail using it’s own products Outlook and Outlook Express unless you are paying an additional fee, when I replied to a (Hotmail) email while using OE. After sending my reply I received an error message that OE could not access the account. It then proceeded to DELETE all my previous email message in outlook express for this account.

A web search then led me discover that this account was one of those now requiring payment of a fee to send mail using Outlook or OE instead of logging on to the website. (They are doing this in stages so some HOTMAIL accounts still allow the free use and access with Outlook/OE.)

I then tried to sign on to my account using another Microsoft product Internet Explorer- initially everything looked unchanged,

1. however after typing in my name and password instead of opening my account

2. I got a new screen of “scrambled letters” designed to prove that a person and not a machine is accessing my account.

3. I type in these scrambled letters and one of two things happens:

a. (Usually) I receive yet another screen of scrambled letters to input

b. (Occasionally) I receive the “sign in screen” again EITHER WAY

Answer:I can't acces my HOTMAIL account- Hotmail Tech Support?

I've never used Outlook or Outlook Express in any form my self, so I can only offer some limited suggestions for sorting this out.

First: have you tried deleting all cookies and accessing the account? If using XP/2k -- it may even be helpful to try creating a new User Profile and logging in under that, this will ensure you have an entirely new web cache, index.dat and cookie folder.

Try accessing the account from another computer and see if you get in that way.

from my friend's email account, I am not sure if it goes through Outlook on her part or what. She says she sent it to me once, I have it a dozen times at least today.

it just contains a .wmv that I didn't even open because I was suspicious of the amount (at the time 5) of her emails. I replied "why so many?" and she was very confused.

I don't use Outlook or anything, I am very plain almost the stupidest computer illiterate around, and just have my gmail and hotmail account, it doesn't go through anything, I just logg in and away I go.

So... I did try to search this here on the boards but can't quite find what I am looking for, so if it is a duplicate, Im sorry. It's late and I am googly eyed lol
Any thoughts on what to do here? I suggested she contact her service provider for help since it is HER email being sent out multiple times.

Anyways thanks for any thoughts.

(Running Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1)
I'm a professional photographer and have recently begun shooting with two cameras simultaneously at events. They use different file names to avoid duplicate names/confusion, i.e. IMG_175000 and XMG_175000. Often times I'll take a photo with one camera and then take a photo immediately after it with the other camera and I'd like both of these images to be organized in the same subfolder and shown sequentially, but by default Windows Explorer lists all the "XMG_######" photos at the end and the IMG_###### photos at the beginning. I can manually sort each individual folder by going to "Sort by - Date" or even better, selecting "Sort by - More... and putting a check mark next to "Date Taken" so that it shows up in the Sort options (which it doesn't automatically) and then sorting by Date Taken, but since I'm dealing with hundreds of subfolders with hundreds of thousands of photo and video files I'd like a way to do this for all the files in these subfolders that isn't manual.

Is there a way to make Windows Explorer automatically arrange every file (both image and movie files) inside the various subfolders inside one root folder by Date or Date Taken instead of automatically always sorting them by name?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Making files in subfolders sort by "Date" or "Date Taken" by default?

Hello. My computer recently (less than a day ago) started to display User Account Control prompts whenever I deleted or copied that weren't in the "Users" folder, such as the Program Files folder. I am using an Administrator account, and the User Account Control is set to notify when programs make changes to Windows but without dimming my desktop. Whenever I try to delete any type of file not in the Users folder, the User Account Control prompt pops up like in the attachment. I believe there is something wrong with the "File Operation" program, because I'd imagine it would be signed by Microsoft and would automatically be elevated to Admin status so the prompt shouldn't show in the first place. Clicking on "Change when these notifications appear" doesn't do anything, but I am able to copy/delete files after clicking "yes".

I'd really appreciate help, because it's getting annoying getting this prompt whenever I want to delete or copy a file, and this prompt never appeared before when I was just deleting a file until a day ago. I'm using Windows 7. I'm just using a Windows 8 RP theme. Also, I don't want to disable UAC, since it lowers security.

I feel perhaps something happened to that certain registry key or keys related to it. But I'm not sure.

EDIT: I figured out that something was wrong with shell32.dll, so I replaced it with an unmodified copy of the file from another computer and the prompt doesn't come up anymore.

Hi, I have MSN hotmail, and 3 e-mails addresses. One address is for personal mail, one for contests and other "junk" mail and one address for business related mail. I am registered properly (in the 'account settings') on all three accounts to my actual city and state.
When I am in my mail and I click on the toolbar "Home", while in my 'junk' mail account or business mail account, it will show my home town and state and the current weather temp. When ever I am in my personal email account and click "Home", it always shows "Redmond, WA" . I have checked my account settings and they are correct and I don't live in Redmond, WA!

No it defaults to Readmond WA, I'm in UK and if I dont set my city right, I'm listed as Readmond, likely you will need to set your Home City on all 3 of the accounts.

I have received five email "returns" (undeliverable mail) for emails that I never sent to people I don't know.

Some of the names are similar, such as "lilmeat", "lilmikey", "lil~", etc.

Here is a sample message (I got five of these, all the same with different names as the "to" party):

Answer:Phony Hotmail "Returns"?

It's possible a worm of some kind is hijacking your e-mail address out of someone else's Address book and "forging" it to send to others. You get the return error if the message is undeliverable for some reason.

I'm trying to help someone having a HotMail problem. We go to, type in his login and password on the hotmail page and click and we get an instant "Page cannot be displayed" error.

To be clear, we don't get any message about wrong login info, just an instantaneous "Page cannot be displayed".

Anyone else having a problem with this?

Additional Info: I have been able to successfully log in to two other web mail accounts, a jono account and a charter account.

Answer:Can't log in to Hotmail, "Page cannot be displayed"

Answer:How to get my old Hotmail emails into my new Outlook Hotmail account

Here's how you add your Hotmail account to your account. I don't know if you'll get your messages over or not. They're two separate accounts that can't be merged.

several months ago i deleted an email unknowingly, I have all the responses that i sent as well as the person responding again to me, just not the original. Is there any chance that i can recover it, maybe with a program? i really need to find this. Any suggestions i would greatly appreciate!

Answer:i deleted an email from hotmail account months ago

Do you access your Hotmail on their website, by signing in each time, or do you have an email client to download the mail (Outlook Express, LiveMail etc?). If you use a client then there's a very slim possibility of recovery, but if you do it on the Hotmail website then you have lost it completely I'm afraid, especially after 'several months'."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

Hi ! This refers to the subject of "Automatic email from excel based on date", and relevant thread

This was fantastic. Only one issue remaining.
This is generating multiple emails and even the items not due are generating blank mails.
I would like to generate only one mail with different items different expiration dates.
After that group the identical addressees and compose one message with all the relevant data.
Awaiting kind help.

Good day,

I was looking for someone to help me in this:

Please see the attached excel file, which automates Groupwise mails for due date reminder. However, it generates individual mails for each due items, whereas, I want one single mail with all due dates. How do I achieve it?

I'm not happy with MS wanting another email/phone for email access; however, gave them another email account to keep mine.

However, now when I log into the email - I can only get my account info, not the email. I've logged out several times and back in.

I seen nothing to route me to my email when I'm in account info.

Please, how can I access my email?

Answer:[SOLVED] can't get hotmail email - only account info when logged in

are you logging with a hotmail/outlook/live account
are you using another email address
MS allows any email to be used to register as a MSAccount (changes since windows 8) and so you could register with a account
you wont get any email access as the email server is provided by gmail and not MS

I'm a still-learning, self-taught, fairly new, computer student. I have a problem with an email that I received in my inbox on my hotmail account from a ?friend? recently. The subject line reads...Fwd: Fwd: Angels....size 617K. When I clicked the open box, I got a firewall alert (Norton) that instance of confidential info "block bank account" had occurred. I then tried to delete the email and got the same alert and then again when I tried to move to another folder within hotmail. After reading the email listed above it in the inbox and deleting that one...this email opened...had an attachment titled "application thingsar.pps". I did not open the attachment but tried to delete on the page and once again got the same firewall confidential info alert. I just can't seem to make it go away!!! I thought about disabling my firewall until I delete it...but if it's blocking access to my personal conf. info....seemed like a bad idea.

I also had another strange incident involving the sender of this particular email and my hotmail inbox a short while back. I received an email in my inbox addressed to him...??????????? Always wondered how that happened!! Any input and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This is an awesome site and forum!!!! Thanks!!!!!

My wife has 2 hotmail accounts ( and .com) . She can access them via a PC, her android phone and ipad, the ipad being her primamry source. However there have been 2 instances in the last week where emails have been received and show on the phone and the PC, but not the iPad. As you can imagine, this is more than frustrating. Any clues or solutions would be more than appreciated.
