For the last 4 days I haven't been able to connect to Hotmail. I tried deleting the account and setting it back up but every time i do, it tells me that my device can't connect with the server. I have it set up as a POP3 on incoming server pop3.live.com, secure type SSL, port 995. I used the web browser to check my account and was able to get into my inbox with no problem that way. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
try setting it as Exchange mail instead of pop. you'll need to get the server settings from MS.
I was also having the same exact problem..... For weeks I went to three Tmob stores and no one had the solution... I found the solution on a European htc support site.....The solution was/is so simple I was a little ******...LOL...
The solution... Short email pass word!! My pass was 17 long the other 2 people and the the person from the European site where 17, 15, 15 long...... My new pass is 8 long (letter, numbers and symbol) and works perfect... So it has something with the htc sending a long pass to hotmail I guess... So try and reset your pass to a shorter one and let me know how it works!!!
Were either of the above suggestions helpful? Have you tried using a 3rd party email app with this account?
Thank you to everyone who answered. It turned out all i needed to do was restart the phone and i was able to add Hotmail again.
