Hotmail email problem

Post by guybetts » Wed Dec 18, 2019 8:23 pm

Is anyone with hotmail experiencing problems at the moment?

I cannot sync with the hotmail server on my kindle fire (tablet). It advises that I don't have permission to sync with the server m.hotmail.com. This is since yesterday evening, though it's been no issue for years! My Sony phone has no problem (this time) and email from hotmail account is working fine.

I'm no IT geek, so find these things really frustrating, and if it wasn't so wet outside, I'd go break up some of the hard-core brick/concrete at the bottom of the garden :evil: destined for my workshop base.

It may be something to do with Microsoft stopping support for Hotmail? You haven’t been able to create a new Hotmail account for a while now, and I think they’re all transferring to outlook?

Hotmail has been called outlook for years, though I still have my original hotmail address. Maybe you need to delete and reinstall the whole app?

I have all four of my email addresses on one link now, through some internet skullduggery I don’t quite understand..... :cry:

It’s all pretty much beyond me nowadays.

Thanks for suggestions :D
Typical though, it's working fine again :oops: :evil:

I checked and it is still looking at m.hotmail.com server, though as suggested, I would have expected this to have changed to outlook a long time ago !

I'm not a Microsoft expert but I suspect your difficulty is an Exchange ActiveSyc (EAS) issue at this has been a bit flakey over the years. EAS allows you to sync your Hotmail/Oiutlook account with mobile devices and can be managed from a non-mobile device. The Kindle uses a modified version of Android so may not have EAS fully integrated.

If it's working now I'd leave it alone. If it plays up you can change the server to m.outlook.com. :wink:

We use Office 365 at work, and had this notification come through yesterday...

MSFT365Status
We're investigating an issue in which some users may be unable to access their http://Outlook.com , http://Hotmail.com or http://Live.com mailboxes. Additional details can be found in the admin portal under OL198576 or at http://status.office.com .

Looks like they were / are having problems.

Cheers, Mike.
