The issues I'm having are on the web based version, although the android app isn't working either. I started using outlook.com in preparation for buying the Surface Pro, along with moving all my files to SkyDrive. It worked great at first but now my email won't pop. It's terribly disappointing. I tried deleting the account and recreating it twice in hopes it would work, but nothing.
When I click on Settings, More Mail Settings and Your email accounts I see this under Send and Receive email accounts I've added:
This account cannot currently receive email. Click Details for more info.
When I click Details I see a pop-up that says:
You can send email from this account.
<TIME> We couldn't get your messages: There was a problem connecting to the other server. If you've been seeing this message for a while, consider checking your account settings or contacting your other email service.
When I click Edit and click Save, it doesn't work. Tried many times. I get a message saying
We're sorry, but there was a problem creating your account. We've tried to save your settings, but if you don't see your account on the set-up page, you may need to choose "Add an email account" and start over.
Deleting the account and recreating the account didn't fix it either. I tried this multiple times.
The issue began on January 27th. It worked just fine before that.
It won't pop to my Outlook.com Android App either.
POP - choose POP and the incoming server port will default to 110
IMAP - choose IMAP and the incoming server port will default to 143
All other settings are the same.
Note - Substitute your actual domain name for "yourdomain.com" and substitute the first part of your email address for "user."
Username = email@example.com
Password = the password you set up when you configured your mail box
Incoming Mail Server = mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing Mail Server = smtp.yourdomain.com
Outgoing Server Requires Authentication (typically found in advanced options or settings)
Do NOT check "Log on Using Secure Password Authentication"
Use the same Username and Password as Incoming or select "Use Same Settings as Incoming"
Outgoing Server Port = 2525 or 587
This is subject to change based on the individual preferences of your ISP
My settings on Outlook.com are:
Here is the email address of this account.
Email address = My Full email address
Server Address = mail.mydomainname.com Port = 110 (Substituting my actual domain name for "mydomain.com")
Requires a secure connection (SSL) is not checked
Leave a copy of messages on the server is checked.
Username is my full email address
Password is my email password
I've checked and rechecked again and again the spelling of my email, the mail server, the password, everything. No matter what I try I can't get it to work again.
There were no changes made by me on the 27th, it just stopped working.
My Network Solutions webmail sends and receives normally, and Outlook 2010 works. (Yes, it is set to leave a copy on server)
Please help me fix this! I really want it to work again!
I went to Outlook.com and added one of my email addresses as a test. Yes, it only supports POP3. Took me less than two minutes to setuyp and it worked the first time. Aside from the email address/PW are you sure your server address is correct?
For your Incoming mail server (POP3): type "mail" followed by your domain name (e.g. mail.example.com)
For your Outgoing mail server (SMTP): type "smtp." followed by your domain name (e.g. smtp.example.com)
