@hotmail.co.uk Email Client Problems. Assistance?

  Legslip 17:41 21 Nov 2016

Anyone else noticed this? my [email protected] address has stopped working on my phone and on my PC. It looks as though @hotmail.co.uk has stopped functioning on all email client programmes and the only access is via webmail. Anyone else come across this?

I did get an e-mail from Microsoft following a recent update to say that, after changes to Outlook.com (previously Hotmail) I had to "reconnect" my Outlook 2016 (part of Office 365). There were some instructions about how to do that, but sadly I have deleted them now. Sorry, probably not much help, but you might find something on their website.

Apparently it is Microsoft making changes though I haven't had any notification from them.

Just tested mine from and to various different addys and it's working okish, using Thunderbird on W10. However got one test email returned undelivered with message about hotmail.co.uk "Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list"

The problem seems to have been resolved now.

That is happening as Microsoft gradually migrates users over to their new email system. If you're still connecting using the old DeltaSync protocol then it'll stop working at some point.

There are a couple of fixes for that but I first need to know your how you're currently connecting in your computer email client so go into the Hotmail server settings and let me know what server address you've got there.
