    MS Outlook


    Hi All,
    After the e-mail from MS telling me to apply the patch to WLM that broke it, I decided to try out MS Outlook. It came with MS office 2013.
    I have 2 E-mail accounts, 1 is with Hotmail.com, and the other is with Gmail.com
    Both are working just fine, with 1 exception:
    When I start outlook, the accounts should update / download new mail, but only my Gmail account will. If I want the Hotmail account to update, I have to click on “work offline” to get it to go online. Apparently the default setting is offline. I looked everywhere I can think of to change the setting to be “online”, but could not find it.
    Anyone know where to change the setting?
    Thanks
    Sven
    PS: I reinstalled WLM and it is working, however I would like outlook to work also

    :)

    Hi,

    If you are using the MS Outlook on your computer, this can be possible.



    If the same PC:

    - Device A is synched with MS Outlook A under Win_Account_A

    - Device B is synched with MS Outlook B under Win_Account_B

    Then…

    - Device A is then synched Outlook B under Win_Account_B

    - Device B is synched with Outlook A under Win_Account_A



    But it is always worth to backup your MS Outlook data for sure, if the result of merging do not please you.

    I wonder, did you use the 'Outlook connector' from Microsoft when setting up Outlook for your Hotmail account
    32bit
    64bit
    the version to use depends which version of Outlook your using not on your operating system version.
    It's such a long time since installed this I can't remember the sequence of events, I have a Hotmail account that works just fine in Outlook.

    It's the only thing that springs to mind, i presume you've tried deleting the account and re-adding it.

    Hi Pissant,

    I never heard of outlook connector. I set up my Hotmail account the same way I set up my gmail account.
    I will try to delete and re-adding it first, because the program is for office 2010 and does not mention windows 10 either.
    you think it will work on Win10 and office 2013

    I downloaded the file and tried to run it, but it gives me : you need office 2003 or 2007 or 2010 to run this.
    Also I reinstalled the Hotmail account and got the same problem.
    it tells me I am disconnected when I click on the inbox. I then have to click on "work offline" twice, once to go offline and then to go back online to get my mail on my Hotmail account.
    Any other ideas?
    Thanks
    Sven

    When looking for info on Connector I found a link to this page:
    Add your Outlook.com account in Outlook for Windows - Outlook
    Don't be put off about the mention of Outlook.com, it's mostly the same as Hotmail.com and Hotmail username and password should work just fine.

    Yes, on the left bottom above the systray it tells me Disconnected. after I press "work offline " to get off line and then press it again to get on line it downloads or "synchronizes"

    Hi all,
    I have set up another e-mail account. Yahoo and that will not do anything. outlook tells me all is set up OK, but when I click on the inbox absolutely nothing happens. it will not get or send any mail.
    so I have given up on this and will be using WLM until it will not work anymore
    Thanks to all who tried to help

    Okay, try this...
    Delete your hotmail.com account from Outlook.
    Restart Outlook.
    File > Account settings > Account settings > New >
    choose 'E-mail Account' next > choose 'Manually configure server settings...' next >
    choose 'Internet E-mail' next > enter your hotmail.com details
    in account type choose IMAP
    incoming server: imap-mail.outlook.com
    outgoing server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
    your username needs to be your full email address I believe
    > more settings
    under the outging server tab
    tick 'my outgoing server requires authentication' you can use either 'use the same as my incoming server' or 'log on using' and enter your details again. Do not tick the SPA box.
    under advanced tab
    incoming server 993
    encryption SSL
    outgoing server 587
    encryption TLS
    OK
    untick test account > next > finish
    close and restart Outlook

    you may get a few errors pop up while it all syncs but once settled it should be fine, and stay on-line. *Smile
