    Outlook Requires "Signed In" to access Outlook/Hotmail Accounts


    I thought this might have been the result of a recent update, but it only affects one of my machines. Normally, I use Outlook without "signing in" to a Microsoft/ MS Office account. I independently, during account setup, set up my hotmail account. This was fine on both of my machines, going back a few versions of Office. However, since yesterday, Office 2019 on my laptop requires me to sign in to my Office Account in order to access e-mails. Otherwise, the hotmail accounts can't access the online exchange server (there is a little key logo in the bottom that says "Password Needed"). The prompt also tries to set it up so that Windows is logged into my Microsoft account. I figured out how to turn that off again. I've tried uninstalling Office 2019 and re-installing, and it still now requires sign-in. I'm not sure what changed, or if there is some new setting that is triggering this. What's weird is my desktop has the lasted updates and it isn't prompting me...I can still access all my e-mails without signing into an Office Account. Thoughts? Anyone else experiencing this?

    P.S. The new Office uninstall/cleaner tool to try to make sure Office is completely uninstalled is not very good and leaves a lot more behind than the old version. I wish I could find the old one again.

    :)

    Outlook Requires "Signed In" to access Outlook/Hotmail Accounts

    hotmail is now outlook

    Hotmail users can now upgrade to outlook layout.It looks like windows 8 menus. It's very fast now using outlook over the previous layout.


    look in your hotmail/live for this email. Outlook.co​m Team "You've changed. Shouldn't your inbox?"‏

    you can upgrade from within and create new alias's too.
