  1. Persistent "account settings are out-of-date" in Windows Mail


    Hi there,


    I synced my university email account to Windows Mail. Everything seemed OK setting-wise and the entire syncing process went through. However, the account is never able to connect because there is a persistent error message that pops up saying "Your... account settings are out-of-date". Microsoft recommends two fixes, (1) update your password and (2) check that your SSL setting is turned on, neither of which are working for me. Re-entering my password (yes, it's the correct password) results in the message going away for about 2 seconds and then coming up again.


    I have tried removing and re-adding the account. Anyone have a suggestion of what else to try?


    Thanks!


    Jonathan

    :)

  4. Persistent "account settings are out-of-date" in Windows Mail

    Windows 10 Mail Account settings out of date

    I am having the same problem with a new tablet and my Microsoft account. The problem was not originally there, but surfaced about 3 weeks ago. The mail and calendar apps both report that "Your Live account settings are out of date.". Pressing the [Fix Account]
    button makes an attempt to fix it, but immediately after it says that it is fixed, the app reports again that the settings are out of date.

    • I did see that my system time was off (which I thought was very strange as it was set to automatically get set), but fixing the time did not help.
    • I ran the wsreset.exe, as other have suggested, but that did not seem to impact anything. I did not have any problems with the Windows Store.
    • Another Microsoft Account that is setup on the same tablet
      does not have this problem.
    • My Microsoft Account on 2 other Win10 systems are not exhibiting this problem.
    • I do have the anniversary update applied on this system (and all the systems).
    • I do not have any other mail accounts setup, other than my base Live/Microsoft account.
    • I tried un-syncing the mail account (in the mail app>Manage Accounts>chose my account>Change Mailbox sync settings>Sync Options (mail) turned off), which made all the mail that had previously synced just vanish - which would be expected; and then
      I added the account back in and enabled the syncing hoping this would reinitialize things - but this had no impact either.

    Has there been anything new published from Microsoft on this problem since the Anniversary update has been published? Thanks.
