    Windows Mail "Account Needs Updating"


    Hello,


    Windows 1o mail tells e that my account needs updating, it tells me that I need to update my password.

    That doesn't work, my password is OK.

    I have tried instructions to check 'SSL' check boxes in advanced settings as I have seen in another thread.

    What do I need to do to sort this out?


    Thank you.

    :)

    Outlook account not working in Mail since November Update 1511

    Thank you. These settings were already set as you suggest. My outlook.com (Hotmail) account is still not syncing in Mail on my tablet. Furthermore, it has now stopped syncing on my laptop too. My other 3 accounts sync fine.
