    Hi all. I've had my hotmail successfully working for the last few months, but suddenly it kept chucking up an error message about login being incorrect. I removed the account and am now trying to add it back but keep getting "Authentication failed/ Please verify your username/password". I am able to log into xbox.com, msn messenger, hotmail on pc so the above details are definitely being entered correctly.

    Incoming
    pop/pop3.live.com/ssl/995

    outgoing
    smtp/smtp.live.com/ssl/25

    Any ideas? It's been working before today with no problems.

    For incoming I have:
    pop3.live.com
    Then security is SSL and port 995.

    Outgoing I have:
    smtp.live.com
    Then security TLS and port 587

    Hope that helps.

    Anyone know how to setup exchange ActiveSync for hotmail? I use server m.hotmail.com and gets as far as choosing what to sync then It fails to setup user account.

    Thank you for your reply, but it still doesn't work. Whether I click "next" to get the settings automatically, or enter them in manually I can't get onto the next screen. Just keep getting that "Authentication Failed" message. :(

    That should be smtp/smtp.live.com/TLS/25

    These settings work fine on my Desire.


    These setting are only for .co.uk addresses
