Outlook Can't Receive
Hi, to clarify I am using Outlook.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks very much!
I'm guessing this is that new Outlook.com web site.
There's so little to configure so my bet is Microsoft is having issues again.
Web based email is like that.
Outlook.com or Office Outlook?
It's Outlook.com (the former Hotmail)
Then test this on gmail or yahoo email.
There are other choices and MSFT's handling of acquiring Hotmail and the years after that are interesting to some. But for me, I can't use their offering.
I have a few accounts with outlook however,
one particular account is unable to receive emails so I'm guessing its a setting that was accidentally changed. All the other email addresses at outlook.com can receive like usual.
Most peculiar issue.
Not at all.
Outlook.com is web based so there is so few ways to break it that if it fails, well, it's usually not your fault.
But there's a clue in your last post. "I have a few accounts with"
Now why that is a clue is that Microsoft seems to be on the lookout for such because spammers may try to get more than the usual emails out by using multiple accounts. So you may have sprung an anti-spam tripwire.
Again, only Microsoft can reset that.
