Hotmail no longer sync to server!

[ Edited ]

Why is this?? What have changed? My two Hotmail email accounts have synced everything(folders and old emails) constantly for 3 years until a few weeks ago...nobody seem to know anyhting about this! My phones are N8 and 808...

 

When choosing "Hotmail" on the list it seem much liter settings than before...only Exchange ActiveSync work like I want now but it only support ONE email account...

Hi ekstamC, 

 

Delete the Hotmail account set up on the phone and then try to manually configure the settings upon setting up using the details below: 

 

  • Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop3.live.com (logon using Secure Password Authentification - SPA, mail server port: 995)
  • Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com (TLS enabled, port 587)

Re: Hotmail no longer sync to server!

Ive tried everything, and I dont think you understand what I mean....my two hotmail accounts only downloads new emails and erase emails Ive erased on my computer and webbased Hotmail. And when Ive set up my Hotmail accounts in myphone it shows only 50 and all are shown as unread...it doesnt feel if an email is old or already opened. And no personal folders are downloaded anymore...only inbox and some more standard folders which are empty. And the sync can no longer be called sync....nothing I do on the phone will alter the web/computer based Hotmail account...only Exchange AcyiveSync can do this nowadays but only allow one email.....as I said, for years my two hotmails account in my N8 and 808 have synced my Hotmail accounts entirely in real time and fully synced with the Hotmail servers... Something have changed somewhere...ive heard pop3.live.com cant even do this Ive had for years..still it has been done, like the Exchange ActiveSync do....  I had much more options before when choosing "Hotmail" when setting up the email accounts in my phone...its like there have been a secret updated that make this function much liter and now my btot email widgets only show new emails basicly...nothing more abnd my important personal foldersare not downloaded into my phone. Ive written plenty pots about this but none want to understand or answer me...something fishy is goin on!

I want my emails to work as IMAP4 does if you Google on it...it has worked like I had IMAP4 for 3 years now...until a month back.. Help!!

Contact Nokia Care and ask them to verify if there is a Nokia Messaging accoutn active for your phone and if so have them remove it. You can reach them by mail, chat or phone through the 'contact us' link on on this page
