Major hotmail problems HELP !!

Postby Anj x » Thu 17 Dec, 2009 11:49 pm

My hotmail address for my business will not let me sign in

error code 80048831

all the advice on the net has not worked...I have tried resetting my password...messing with my registry....deleting cookies....nothing.

it was my blackberry that told me i needed to reset my password as it expired after 72 days.....couldnt reset on there either.

msn live help should be called msn dead no help.

eek....i need to access my account !!

eeeep! :shock:

The only think I can suggest is using Outlook / Windows Mail / Thunderbird / what ever mail client you have with the following settings to try and get your messages:

POP3 server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com
Password: Your password
SMTP server: smtp.live.com (Port 25)*
Authentication required? Yes (tick "use same deatils as incoming server" or just enter your details again)
TLS/SSL required? Yes

* If port 25 has been blocked by your ISP, you can set SMTP port to 587 with TLS or SSL Encryption depending on the client in use

If this works then you can get your mail, and you will also know the correct details for your account.

Hoping it works for you, fingers crossed!
