New Hotmail issue

Post by Apesbrain »

One of my Hotmail accounts giving consistent login errors today. It just times out on "Logging in...". I've reset OAuth several times and I've signed into the account via browser to make sure it works. Any other ways I can troubleshoot this? Thanks.

I have 2 active Hotmail accounts and haven't seen any issues. And since you have others that are apparently working ok, this is presumably specific to the one account. So here are some ideas:

1) Try using "password" instead of "Oauth2"

2) Revoke POP Peeper's Oauth2 access through Hotmail's dashboard and then authenticate POP Peeper again. Here's the link:
https://account.live.com/consent/Manage
- make sure you're logged into the correct account

3) Try changing your password (whether using "password" or "oauth2")

Hi Jeff, thanks for your reply. As of this afternoon, the problem seems to have resolved itself.
