Windows Live Mail - Hotmail POP account
I'm starting this thread to work on a WLM Hotmail POP account issue/question.
I feel continuing the conversation with Roderunner (George) and myself in the original thread is hijacking the OPs (Neelakantan) thread.
The original thread is Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
George, hope you don't mind I started this thread, so we don't sidetrack Neelakantan's thread and issue.
This thread is my reply to your last post in the other thread:
Hi David, I managed to set up my Hotmail in WLM using POP. When I sent a message to it using my AOL account, it never arrived in it, but it did in my Gmail account.
I tested this and received 2 Test emails for this account - screen print included.
Can you compare your account settings to mine and make sure everything is the same?
Do you get any error message when you can't receive message(s) in the WLM POP account?
If you login to the Hotmail account using a browser (WEB access), is the message there?

Since confirming I successfully added my Hotmail using POP to WLM and tested it, (it worked) it has been removed from WLM as it gets very very few messages.
My settings were slightly different from yours.
On the Servers tab, I ticked 'My server requires authentication'
On the Advanced tab, 'Server Timeouts' was set to 5 minutes & everything below 'Delivery' was unticked.
I have also made changes to my other accounts.
Cancelled forwarding Hotmail to Gmail main account.
Gmail main account used to check my AOL mail account, its been cancelled.
live.co.uk mail account forwarded to my Hotmail account.
My other Gmail is forwarded to my Gmail main account.
To get notified of new mail on opening FF, I added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...tifier/?src=ss
it checks my main Gmail, AOL & Hotmail for me. If their is mail for me in Gmail, I open WLM to read them.
If there is mail for AOL or Hotmail, clicking the addon opens their respective web pages.
