Microsoft decided to end their support of the Hotmail app, forcing me to switch to the Outlook app. So far I have been unable to use it with my account though.
To begin with, when trying to sign in it tells me that my password is incorrect. Once I finally get it to understand that the password is correct, it asks me to set up the rest of my account. I answer the questions (how many emails should be downloaded, how long should they stay for, etc.) and select the next button. It tells me that it is validating the account, and then it sends me back to the login screen again.
The first time round I thought that was normal, I needed to sign in one more time with the settings complete. But when I signed in again, it took me back to the settings page. There doesn't seem to be any option to get around it. I went through the options again, and again it said that it was validating the account, and then it kicks me back to the login screen again!
Has anyone else had this issue? Can anyone think of something I can do to either: a) Get the outlook app working, or b) Get the hotmail app working again?
Just in case it has any bearing on the process, it is an @hotmail.com account.
Any help would be appreciated, as this is very frustrating for me right now.
