Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

Q: Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

I have two outlook/Hotmail accounts. One I log into the PC with (which is pretty crappy by the way and is a huge hassle in Windows 10 IMO).
In the mail app, I was able to add the mailbox of the one I use, however I have a second email account through Hotmail that when I try to add the account to the mail app, it asks me to verify with a pin. I have never used a PIN with this account. I went to settings and sign in option, and have an option to change the pin, however it is wanting to change the main account that I log into the pc. The pin appears to be 4 digits (it only allows 4 characters before it auto enters) unlike the main pin which is 8 or 9 numbers.

Thanks in advance,
Bryan

Preferred Solution: Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

Hi Bryan, welcome to the Ten Forums.
The PIN the Mail app asks for the verification when a new / another Microsoft email account (Outlook, Hotmail, Live, MSN) is added is the PIN for the Microsoft Account you use to sign in to Windows.

An example: Let's say your Windows 10 sign-in MS account is [email protected], and when signed in using that MS account you want to add your second Microsoft email address [email protected] to the mail app. You enter the credentials for the [email protected], and when done, the Mail app wants to check you are really the user [email protected], the user currently signed in to Windows. To verify this you need to enter the PIN of the current Windows sign-in account, the one of [email protected]

I've only seen this to happen when adding any of the Microsoft's email accounts to the mail app. Adding for instance a Gmail account does not ask it.

Confusing, I have difficulties to understand myself what I just wrote! I hope you get it, though.

I am unable to access my hotmail/outlook account, I have never had to use a password to access this, my inbox normally opens up when I hit the Outlook.com - icon on the banner of Internet page. Now, the opening page is Microsoft asking me to open a free account, or sign in. I already have an account, but despite hitting the sign in button, the age remains static. Yesterday, I spent three and half hours, yes, speaking with Microsoft support, there were three advisers but not one could rectify this problem.
I have also tried to access by typing .live.com, but again, it takes me straight to this page

Over the last two weeks, this same Microsoft page has been appearing in a minimised form, which enabled me to delete and access my e-mail account, but now it fills the screen.

Can someone please guide me

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 re-added a Hotmail account in WLM 2012 using POP3, and below are screen prints of the account setup.
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?

A:Windows Live Mail - Hotmail POP account

Hi David,

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.

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.

I am trying to add several email accounts to 'Mail' in Windows 8.
So far I have successfully added Hotmail, and BT mail. I am now trying to add my 2 Virginmedia NTL accounts using the imap settings shown on the Virginmedia support site but neither of them install correctly...though they do work. The problem is the Folders list on the left hand side shows only Inbox, Flagged, Outbox and then for some very strange reason it lists (Gmail) Folders...see attachment Ntl account.doc.
I have tried deleting these folders but they come back after a few seconds.
I have also noticed that 'Mail' must keep details of additional accounts hidden away somewhere as whichever NTL account I create it always uses the first account name I ever entered...'Ntlworld' which was a typo...and all subsequent attempts to create this account have been spelt correctly.

Does anyone have an explanation for this strange behaviour.

Thanks

Hello everyone,
I am trying to save my email messages from Outlook to the Mail program on my Mac Lion (OS X El Capitain). The problem is it won't let me use the POP protocole, only IMAP works. And I really need to use POP because I want to download my messages onto my computer instead of just viewing them from the server.

Strangely, when I try to add an account, it does it automatically in IMAP without letting me choose. But if I don't write the right info, it doesn't connect and on the next window then it lets me choose. So then I add all the info.
Incoming mail server: pop-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
Password: I'm using the 2 step verification so I'm using an application password
And I do have POP protocole activated in Outlook...

Still it won't let me add the account. Il gives the error message: Impossible to verify the name or password of the account. If I try a couple more times, it finally manages to create the new account however all the info is missing about the servers and the ports. So I add the missing info manually and yet it still doesn't work.

Thank you for your help.

I suppose that's a limitation of the Mac email program. Try Thunderbird. On both Windows systems and Linux distributions I've saved IMAP messages to my computers. Never used a Mac, but I suspect that Thunderbird works equally well on it.

Hi. I have a similar problem. I don't have a Microsoft account, I don't want one. My Windows 8 E-Mail address is for the E-Mail account on the family webserver, and yet when I get the confirmation E-Mail, it links me to a hotmail/outlook login page.

hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account, how do I get past this aggravating obstacle?

A:hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

When Win 8 asks you to verify your account, it shows you your email address in one box with some of the characters replaced by *s and wants you to type in the email address in its entirety in another box. Once you do that, an email is sent to that address with a code for you to enter to verify.

There shouldn't be any confusion about which email address to enter unless you have 2 different but very similar email addresses.

Hey! What's up?

So, I set up a limited account for my roommate on my computer, but for some reason, she can't sign into hotmail or Yahoo mail - it doesn't matter which browser she uses (IE or Firefox), all she gets when she enters her email addy and password is "This page cannot be displayed" (in IE) or "Unable to connect" in Firefox.

I tried my email addresses and got the same thing. I have no problem signing into Myspace or Livejournal or any other password-accessible sites, I have no problem surfing the internet, and I have no problem signing into my email using MY account on XP (which is an administrator account). But for some reason, those sites will not allow us to check our email on a limited account.

Any thoughts? Thanks for your feedback.

Hello,

Twice a day someone or something is using my email account (I use Live Mail 2011 to access my Hotmail account) to send emails to everyone in my contacts list. Up until recently these emails had a blank subject line and in the body of the email had only a link (different each time) leading to various sites (most of which were dead/invalid). As of yesterday, however, people are telling me that I've been emailing them regular looking emails inviting them to join me in some social networking site, or health club site, or genealogy site etc. My main Internet Security Software is McAfee (it came preloaded with the computer) and Spybot Search and Destroy. Since those programs didn't detect anything I also downloaded and installed MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, SpywareBlaster, Lavasoft Ad-Aware (which I recently uninstalled because of compatibility issues), and HijackThis. Some of these programs found several occurrences of malware, but the problem persists nonetheless.

But WLM will not incorporate the WM account.
I tried ADD ANOTHER ACCOUNT but though it starts off well it does not go past the password point and either keeps flashing the password login box at me for ever or it says the email account name and or password is wrong.
Now here is the strange bit - on my other pc all is well with this WLM, it rocognises the user name and password of WLM and desk top application mail ([email protected]).

So do I give the different user Admin rights,will that make any difference? Or what?

Hi folks. I have seen this problem pop up now and then on these boards before and have tried all suggestions, but cannot get this to work. The situation:

I am on Bell South DSL. I have set up a wireless network with a Linksys router, model no. WRTG54C. I have a Dell desktop which is wired directly to the router. I have a Toshiba laptop which is connected wirelessly. On the laptop, I cannot access certain secure websites with password protection. For example, with hotmail.com, I can access the hotmail.com home page, but when I key in my account info and password, I get a "Page Not Found" error. I also use a site for work, Westlaw.com which requires a password. Again, I can get onto the westlaw.com home page, but when I try to access my account, "Page Not Found"

The desktop is able to connect to my hotmail account, and the laptop is able to access my hotmail account when I am on my neighbor's wireless network, so I'm guessing it's not a problem with the laptop's firewall or anti-virus software.

Through this forum, I have seen a suggestion to manually set the MTU setting of the router to 1492. This has not worked for me. I have tried setting the MTU to 1482, 1472, 1462, nothing works. Can anybody help? I've been through 5 different Linksys tech people and they are stumped (no surprise there). Thanks!

It seems to me that the only way I can access my Hotmail account with Windows 8.1 is by using Windows Live Mail 2012. I set up the Outlook.com account and that works fine, but the Hotmail account does not send or receive emails. I get 'logon messages' asking for my password all the time. I tried to set up the Hotmail account using the same WLM settings as on my desktop computer with Win 7, but the categories are not the same for Win 8.1 and the info cannot be entered. I have tried to follow the suggestions that I have seen in other threads, but they haven't helped.
Right now, I have the following settings for my Hotmail: My ID is my Hotmail address, along with my password that I use; the incoming server is POP3; the server field is pop3.live.com with SSL checked and port 995; the outgoing server is smtp.live.com with port 25, with the SSL box checked. My desktop computer WLM 2012 is set up as follows: the ID's etc are my Hotmail addresses and passwords, but there is a server URL....http://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/sync.aspx[/url] instead of outgoing and incoming servers etc. There is no Advanced tab here as in Win 8.1.
I hope my explanation is not too confusing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi, a couple of days ago while starting hotmail i was prompted to up date firefox, i did to 3.0.1 since then after using hotmail my pc slows, and firefox can't be closed even with task manager. after a reboot all is ok until hotmail is used again. would hotmail ask to update ?
thanks, mike.

A:Hotmail asks to update firefox

Hotmail may not but Firefox might have whilst you happened to be on Hotmail.
It's conceivable that Hotmail may have asked you to update (in the same way that the banks don't like it if you're not using a browser they recognaise) but it wouldn't link you to a direct download.

Anyway, it sounds like MozillaZine's standard diagnostic will sort you out.

I can’t access my HOTMAIL accounts- HOTMAIL support?

I learned about Microsoft’s new policy of not allowing you to send email from Hotmail using it’s own products Outlook and Outlook Express unless you are paying an additional fee, when I replied to a (Hotmail) email while using OE. After sending my reply I received an error message that OE could not access the account. It then proceeded to DELETE all my previous email message in outlook express for this account.

A web search then led me discover that this account was one of those now requiring payment of a fee to send mail using Outlook or OE instead of logging on to the website. (They are doing this in stages so some HOTMAIL accounts still allow the free use and access with Outlook/OE.)

I then tried to sign on to my account using another Microsoft product Internet Explorer- initially everything looked unchanged,

b. (Occasionally) I receive the “sign in screen” again EITHER WAY

A:I can't acces my HOTMAIL account- Hotmail Tech Support?

I've never used Outlook or Outlook Express in any form my self, so I can only offer some limited suggestions for sorting this out.

First: have you tried deleting all cookies and accessing the account? If using XP/2k -- it may even be helpful to try creating a new User Profile and logging in under that, this will ensure you have an entirely new web cache, index.dat and cookie folder.

Try accessing the account from another computer and see if you get in that way.

If you are usiing OE also go to it and export your address as an .csv file then go to this url and import them to your new hotmail account.

For the past week, since 8/18/2004, E-mail that I send to Yahoo and Hotmail via Outlook Express 6, is being delayed. It is only certain addresses. It is taking up to 2 days and occassionally there is a mail failure. Hotmail sends me messages that the mail is being delayed and not to resend, but the recipient never receives it. My E-mail address is not blocked. When I send via internet, all is well. I have no other problems sending or recieivng to others.

Any thoughts?

Here's how you add your Hotmail account to your Outlook.com account. I don't know if you'll get your messages over or not. They're two separate accounts that can't be merged.

I thought "cool, a calendar!". I tried to use it and it said "First thing first! First open an account".Sorry, but I want to use a calendar, not an account creator.For godsake, I do have a callendar on the wall of my room and it doesn't ask me to open an account to allow me to write on it. But ok, I closed the app, and when I reopened it understood I didn't want to create an account or it did it for me, I don't know, but it let me use the callendar.

It used to be not connected to any email account but when it updated to 8.1 I chose to get an email address for it, so now as a result, the password has to be 8 characters long and I have to use a PIN number , but that's still 4 characters, and I usually use one character password.

So how do I go back to the normal type of user account to use the 1 character password?

I am having some trouble with my Yahoo and Hotmail accounts. I can open mail in Yahoo but can't delete it. I can't even open any email at Hotmail. It seems when I click on a button online the browser doesn't go anywhere. I tried various things suggested in this forum but nothing seems to work. Please help me. My computer is working great now that you guys helped me last week. I am extremely grateful!!
 

A:Can't delete Hotmail or Yahoo mail and can't open Hotmail

Hi
Lots of people have problems with Yahoo and Hotmail accounts. The most common causes seem to be cookie rejection, incorrect firewall settings, and/or an overly aggressive and intrusive firewall like ZoneAlarm that does a lot of things without asking.

Are you able to access the email accounts from a computer at another location? (other house, library, etc.)

Did you recently change any settings in a program or install a new program or a new version of or update for one, especially some security program (firewall, antivirus, etc.)?

Do you have a router?

Is your trash folder overfull?

I'm the only person who uses my PC. It runs XP and I only have 1 user account. Because another program said it needed it to run, I recently downloaded the .NET 1.1 from Microsoft. Ever since I've had to confirm muy user account during bootup, wheras before it went straight through. Is there any way to disable the 'choose which user account you want' screen?
 

A:Windows asks me to select user account at start.

In Control Panel > User Accounts make sure you have checked "use the welcome screen" under the way user's log on and off.

If no luck there run

control userpasswords2 and UNcheck "users must use a password".

Every time OE checks for new mail, a MSN screen pops up asking me to log in. I can cancel it and then close the error screen from OE when it can't connect, then hit send\receive again, go thru the same gyrations a few times and finally receive my mail. Sending mail works fine. I do not use MSN for anything, never have. How do I get rid of this MSN request to log in? It gets quite annoying every 5 minutes. I have win XP home, high speed internet service, 3.06 gig Pentium 3, 2 gig memory. I have looked in startup, add\remove programs, OE tools, etc. Thanks for your help.
