    Windows Live stop working for you?

    I have the seperate install of Windows Live, and it worked great until last week when I noticed that my emails stopped connecting. Messenger still works fine though.

    I don't want to admit it...but mine is not syncing either. Not going to lose hope yet! Their servers have been down before!

    Mine syncs okay (I just checked to make sure), it is just that I always have to perform a manual sync, no matter what settings I try in the sync schedule. I remember when I initially got my phone and was trying sync Exchange, it wouldn't sync no matter what. Finally, after a master clear, it started synching. I wonder if you'll have to do that for Windows Live?

    yea..mine wouldn't sync manual either..errored!

    BUT, I forgot what happened last time and its working again...wheeew!! I had an email on the server that needed "Mark as Safe". Fixed that again and all is good! I wish I could do that via the Q though...

    I've always had my sync settings set for "As items arrive" and "Always" and never had a problem. It syncs when a mail arrives (push), I send mail or if there is no mail activity it will do a random sync once or twice a day.

    I recall reading on a Blackberry forum that MS shut down all but the premium Hotmail accounts ($20/year) from being accessed via POP3 or IMAP.

    That was for all new accounts with Hotmail going forward. If you were already using pop/imap, then you can continue to use it.

    FYI, mine manual sync stopped working consistenly last night. Same problem as the other posters. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    I don't know if it was just a coincidence or not, but I got the sync working again by re-adding the Hotmail account. I did this by going to New E-Mail Account and adding the Hotmail account as if it didn't exist. After that, emails were syncing again.

    Yeah I tried that but the sync behavior is still wrong. Mine will sync agan, but then go for days without updating. Sometimes Ill check my hotmail and there is not a single email in there.

    My Windows Live (Hotmail) also stopped working last week. Eventually deleted the account.

    "Windows Live" application is hidden inside \Windows folder on Q9h.

    Find and run "WLMLauncer.lnk" file in \Windows folder. If you are using File Manager, enable option to view hidden files.

    You can use this application to configure Sync Schedule, remove/reset Hotmail account etc.

    To delete the account, Use Switch Accounts and then Reject Agreement.

    Now to make things interesting, Microsoft has released a downloadable version of Windows Live for Windows Mobile last week.
    http://wl.windowsmobile.com
    Its a Hotmail only version e.g. does not include Live Messenger.

    Is this the reason Windows Live stopped working? ...
    Do we have to use new version?

    I will check it out and post results.
