    [SOLVED] Can't retrieve Hotmail

    My iPhone tells me I have an unread Hotmail message. So I decide to open it on my TFP with the stock eMail app. It is set up to read several email accouts including HMail. But nothing shows in my in box for HMail, even after refreshing. There is a quick yellow bar flashing for about a second when I refresh saying couldn't connect to server. Even though I've had the same settings for months, I reenter mail and password info in mail settings. Same error.

    I run my browser and access hotmail there. The new message I saw on my iPhone is there. So, I'm wondering why I can access my HMail account via iPhone's mail app and via my browser, but Asus/ICS's (I don't know who's email app it is that came with my TF Pime) can't connect to their server. Is this an Android, TFP, ICS, eMail app, or HMail issue? Anybody else having this problem

    **********

    WTF!!!!!????? After screwing around with my mail for about an hour, I post this thread. Then go back and reopen my email app and.... my Hotmail messages appear in my In Box!

    There is an on-going thread about it here:

    http://www.transformerforums.com/for...t-connect.html

    Apparently there is an issue with the Hotmail servers and Android.

    Try changing your server to: debug-m.hotmail.com for now and let us know if that fixes the problem.

    Thanks for that Frederuco. I guess this thread can be ground up and pureed if anyone has such utter power to do so.

    Just want to check that the "debug" thing worked for you?

    Seems to have so far. I've been receiving messages in my HMail account, and no errors, since making the change. Thanks again.
