Password for Hotmail ACCT. not accepted in OE
#1
All of my email accts  are set up except for livemail or hotmail. My password is not accepted no matter how many times it is inputted. I know it is correct because it is used in my other email clients without any problem.
Here is the error I receive:

"There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'pop3.live.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92"

Please help. Thanks.

I am using OE6 v2.2.0

P.S.

I was able to set up hotmail/livemail access using IMAP instead of POP3 in OE6 v2.2.0 as a work around. All seems to be well for now.
