    Default Microsoft email on G2

    Hi guys I'm having a hard time trying to add my msn and live email accounts to my G2. Every time I try and enter the email passwords it's saying it's incorrect when I just checked to make sure. I also made sure I'm connected to the internet. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated.

    Try going into your Microsoft account settings and using a one time application password

    Thanks for responding. I didn't see the one time app password. I did just add my msn account by manually adding the pop3 server address but I cant add my live account. Maybe it's something wrong on Microsoft's end?

    I am not certain but I believe all msn, live, hotmail, etc. Microsoft accounts should not be added as POP3 but rather as Exchange type (Microsoft Exchange instead of Other). Not that this explains why you were able to add your msn but not your live. That aside, I believe that Exchange type is better than POP3 type due to IMAP (IMAP Idle?).

    My msn/live/hotmail accounts have always been a bit funky: I get periodic credentials/verify errors out of the blue -- yet they go away. Same with the msn/live IM apps (which are now no longer supported and all accounts migrated to Skype). I'd lean to something off on MS's end. My suggestion would be to log into your live account from your PC, change the password, then change it back and try again from your phone. Good luck.

    I use the official Outlook.com Android app. It's nice.
