    Weird behaviour has just started.

    I have all the recommended settings to receive Hotmail into Oulook 2010 and it has been working fine for years.
    Sometime in the last few days – not sure when – I started getting an error when doing a send/receive but the Hotmails still arrive:

    . . . error 0x800CCC1A: ‘Your server does not support the connection encryption type you have specified. Try changing the encryption method.

    There have been no significant updates (just Windows Defender) or system changes.

    I suppose that I could just ignore it because I am receiving the Hotmails into Outlook but it bothers me. I’ve tried changing the encryption (the only choices for POP are SSL or nothing) – with SSL it functions as above, without SSL it doesn’t work at  all.

    Any ideas ?

      You may have heard that Office 2010 will not be supported (in a business environment) connecting to a Microsoft 365 or Exchange server.  This will take effect November 1.

      I do not believe there is an intent to change how and who can access Hotmail , but there could be bumps in the road while those other services are changing.

        Not just business, as Outlook.com (inc. Hotmail/Live/MSN) is apparently affected:

        Starting on November 1, 2021, only Office 2013 Service Pack 1, with up-to-date patches, and later Office releases will connect to Microsoft-hosted mailboxes

        “Microsoft-hosted mailboxes” include any mail hosted under Microsoft 365 Business, Enterprise, Government, or Education plans, and also Outlook.com or its predecessors Hotmail, MSN, and Live. All these services use Microsoft’s Exchange Server to store and manage your mail.

      Thanks for the information. Time to upgrade Outlook 2010, finally, I suppose.

      I could not get to a Hotmail account I’ve used for years Today but it forwarded me to my Live.com account….?
