Outlook.com is still not functioning properly for some Microsoft punters


A solution for the Disappearing Sent Items problem?

I started having the same problem as everyone else with connected accounts - mail either not going or getting stuck in drafts....


1) Delete the connection to the external account causing the problem

2) Start recreating but do not put the correct information for email address/password

3) Outlook.com then says it can't connect and gives you the option of PO3 or IMAP

4) Select POP3 and enter details manually for the account to be connected

5) Eh Voila! All is now working again - well it is for me anyway!

Try it and report back. May well work but if it doesn't wasn't me that found the solution :)

I'm just grateful that I can finally send emails with only one date header and save a copy!!
