My Hotmail is playing up badly on both my iP5 and my 3GS. Yahoo and Virgin work fine and Mrs W's Hotmail is working fine on her iP4. All accounts are working fine on my PC. Over the last day I get intermittent error messages: "cannot get mail" "The connection to the server has failed" "This message has not been downloaded from the server" My folders aren't syncing or updating properly and sometimes the little wheel just spins away in the background. I've done a bit of research and it looks as though this is a persistent problem according to Apple Communities and other sites. There are loads of suggested solutions, but I don't want to do anything drastic if it's going to sort itself out in the next day or so. I've tried deleting and re-entering the password and although it verifies fine, it doesn't fix the problem. The 3GS a/c is set up as "Hotmail" and the iP5 as "Outlook" (though I set it up as Hotmail). I don't think I've done anything at my end to cause this, so I'm wondering if there isn't a Hotmail/Outlook conflict that's causing the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
