Which web browser are you using?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
(I can still access the e mails from my mobile device)
If you mean now - Bing
Expert:  Chris L. replied 1 year ago.
Bing is not a web browser. Are you using internet explorer, chrome, firefox? Also can you tell me exactly what the message says?
Expert:  Chris L. replied 1 year ago.
I think you may be confused as to how you access the email. Are you going to a website or are you clicking on a mail icon?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I may well be confused. I am clicking on mail icon on the new windows 10. (I got into e mails on mobile through websearch using google but couldn't do it through app on mobile).
In the email site at the top of screen is message
Your susanwakefield @hotmail.co.uk account settings are out of date Update DismissClick update
New screen Shows internet activity and Just a minute we are worig on this
Then new screen saying Something went wrong. We're sorry but we weren't able to do that. Error 0x80070426
