Hi there and welcome
On the iPad or iPhone, if you open up Safari, are you able to view webpages?
And do you receive a specific error on the devices when you check for emails?
Please let me know
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
On my Iphone I am told I have asked sign in too many times with an incorrect answer.
I have changed my password ***** am not certain if I have changed the correct password.
On my Ipad I am told to sign out of microsoft and sign in to outlook. It explains how to sign out of microsoft but not how to sign in to outlook. I constantly get guff about school accounts and adminstrators - I am not at school and I don't have an administrator.
I am simply an elderly person lost in a fog of jargon
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Thank youEasiest for you is to add the accounts back onto the devices as it all sounds like they got messed up.On both device do this (as the steps are the same for both)Go to Settings, Mail and select the Microsoft Account then select Delete Account.This deletes it only from the device. Not the actual account itselfThen go to Settings, Mail and add the hotmail account again to the device.If you can add it it should then function correctly.Let me know the results please.

Shall I click on OUTlook?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I wish to know where to enter the password?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
You add the email account on the devices, you were busy doing this.
I will repeat the instructions you were busy with till you realised you did not know your password
On each device
go to Settings, Mail and add the hotmail account again to the device.
If you can add it it should then function correctly.
Let me know the results please.
