Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, an independent Question & Answer web portal. I hope you are doing well today. My name is Bob and I am happy to be assisting you today.

Please note: If you get an offer for premium service please hold off on that for now. That offer is automatically generated by this website, not by me. I can offer you whatever is needed to solve your problem.

Sorry to hear about your Hotmail account. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly. You can reset the password with the link below. If it doesn't work let me know I have another way but might take a day.

I can still get into my hotmail account on my old phone. I get the message about incorrect password on my new phone

So that means you don't know the correct password and will need to reset it with the instructions above

No thanks it's on my iPhone

That was an automated remote offer and isn't needed

Followed that link but the text was all jumbled at the end. It said it would take 24 hours to review!

Just for the avoidance of any doubt, I can still access my emails on my Mac and my old iPhone. It's just the new iPhone where I can't. I need to enter a password and there's no "forgotten password" link.

The link I sent you above is what you use to reset your password

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I also get a message in Mail on my new phone that says
Cannot Get Mail
The connection to the server failed

Robert thank you so much. All okay thanks to you. Got a quick response from Microsoft and followed the link to reset the password and hey presto all my emails are on my new phone. Can't tell you what a relief it has been. Wish I had found you on google earlier.

Great. It has been my pleasure to be able to assist you today. Please let me know if you need any further information, I'm always happy to help
