Problem with Outlook for Mac email client, webmail all OK

Go to solution

Hi I am hoping someone can help.

Today, out of the blue my Outlook for Mac client stopped connecting to email. 

I can access mail fine using the web client.

Probably foolishly now having read some of the threads, I have reset the password and can still access mail via the web but cannot via Outlook for Mac. I have deleted the Outlook account and tried to reset it, but I am getting ...

Unable to sign in. Check your credentials and try again.

I cannot set the mail up on Mail for Mac either.

Has anyone any advise on this one ?

Thanks

@BrianJH 

I assume you are a current BT Broadband customer, or are paying for BT Premium mail?

The problem you describe, has been going on for years, and normally sorts itself out within a couple of days, provided you do not keep changing your password.

If you look at the posts on this forum, its an ongoing issue. Provided you can login to webmail, then make a note of the password you are using.

Then wait until tomorrow, and set up your email clients, one at a time, with the correct login details, and it should be fine. People have said it seems to take a long time for any changes to propagate to all the servers.

I use Gmail, which does not seem to suffer from this problem.

Well the advice worked, didn't take a day, managed to get it all accepting new password last night. Thanks again for the advice.
