Can't receive new mail from hotmail

Okay, so I got my MacBook Air two days ago and everything has been running fine, except for the fact that in the Mail app I can't receive email from my hotmail account past a certain point. When it goes to receive new mail for the account it lists itself as receiving 2320 incoming messages. I know that this figure is too high, perhaps about double what it should be getting from the account. However, the main problem lies in the fact that the Mail app only ever receives 455 of those messages, which leaves me missing pretty much every email I've received this year. The Mail app works fine for receiving new emails from my university email account (which uses for its incoming mail server, as opposed to hotmail's I've looked through the online support pages and looked for people having a similar problem here, but neither of these have been of any real help. I have no idea what the problem could be, so any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
If any additional information would be helpful then I'd be more than happy to provide it.

had the same problem and solved it!

  • Mac Mail Not Receiving New Mail from Exchange

    Hey everyone, in the last few days, I've noticed that my Mac Mail isn't downloading new messages from my company's exchange server.
    I can log into the web-based exchange server and see new messages sitting there, unread. If I quit Mail and re-open it, it fixes the problem, but taking all of the accounts offline and bringing them back online does not fix the problem.
    Does anyone know what might be causing this and how to fix it? I'm thinking some cache might be full or something.
    Thanks in advance

    Same problems here. Glad I'm not the only one.
    After looking at the Activity window, this is what it displays:
    The Connection Doctor just says that all accounts were able to log in successfully, so no help there.
    After clicking on the Stop Sign icon beside the stuff in the activity window (which effectively "stops" that task it's beside), I can then right click and "synchronize" my Exchange account and it receives all messages immediately, including the inbox. It's a work around, but I'm not sure that just command+Q and reopen wouldn't be easier.
    It appears that a receive action just freezes up, which is why a resync before you kill the first sync doesn't fix it and a quit+restart does. As a side note, I can send messages through Exchange just fine when this receive lockup occurs.
    Apple, please look into have a better mail client than M$, but at least theirs stays connected.

  • E72 and Gmail problem (I can't receive new mail)

    I hava Gmail account set up in my Nokia E72. I can send mail and I can receive mail which is dated till 23.02.2010. Mail that came in my inbox after that date and new mail I can not receive on E72. What could be a problem?

    You could try re-sync-ing your Nokia Messaging account to see if that works. I forgot the exact term though but it's somewhere in the options...or settings... It will basically remove all the email data in your phone and re-sync to your connected mailboxes fresh.
    You will not be able to download a separate Mail for Exchange application to install in your Nokia E72 because the MFE functionality is integrated (built-in) with the Nokia Email Client that is part of your phone OS.
    In other words, your Nokia E72 came pre-loaded with the ability to use MFE. When you set up an email account, there should have been an option for you to select "MFE" which will work, if your email account provider has an Exchange server for you to connect to.
    Sometimes, with generic email addresses which is by default a POP3 type connection for example, you may have to manually set up the MFE connection. So the way I do it is to trick the phone into thinking my email address is non-standard by typing [email protected] This will prompt the phone to ask me for an email type.
    The only way to "update" your MFE is if the latest software update for your phone has improvements to the email client software.
    As for third party mail software, it will vary because phones don't have the same operating system. There's no universal compatibility with one software. Every mobile software developed must be tweaked to work with different models and brands.
    It's not an easy thing to do and consumes time & money. So most developers will focus on the devices that are the most popular among consumers...  If Nokia E72 isn't listed as a compatible device, then you will not be able to use free mail software. You can email the software company that develops the mail software you are interested in to see if they have plans to include E72 as part of their compatible devices
    "Try not. Do or do not, there is no try."
    If you found someone's comments helpful or like what that person has to say, please give some Kudos to the post!

  • Can't get new Mail from my Pop-Account...

    I have a problem with Mail, as I can perfectly send but not receive Mails from my Pop-Account. The settings are fine and the problem came up suddenly. When I try to get mail from Pop-Account the application starts to load, shows the number of mails in the account, begins to count up the size and then stops. I can even see the title of the mails by opening the window of the Account, but Mail does not download them.
    I would be really pleased if anybody could give me an advice what to do.
    Thanks a lot an greeting from a German in Bahrain

    Hello and thanks to both of you,
    I am using Mail 3.1 and the Account is coming from Strato, a German provider. Before, I had no problems neither with receiving nor with sending, but suddenly it stoped. I tried another account (gmail) that worked without any problem. Also your advice with SSl and the ports did not help . I Also phoned the Helpline of the provider Strato without any result . Also the place does not change - it neither works at home nor at work.
    Regards from a desperate Mac-User

  • I can't receive any mails from other apps at my gmail on ipad 2

    I can sent and receive emails from my ipad 2, using gmail. However, when I try sharing documents, photo's etc. in other apps, I don't receive the mail.
    For instance:
    I made a mindmap in the app Ithoughts. Then composed an email, included the map (tried different formats including pdf).
    Send the email - that seems to work. But I never receive it on my gmail account. This also happens when I try to mail a photo from my photo library.
    I also tried different mail addresses, but it won't work anyhow.
    Sending and receiving mails directly to my mail account does work.
    Please help me!

    Thanks so much! My grandaughters played games on the iPad over Xmas and one of their moms said shed restricted their access! Guess they forgot to enable again. Thank you again! Karla

  • Can't receive new mail

    I'm not receiving my yahoo mail thru the Apple Mail but can if I log in to my account thru Safari

    I think a lot of people are having issues with Yahoo! mail in Mail.  It could be something on the Yahoo! server side, might not be anything that you have done.  Check your settings to make sure they are still the same, and make sure your login credentials are accurate and complete.

  • I got last update of Firefox today, and since re-start, I can not read my mail from Hotmail, or log in to any of my secure banking sites... Why?

    My pc automatically update Mozilla, and today after the update, it restarted as always, but now I can no longer read my email, do my banking or access any secure sites.. I can open their pages, but take no action. It still work with Explorer, so it is not all the banks faults.

    Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache.
    Note: ''This will temporarily log you out of all sites you're logged in to.''
    To clear cache and cookies do the following:
    #Go to Firefox > History > Clear recent history or (if no Firefox button is shown) go to Tools > Clear recent history.
    #Under "Time range to clear", select "Everything".
    #Now, click the arrow next to Details to toggle the Details list active.
    #From the details list, check ''Cache'' and ''Cookies'' and uncheck everything else.
    #Now click the ''Clear now'' button.
    Further information can be found in the [[Clear your cache, history and other personal information in Firefox]] article.

  • I can't open delete or send e-mails from hotmail with firefox 11

    my problem starts 3 days before i performe the update to FF11 so i can't open edit send or delete any e-mail from hotmail and still continues after the update to version 11 of FF. That issue happens only with FF on IE they work perfect. Any idea how to fix that problem on FF??

    Before creating a new empty profile, you can follow the [[Basic Troubleshooting]] steps and maybe start by running in Firefox [[Safe Mode]]. This is the Firefox "debug" mode which uses the default theme and toolbars/controls, disables hardware acceleration and disables all extensions. See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] for detailed instructions.

  • Can not send e-mails from account but can receive

    I have my e-mail account with ATT Yahoo.
    I received an account verification notice yesterday from ATT and I responded and they said I was verified.
    However after I did that I could not send e-mails from my Imac desktop but I am receiving them.
    I spend 4 and a half hours, yes 41/2 hours with both Apple Care and ATT and they could not correct the problem. Both discussions were with upper tier support personnel.
    Here are some facts that make this an odd issue:
    I have other e-mail boxes from ATT and they can send and receive e-mails.
    MY laptop can still send and receive e-mails from the e-mail account that is only receiving with my Imac.
    All the settings are exactly the same and both Apple Care and ATT checked them.
    Is there anybody out there that may have an answer ?
    Both Apple Care and ATT blamed each other.
    My concern is that today I received another e-mail trying to verify my e-mail address for another e-mail address from ATT.
    I called ATT and they did not know why, I DID NOT open it up and trashed it.
    ATT has put a filter on my other e-mail accounts and hopefully that will end any problems with them.
    The account that has the issue is my main account and I cannot trust leaving it and am trying to avoid having to change it.

    Hi Rachel, For what it will be worth, I was like a dog with a bone about this, so I decided to give it another go. I have success on both boxes. Here is what I did, I warn you now it was a lengthy process. Before you begin download all the upgrade steps from X.5.0 to X.5.6 as single stages ( for me the combo's did not work) and have them ready to use.
    1st Backup all your mail to CD/DVD not on the box. Check for any unsent mails anywhere in the box and then throw out all of the mail bits that are anywhere on the system in any folder. 2nd Install & Archive, 3rd Start up from Install DVD and check/set permissions, reboot. Enter all your ISP details to mail, see if you can send a mail to yourself. If not dump all the mail you tried and the .plists, reboot and install next update in the series, enter all details as before, try and send etc. If this fails dump again and reboot install next update etc.
    I started at X.5.1 and got to vX.5.4 before I got a result in that sys asked me if this server will do, I said yes and I got mail out. The server name was different that was offered but when all was over it showed as the correct one that it should be on port 995. I must add that I had the spinning cog wheel for quite some minutes before anything happened. I continued on this way for the rest of the updates. 1x1 until v.6 was reached. That was only on the G4, I now had to do it all again on the MacPro. This one was not so co-operative in that I had to do it twice, but now it also has Mail running. It is funny though that I had to reach X.5.4 on both machines before it came right. On the G4 I was using a retail disc and on the Intel the supplied for discs.
    Others on here may have a better and quicker way, but for me this did work. I am sure that there is a problem in either the mail app itself or the production of the Master DVD's.
    Whatever, good luck.
