Cannot add hotmail account into email app

I just installed e-OS on my FP3.
I wanted to add my hotmail account to the default mail app.
I fill in my email and click next. I click ‘Sign in’. I am transferred to the following webpage: The message ‘This site can’t be reached’ ‘ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED’ is displayed.
I tried manual setup and used the following settings POP, IMAP, and SMTP settings - Microsoft Support
I used the IMAP settings. My password is correct.

Is this an e-OS or MS problem?


you need to disable a tracker rule that blocks that domain (for Mail and Browser?)

( but it’s possible you continue to run into an issue, if hotmail uses the same auth flow as outlook … not sure. I offered a fix but ppl declined - Mail with Outlook/Office365 servera - #9 by tcecyk … would be curious for your feedback. If you can disable oauth and use pop/imap only it should work ? )

Hi, thanks.
With the trackers disabled, I was able to login.
Yet the next screen, when I clicked ‘Yes’. Nothing happened.
(I did manage to do it manually).

(why is your post flagged? weird)

yes, it’s a known (self-inflicted) Bug. I offered a fix but no takers. Just install k9mail as it can pickup on the Intent that is sent back from the Browser.
