    I wiped my PowerBook a few hours ago, to clear all my old user files for university.
    Anyway my problem is: I have izymail, a programme that allows MSN Hotmail mail to be accessed and downloaded into Mail. I've input all the setting that i can remember but I get the following error message:

    The POP server “v3.izymail.com” rejected the password for user “<name_here>@hotmail.com”

    Please re-enter your password, or cancel.

    I know that the password is correct, I use it for a few other things, so any idea why it keeps rejecting it? Have i entered the settings incorrect?

    Thanks for any help.

    I'm guessing it previously worked, right? If this is the free version of Hotmail, Microsoft is trying to phase out non-Microsoft clients form being able to access it. So, plugins like IzyMail and HTTPMail are starting to fail (hence the defunct header on the HTTPMail site and the redircet to the HTTPMail Mail plugin). There's not much we can do about it other than shake our fists at Bill.

    Of course, this is all crap if you've got a paid version of Hotmail. :)
