    I've had my hotmail account running in mail for years without problem. Suddenly mail won't accept my password.

    I've checked the password is correct on hotmail.com and even iCloud is picking up my hotmail account ok...

    Any ideas anyone?

    Regards

    Hotmail is dead. Microsoft bought it years ago and change it to Outlook.com. The just added iMAP so go through the website and verify for settings.

    Does the password work in the web site?

    reboot.
    or try again in an hour...happens to my brother, and a while later, it's fine again... (hopefully, that will be true for you)
