    Hi, I hope someone can advise on a possible fix for this problem.

    In the Mail app I've setup a Hotmail account and after inputting the info for the account it connects and downloads all the folders and emails. but on a regular basis i come to read my mail and it has a triangle next to the account?
    On further investigation i notice for some reason the 'incoming mail server' setting has been changed to 'localhost' and is greyed out so cannot be modified back to what it should be 'map-mail.outlook.com'.
    So you have to delete the account and re setup the account again which again works fine until the above happens??

    I have disabled the Firewall and i don't have any virus scanners so i don't know why this happens?

    Please can someone help? I am using Yosemite

    Thank you
