Hi my Email for TT and Hotmail using Windows live mail have both stopped working.
I have pinged both servers and they seem ok.
The link above is for several screenshots.
Any help much appreciated ..

Your server settings are not quite right. The use of insecure outgoing port 25 is deprecated and you had that set for secure. The second set of secure port settings for TalkTalk you had set for insecure.
The TalkTalk.net email settings you need are:
|Account Type||IMAP (recommended)||POP3|
|Login / Usernameemail@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|Password authentication||Clear text||Clear text|
|Incoming mail server||mail.talktalk.net||mail.talktalk.net|
|Incoming Security||Yes / SSL
||Yes / SSL|
|Outgoing mail server||smtp.talktalk.net||smtp.talktalk.net|
|Outgoing Security||Yes / STARTTLS
||Yes / STARTTLS|
Thanks Gondola for the reply ..
I dont understand how my settings are wrong as they are the ones I`ve used for many months .
Heyho I will try what you listed and see if they work .. Thanks ..
ps: my screenshot link seems to have been removed , I guess there was info in them that I shouldn`t have posted .. Ooops.. Time to reboot the router ..
Hi Templogin, you mentioned that both TalkTalk and Hotmail weren't working. TalkTalk have no control of Hotmail this points at an issue with your mail client rather than TalkTalk mail servers.
