Outlook Email Issue Workaround

Hotmail/Outlook/Windows Live Email Issues

Microsoft has always recommended that email users use the smtp server to send out emails. A day ago this server stopped allowing connections. It is unclear, at this time, why the server is not responding to connections or if the issue will be resolved.

To work around this issue please update your email accounts in StudioCloud to use the following smtp server settings:

SMTP server:
SMTP Port: Port 587
Type of Encryption: TLS
Username: Your Windows Live ID, for example
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live

You can update your email account by doing the following steps:

  1. Click the Settings component
  2. Click on the Settings tab
  3. Click on the Manage Email Accounts button
  4. Edit the desired email account and enter the settings above
