Hotmail message rejection

Postby Ramius » 2018-08-09 15:31

Running Stretch 9.5 and up to date Evolution. All messages to hotmail are rejected.

I use ISP

Thanks, Bob

May have found solution - change outgoing to SMTP port 587.

Any other ideas ? Thanks, Bob
The manual said to install Windows Vista or better...
So I installed Debian.

Hi Bob,

There's a lot of security issues that webmail providers have introduced; these sometimes interfere with the email clients. I don't know if this is your situation, but it may be. Webmail companies are rejecting older email clients. It's good to see that Evolution has enjoyed a resurgence of development from redhat, since it's moved away from thunderbird. This can help Evolution who itself had fallen on hard times a few years back.

Here are some resources you'll find useful -I'd go with the manual and evolution-hackers:

Official Website:

Evolution Manual

Evolution Mailing list (evolution-list)

Evolution hackers (evolution-hackers) ... on-hackers

Gnome IRC
