POP3
yesterday i started having problems with my default pop3 msn account that i view in outlook.
(i should note that i have no problem signing in via firefox).

i deleted local account and re-added, but now it is not accepting my password (which i am putting in correct).

i ran the microsoft repair tool and it said there is nothing wrong.

i went to 'programs' to 'change/uninstall', clicked 'change' and this error message when i try to repair outlook. (not sure if its related).
setup cannot find office.en-us\microsoft.VC90.crt.manifest

here is how i set it up:
incoming: POP3
incoming mail pop3.live.com
outgoing: smtp.live.com
log on using clear text (although i also used secure password authentication and authenticated POP...none make a difference and it is not possible to uncheck).

outgoing mail server requires authentication: checked (previously tried unchecked)

advanced tab:
outgoing smtp: port 25 (also tried 587)
server requires SSL: unchecked (also tried checked)
Incoming POP#: port 995
server requires SSL

would be grateful for any help.

thanks so much.

Are you using 2 step authentication? if so, you need to use the app password, not your real password.

Use the fix it here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971179 if you need to uninstall it and reinstall it. (I don't think it will make a difference though, but i could be wrong.)
