Outlook hotmail inbox not updating

Never fear, however, as there's an update available that should correct this.

Switching to IMAP will solve this problem, but because there may be other issues, I recommend reverting to an older version and waiting for the next update.Microsoft is in the process of upgrading a number of older email addresses with the latest technologies and security enhancements.If you have a Microsoft mail address – either @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @uk, @live.com, or @– then your service will be upgraded by June 30th 2016.Untick the option to delete it after a specific number of days. there is second issue with this update and POP3 accounts.POP3 mail left on the server keeps downloading, over and over.Unfortunately that means you will no longer be able to use the Windows Live Mail 2012 desktop app to access your email.Corporate Vice President for Microsoft Outlook, Javier Soltero explains: “To provide you an email experience with enhanced performance, security and reliability, the new has been built upon our latest Office 365 infrastructure.“Because the Windows Live Mail 2012 email application doesn’t support the protocols used by this new infrastructure, you will not be able to send or receive email from Windows Live Mail 2012 after your account is upgraded.“This means the time has come for you to upgrade to a new email application.“We recognise that changes like this can be difficult and apologise for any inconvenience this causes you.To do this, go to File, Account Settings, double click on the POP account then click More Settings.The leave on server setting is on the Advanced tab.Those changes will prevent your email from being delivered to the Windows Live Mail 2012 application you use.In order to continue using Windows Live Mail 2012 to send and receive email for your account, you need to install the latest update published here.
