I use Hotmail. (I do have a dormant gmail account, the use of which is important later)
When I go to Settings > Accounts, I do not have email showing. I do have a Microsoft Exchange but that is all. When I investigate further, with “Add Account”, I can see that many of the circles are clicked but email is blank. If I click on email, I get taken to an email setup page. When I key in my email account, I get told it already is already in use and I can’t go any further.
If I add another email account (my gmail one), I get taken to the same screen and it goes through ok, and now appears on my email accounts. However, and this may be important, when I go to Settings > Accounts, there is still NO email showing and when I go into Add Account, the email button is unclicked again.
If I add my Yahoo email (again, rarely used) I get taken to a page that asks what sort of account it is e.g. POP3 or IMAP or something else. None of this makes any sense to me at all so I don’t proceed with it.
I thought of deleting the Hotmail account and then reinstalling it but I can’t even find a way of deleting it. If I “Remove Account”, all it does is remove the Gmail account I just added, not the Hotmail account.
If I look at the Microsoft Exchange thing, I get told Master Sync is disabled and even though there are multiple buttons saying “Sync Now”, none of them sync anything and then once more I get told that I couldn’t sign in to Hotmail.
