Just recently when trying to login to my Hotmail/Outlook eMail account on my MBA running the most recent Catalina version, it will NOT accept my Password!

Any and all input/direction will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

The obvious question is are you sure you are putting in the right password?

If you go to your Application folder and scroll down to the Utility folder. In there is an application called keychain. Open that up, search hotmail in it, double click on it. It will show you the password you have used to login into that website. You will need your admin username and password to see the hotmail password.

Other then that you are stuck with needing to reset the password.

What happens when you click on "Forgot Password?" and follow the prompts?

Generally when someone asks for password help, it isn't for their own account. When it's their first post, as in this thread, it's a pretty solid interpretation.

Could be fishy for sure. Anything I suggested does not work without Admin abilities. If they have gotten that far they probably do not need help hacking into an email... hopefully.
