Microsoft accounts login workaround
« on: February 15, 2023, 01:29:02 pm »
Hi everyone!

We are very sorry that our users experience problems logging in to their Microsoft accounts (Outlook, Hotmail, Live). The problem is not on our side, but we monitor the issue constantly.  :-\

We have two solutions.

  • You can join the beta program and update the app with the workaround.
  • To enroll in our Beta Group, please use this link: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/org.kman.AquaMail.
  • Please keep in mind that, we don't know for how long this solution will work because Microsoft can make sudden changes.
  • Or use the "Exchange mail" or "Other mail" login process from add account screen to sign in to your account. To do that you need to enable "Two-step verification" and then use the generated "app password"
  • You need to do the steps from your web browser by logging in to the Microsoft website.

Thank you for your continued support and feedback!

This might help someone,

I went to MSN and got a brand new App password and put this in place of my Hotmail password in Aqua Mail and Hotmail started working in Aqua Mail.

I let Aqua mail set up the Hotmail account automatically except for the password.

Hi,
The issue is resolved.
Please update the app to the newest version, delete the account, and then add it again, using the normal way.
