  • I was able to receive & send emails with attachments till a couple days from my phone. After changing my password, I am unable to setup at all. The msg pops up: Cannot connect to the server. My laptop is working fine. T-Mobile dowloaded Outlook.com, I am not happy. When you want your Folder, it opens upto non-system emails. But not particulsr Folder to move emails from INBOX. Can you help in setup so I can uninstall Outlook.com & communicate smoothly as I used to do? Thanks
