Does anyone have a solution?

I have it set up properly in my settings. It has been working for over a year.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

What do you see in Settings? – SLaks May 25 '11 at 18:05
I don't know how to add a picture here, but I have fowarding enabled to a valid hotmail address. POP and IMAP are disabled. This is the way it has always been set up. I have checked my deleted and junk mail folders and my test messages have not been directed there. – Xavierjazz May 25 '11 at 18:19
Are you using POP forwarding from the hotmail account? Have you logged into your hotmail account in the last 90 days? Usually they suspend an account after 3 months. Try logging in. – Muhammad Usman May 26 '11 at 21:44
+1. Thanks Muhammad. That is the solution. – Xavierjazz May 31 '11 at 17:15
So it was actually a hotmail issue after all! :P – cregox May 31 '11 at 19:13

I guess you were expecting more people to suddenly have the same issue and the voting at -2 indicates nobody who read this even understand what the issue is.

I can only say the forwarding system has changed at some point in time from the brief past and now it requires a permission from the forwarded e-mail, which will receive a message to approve the forwarding. So, maybe if you delete your current forwarding and redo it, it will be fixed.

Wonder why I just got a down vote, or what is there to improve here... These people who do it and don't give a reason. :| – cregox Nov 19 '15 at 12:45
