Hi folks
I have a problem with sending Hotmail emails via Live Mail. I can receive but NOT send emails.
I have done all the checking of the necessary settings in the setup procedure and they seem fine.
Here is the copy of the Delivery Status Notification (failure):-

Reporting-MTA: dns;BLU004-WSS1S3.hotmail.com
Received-From-MTA: dns;BLU437-SMTP43
Arrival-Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2014 13:09:50 -0800

Final-Recipient: rfc822;gr42@live.com
Action: failed
Status: 5.6.2
Diagnostic-Code: smtp;554 5.6.2 Delivery SMTP Error. Command: 3. Response: 535-5.7.8 Username and Password not accepted. Learn more at
535 5.7.8 http://support.google.com/mail/bin/a...y?answer=14257 kg2sm9599423pbc.72 - gsmtp
. Type=2 (-798154547:817:-2147418113)

Can anyone suggest an answer to this problem or what procedure I might follow to solve it hopefully.

Thanks so much.

Are logging into Windows Live with your Live account or your Hotmail account?

What I'm not understanding is - if you are using Hotmail and Live Mail, both Microsoft related, how come the link toward the end of the error message goes to Google Gmail help center?

If he has the Outgoing Server needs Authentication ticked the he may not have his Hotmail sign in credentials right.
