    Have you try to change the incoming server pop3 to port 110 and the outgoing to port 25 in the tools menu>account settings>highlight your e-mail>click change>click more setting>click advanced tab, if enabled remove the checkmarks next to this server requires an authentification connection (ssl), ans select outgoing tab and place a check next to my outgoing server (smtp) requires authentification, click ok and next then finish.

    Thanks for everyone's replies.

    I found out the culprit!

    It was my work account that was causing all the issues.

    I know for a fact that when I tried to add my work email, it said after a while of searching for the settings that the connection is unencrypted so I chose to continue and that's how it has always been but randomly my work account would fail to synchronize which somehow was affecting my Hotmail/Outlook accounts as well!

    Now I got rid of my work account email which I don't really need at home since I can access the emails from the webmail link and the problem with the Outlook Connector is gone :)

    Maybe it wouldn't be an bad idea to check deeply first the own installation/setup/ config before point the finger to someone else, even if that someone is Microsoft!
