Welcome To JustAnswer. Im Cory and I will be helping you today.

Please click here to reset your Gmail password.

If you are able to reset it please change it in Windows Live Mail.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I tried that 10 times yesterday without a code being sent to my phone. I got the code then and changed it and changed it on my windows live. It didn't let me log on though and I also need to change the outgoing mail SMTP number to what ever it's supposed to be. But I still cant' log on.

Expert:  Cory replied 2 years ago.
When you reset it where you able to login at gmail.com?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes Cory, I just did that and it appears I have been hacked as gmail gave me the details and warning. Well, that change of password XXXX now would be a good thing. I just need to get my emails back thru Windows live. Can you also give me the number I need to put into the outgoing mail SMTP box please. I have no idea what it was and I have gone and changed it therefore I won't be able to send mail.

 

Expert:  Cory replied 2 years ago.

The port is 465.

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thank you. It keeps giving me the message "the server has rejected your login" so what should I do now please
Expert:  Cory replied 2 years ago.

Cory, they are enabled and this is the message that i get when I try to log on to get my mail in windows live

 

Unable to send or receive messages for the Gmail (rhondaedser) account. Header download for the 'Inbox' folder did not complete. The operation was canceled by the user.

Server Response: Your IMAP command could not be sent to the server, due to non-network errors. This could, for example, indicate a lack of memory on your system.

Port: 993
Secure(SSL): Yes

Expert:  Cory replied 2 years ago.
Do you have a firewall or an anti virus?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I just use AVG and don't know about firewall but this has all happened since my friend was hacked when she used an internet cafe overseas and all her contacts were sent to including me. I did not answer but now know I have been hacked. Would a firewall stop me from windows live mail working?
Expert:  Cory replied 2 years ago.
Yes it could effect the mail from working correctly. Is this the free version?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes it is
