    Cannot get hotmail or yahoo on my kindle

    I search the web so I know the connection is working but everytime I try to get into hotmail or yahoo using my passwords, I am told invalid passwords. Frustrated.

    Have you been using the'show password' option when you enter your password? This option allows you to see the letter you actually type into the password window but as you type the next letter/number the previous letter turns to a dot...so you aren't actually displaying your password for others to see. This is very useful. I suspect the password entry issue may revolve around whether or not your are shifting to caps and then shifting back to lower-case. 'Show Password' will help you to see what you are typing.

    Yes, I use that feature. Not sure of the upper and lower case though. Will have to double check that.

    Are you logging in through an email app or through the web page via the browser? If you are trying to use the app try just doing it through the web page and see if that works.

    It's odd that you are having trouble with your accounts. I set up both Yahoo! and Hotmail with the stock app and did not have a problem.

    Update: I removed my Hotmail account a couple of months ago and tried adding it to repeat your problem. Same error -- invalid email or password. (See my thread in the Help Sub-section)
