    Default error in setting up hotmail pop3

    hi, i have been trying to set up access to my hotmail accounts, but i keep getting this error message.


    Error: system failure: Unable to connect to POP3 server
    Exceeded the login limit for a 15 minute period. Reduce the frequency of requests to the POP3 server.

    however, yesterday i went into mail settings and changed 'check new mail every 15 minutes'... but i guess i am missing another step? can someone offer a suggestion about what else i need to do?


    the settings i found on the microsoft site said to use

    pop3.live.com

    port 995

    and check use an encrypted connection (SSL) when accessing this server

    i forgot to mention this is the zimbra webmail version, not the zimbra desktop. every time i log in it gives me that error despite it being set to 15 minutes...so maybe it is a bug with zimbra?

    well i tired switching to imap instead. it works a little better, but i am randomly getting error messages. i have 2 hotmail accounts and i am using imap for both. sometimes, at random one or the other will throw up an error message when i log in. but if i test the imap settings afterward, it passes... so no idea what is causing the problem. basically the error messages all start with "system failure: Unable to connect to IMAP server: LdapDataSource"
