Draclvr-it is Outlook but Microsoft has added a code as extra security-they send it to your email but if you cannot get into your email how do you enter the correct code?I am using explorer 8.
I've had similar issues with Microsoft email accounts (e.g. Hotmail and MSN) they're a total mess, and support is nonexistent. They are literally daft.
It's the same sort of deal, request a security code to my phone or alternate email address, and of course none ever arrives. Open a ticket to support; they'll advise resetting the account and logging in with a onetime security code, which also never arrives.
Pestering them does no good, they just refer you to step 1, and it’s an endless loop.
I'm pretty much done with anything MS does these days.
The issue seems to be related to the device you login with. If the device is unknown, it starts a process that eventually leads to the account being blocked. Support will deny that there is any issue with the account, in spite of being sent images of the "this account is blocked" message.
This seems to be pretty obvious - apparently not, if you work for support:
Sign-in is blocked
Sign-in with --------@hotmail.com is blocked for one of these reasons:
Someone entered the wrong password too many times.
If you signed up for this account through an organization, you might not be able to use it yet.
