Outlook fubared with Outlook.com / hotmail accounts

Suddenly this weekend, Outlook (2010) has become incapable of connecting to any of my hotmail or live email accounts. I've tried everything (I don't think it's on my side), including reinstalling Windows 7 from scratch. If I can even get Outlook to recognize the account, it will constantly ask for the password (as if it's wrong). It's not wrong - I can log into my accounts from the browser with no issue.

I'm convinced this is something going on with Microsoft's servers over the last few days. Anyone else experiencing similar issues? Anyone know if there is a web page where they post "known issues"? I can't find squat (probably because it's not there). BEYOND frustrated. Mad

Are you using Outlook via Outlook 2010 for POP access? Have you logged in directly to Outlook.com to confirm your access or if your account is locked?

What pop servers are you using?

Outlook.com and whole hotmail experience is going down the crapper.
