    'Password incorrect' message while accessing exchange hotmail account through iPad 3

    Even after entering correct password, my iPad 3 shows ‘Password incorrect’ message on accessing the exchange hotmail account. How can I get rid of this error message?

    First of all, you should reset your iPad by making use of Sleep/Wake and Home buttons. You should first of all locate the buttons on your iPad and position your fingers in such a way to hold both the buttons together. You should then press the both the buttons simultaneously and hold in that position for atleast 15 seconds. While you hold those buttons, you can get sight of the red slider on your screen. You have to ignore that slider and hold those buttons in the same position as before. The moment you get the chance to view Apple Logo on your screen, you should release the both Sleep/Wake and Home buttons. When you can view the home page on the screen of your iPad, you should perform the following steps in a consecutive manner.
    • Tap the ‘Settings’ icon
    • Tap the ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars’ option
    • Tap on your hotmail account
    • Tap the ‘Account’ option
    • Tap the ‘Outgoing mail server’ option
    You can then ‘SMTP’ option along with the server name. You should tap the server name and make sure your ID and password is displayed correct under ‘primary server’ option.

    Access the Following path, that is the best way you can reach the destination of where you have stored the data. After that just simply delete the Account and reconfigure it.

    Settings icon -->Tap the ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars’ option -->Tap on your hotmail account -->Tap the ‘Account’ option -->Tap the ‘Outgoing mail server’ option
