WIndows Live Mail Live.com POP3 Error 800CCC90 and 800CCC92 error

I can go to Outlook.com and my email address and password work fine.   I have Windows Live Mail on Windows 7.   The other accounts for ATT and Gmail are fine.   My *** Email address is removed for privacy *** account stopped working on 5.1.2016.  I tried retyping the user name and password.   Tried clear, SPA and APOP Log On modes.   I has been fine for months.  I need POP3 because I set it to clean up the Outlook.com mailbox and bring all mail to my workstation.

Could it be from the TLS 1.0 shutdown?   I don't want to install Outlook itself.  Too much bloat on it.  Any other mail apps for Windows 7 x64.   I know it is not the issue in 2015 with that KB patch.  I checked and its not installed.

I went into Outlook Mail online.    Under Accounts is POP - IMAP.   POP was turned off by Microsoft for some very stupid reason. 

hit gear and options

Under Accounts

POP and IMAP

Under POP

Let devices and apps use POP

Let Apps and device delete message from Outlook

Windows live mail worked after doing this.   Microsoft pulling more **** on us.
