Cannot receive Hotmail emails through OE

  webber_man 10:54 23 Oct 2006

Up until late last night i was receiving emails sent to 3 Hotmail addresses that i set up through Outlook Express.

However this morning they don't work at all. I have been using these Hotmail accounts with OE for 5-6 years now. I am aware that no new Hotmail accounts can be used with OE unless you sign up to their premium service.

The only thing that i have done since last night was to install the latest version of Internet Explorer 7.

Does anyone know of any conflicts between Hotmail/OE/IE? Or of any other reasons why i cannot access my Hotmail accounts through OE?

Do a system restore back to 6.

Like you I have been getting them for about 5 years So I will stay with 6. ;-)

I have read of others with is problem and it was solved using this click here I do not use Hotmail so I cannot authenticate the solution.

Also if that does not work by itself others have found that going into IE7 internet options and applying the default settings to everything has worked.

Thanks for the replies.

Took your advice anskyber and went to the link you provided and it has worked.

Why Microsoft have to make things that cause these problems is beyond me!
