Can't get my Hotmail (outlook express) to work

  KorgY 19:16 27 Nov 2009


Since a while now i haven't been able to send/receive email in my Outlook exspress (2007) account with my hotmail account (EG: [email protected])

I set my account up as normal, and when clicking send/receive, i get:

"Established network connection" (tick,

"Search for [email protected]" (tick)

Log on to server (CROSS)

I know my password etc is righ, as I use it in windows live/msn etc, so does anyone know how i can get it working? I have sucessfully set up a google mail account though, so it works on that.

it is my understanding that some time ago hotmail posted all holders for weeks that they would be changing the system and might this be it?

Reason \i want to get it working, is because I hope to get an Iphone 3Gs from Tesco's soon, and Sync the Iphone to outlook Express.

Hotmail changed the OE settings which came into force in September 09. You have to create a NEW hotmail account with POP3 settings, then you delete the old hotmail account cause it does not work any more. Put a Google search and you should find the info on the hotmail web page. My OE POP3 Hotmail account works OK. David

Here's a link to Hotmail Help - in the search box type 'Use Outlook Express' and then click on 'How do I add my e-mail account to Microsoft Outlook Express?'

It will give you full instructions on how to set up a new account
