For the last couple of days I have been unable to receive any emails from my Msn account the message service unavailable keeps coming up. Has anybody else had this problem and if so have they managed to resolve it.

All repies appreciated

If you mean you have a hotmail account and receive them through Outlook Express then read the postings further up the list. (Hotmail and O.E.)
Apparently Microsoft and MSN don't talk to each other because of the possibilities of Spam.
I've just cancelled my hotmail account because I found I could receive e-mails in O.E. and hotmail but could not send them in either.

Thanks all for the replies. My account does not have an @hotmail.com but an @msn.com. The error message I am receiving through OE is as follows

Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'MSN Account', Server: 'click here', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Service Unavailable', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCCF0

and

Header download for the 'Inbox' folder did not complete. Account: 'MSN Account', Server: 'click here', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Service Unavailable', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCCF0

Anyone go any ideas /suggestions all replies appreciated

try setting up your email server names again in 'tools/accounts' set up using the wizard.

click 'add/mail' and enter your display name. then your msn email address then in the next screen choose 'http' for 'incoming mail server' then select 'other' in the 'my http mail service provider is' box and type or cut and paste this in the incoming mail box below:

'click here'

carry on and finish the wizard and it should work ok with outlook express.

I can't sign in to my msn account through the icon on my desktop,but I can access my msn emails through internet explorer. Does anyone have any ideas about what is going on?

Thanks for you note. I seem to be ok now. I had previously sent a message to the MSN help desk and I got a reply saying that "my account has been adjusted to resolve the problem you had" I don't know if you want to try that the address is as follows [email protected] .

Hope that's of some help
