Timout in Outlook when downloading from Hotmail

  RWBCAM 22:43 20 Aug 2005

I have a hotmail.co.uk email account and paid Microsoft the £14.99 annual charge to be able to synchronise it with Outlook. It seems to work fine but when I try to download a large file when I'm away from home and using a dial up connection then the server connection timesout.

Looking at help, I've tried to change the timeout setting via Tools/email accounts/ change/settings etc. but you can't change the timeout with a HTTP connection.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
