Viewing Hotmail Inbox using Outlook 2002

  C64 21:08 06 Feb 2007

I have just tried to set up outlook to view my hotmail account, but just can't see my emails. I followed the email account instructions as described on microsofts on website, but nothing.

I'm probably missing something very simple, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Unless you are using the "Paid for" version of Hotmail, you cannot access it through Outlook or Outlook Express.

Thanks, it pointed me in the right direction. The problem now i get a 0x800CCCF6 error message. This is the one stating i'll need to pay a subscription.

Is this really required and if it is do can anyone suggest a new email provider who doesn't need a subscription?

wee eddie - i think we may have been typing at the same time. Thanks anyway.

I'm not giving Bill Gates any more of my money, looks like i'll need a new email address.

Try GMail - I signed up today and can access it via Outlook Express. There are full instructions and even a wizard to help you through it.
