Windows Live Mail - Hotmail account.

  ricardoespana 21:29 28 Aug 2009


Not sure if anyone can help or have ideas, but I have done something rather stupid and silly.

In my Hotmail account with Windows Live Mail, a folder and sub-folder has either disappeared, lost, deleted or whatever.

When I use 'Sync' to check for any messages etc, the missing folder shows up in the 'checking mail panel', but not in my folder list.

I have tried to add a new folder of the same name, but I then have an error message, saying the following:

""A folder with that name has recently been changed or deleted. Please synchronize your account and repeat this action.

Port: 0
Secure(SSL): 0
Code: 8de20005""

Naturally, I have re-sychronised, but still unable to locate the folder. Also, I have tried to Google '8de20005' without avail.

The question is - how do I retrieve my 'missing' folder?

try settings windows live mail up again as a new installation but with your normal sign in details - it might be then as it was.
