Cannot Send or Receive Hotmail through Outlook

  Snakey 21:09 09 Mar 2005

I have been successfully using Outlook 2003 to send/receive my Hotmail Email. Suddenly I now get an error when performing both tasks (0x007045a). I have recentky installed Fsecure 2005 security suite but uninstalled it too see if it was related. No Joy. My PC is running Windows 2000 with all updates.

Any ideas?

The one that is not free is the Hotmail plus.. (Which is 2GB). The free one with 250MB still remains free.. I still use this one with outlook with no problems.

Sorry snakey I have no idea whats causing your problems, all I can suggest is trying to set up the account again, or maybe make a new account and see if that one works.

To prevent abuse of the feature, Microsoft will stop making it available to new users of free Hotmail and MSN mail accounts starting Monday. Current users can continue to use the feature but will be asked to become Hotmail subscribers over the coming months. By April next year, the feature will no longer be available for free, Richardson said.

Welll snakey after reading this I do appologize. Thats a bit of a bugger, I guess I'll have to start giving people my proper email address if I actually want to see what they send me,,,

Heavens above
