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.
To prevent abuse of the feature, Microsoft will stop making it available to new users of free Hotmail and MSN mail accounts starting Monday.

By April next year, the feature will no longer be available for free, Richardson said.
