Do you have the latest version? Mine does play up a little I've just downloaded a suggested update (suggested by the error reporting tool).

Try using Ctrl, Alt Del and stop messenger and then reboot

I use outlook to acces hotmail through, but I am constantly getting an error message,
Task 'Hotmail: Folder:Inbox Downloading all items.' reported error (0x800CCC32) : 'Access to the account was denied. Verify that your username and password are correct.The server responded 'Unauthorized'. '

The password is correct and I have hotmail plus so I can normally access it in outlook...

Anyone else suffering (in silence)?

A couple of weeks ago I was getting the same message as originalmiscellany. I use Freepops to access some of my web mails, including Hotmail. Apparently they have changed the access procedure slightly which necessitated changing the script in one of the files in Freepops.

It maybe related, I don’t know because I don’t use Windows, but what TomG suggests by making sure OE and Outlook are kept up to date.

I have had these problems as well, but only since I upgraded to Hotmail 7. The security is over the top on this one. Tried to send a complaint form to MSN, spent 10 minutes typing it out, and when I clicked on 'submit', it told me it could not be sent....aaaarrrrrgggghhhh!!.

Probably too many complaints coming in from elsewhere about it!

i've been having probs accessing the hotmail account on my computer, but it's fine on my housemate's - do you guys reckon it could be a prob with IE or OE?
