Outlook XP and Hotmail

  alan in spain 11:34 01 Apr 2003

I cannot seem to get Outlook XP to check the mail on my 2 hotmail accounts. I have previously used outlook express 6 and all was well. I would like to take advantage of outlook xp but cannot understand what is wrong. If i put the hotmail accounts in separately they work. But as soon as i try to have both accounts in the email accounts section the last one to be added always says it cannot access the server because of a time out.

Any ideas ?

How did you manage to get Outlook to check even one hotmail account? My understand, and even the Microsoft Tech Support staff say Outlook is not able to check hotmail accounts, only Outlook Express can do it.

in outlook xp (2002) i just clicked add mail account using the wizard.

Then clicked Http:// account

then typed my user name and password

and it just worked. same as outlook express. except it will not let me do it with 2 accounts, where as outlook express does.

no trickery involved !
