Outlook express


M

Hi,

Since yesterday when I open Outlook Express I am greeted with the message
"Access to the account was denied. Verify that your username and password
are correct".

The information contained in the details are as below:

Forbidden

Configuration:
Account: Hotmail
Server: http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp
User name: removed for privacy reasons
Protocol: HTTPMail
Port: 0
Secure(SSL): 0
Error Number: 998
Code: 800ccc33

The username and password have not been changed and I have checked that they
are correct. The username and password are obviously correct as I can log
into Windows Live Hotmail via Internet Explorer, just not through Outlook
Express.Also I have a pop3 account for googlemail this also gets the same
error.

Now I have downloaded outlook connector and I can now use outlook 2003 with
Hotmail etc for the time being but I would like outlook express working

Does this mean outlook express no longer works because I cant get accounts
to go through it.



Kind Regards

Martin Adams

You should ask in an Outlook Express newsgroup. This is for Outlook.
