MSN Hotmail Web Interface

Outlook Express Mail Client

Must be “online” to consult mail

·        Don’t need to carry computer with you if you travel

·

Can download mail to local computer for “offline use”

·        Cuts down dial up charges

·        Don’t need to be online (subsequently) to read mail

·        Can also compose mail offline directly in interface and send when connected

Experiencing exactly the same problem with wanadoo, also stating the same error number, they thought it might because I have recently installed a firewall which wasn't letting anything out, they also suggested I go via MSN, I am glad its not just me I will try and send again; CheersTinker

The problem seems to have resolved itself because now it works,  although I have done nothing other than try a few times.  I suppose it may have been a problem at Hotmail.

Anyway thanks for the suggestions and help.

You can use OE to send and receive mail to a Hotmail account.  I've been doing it for ages and it has only today stopped working.

Thanks for that hint,  but no, I am using about 2% of my space in both accounts, and the messages I am trying to send are small.

Check that you have not exceeded your memory space in your hotmail account.

If you have you need to save you folders in outlock onto your hard disk.

you can get the information at hmoex@hotmail.com by sending a blank email and they will respond with the process.

i think that should help.
