    Okay, for the last couple weeks, Outlook exp has been giving me an error when I try to check my Hotmail account. My POP3s work fine, its just the Hotmail account.

    The MS Knowledge base did not have any information on this error, or how to fix it. Closest thing they had was for an old version of OE, either that or my OE didn't create an Inbox.mbx.

    Anyone know what to do? Using another program is not an option.

    That happens sometimes to me too. It's not your side it's hotmail's side. Apparently a few weeks ago they had issues with their servers. They are still working on it.

    It seems to happen only when I first startup. If I leave OE up it will connect after a few minutes. If you ever signed into hotmail thru the website and got "Server too busy to connect" it's the same thing.

    You just gotta wait your turn. I know it sucks but hey it's free.

    problem is, that problem is constant. It never establishes connection no matter what time i try to connect.

    i'm hoping that your right, and that i've just been unlucky tho.
