Last night I reformatted my hard drive and everything is re-installed.

I now have a problem with Outlook/Hotmail. My two main email address accounts (from my ISP) are working fine, downloading mail as expected. My problem lies with Hotmail. My family has a total of 5 Hotmail accounts that we previously accessed through OE. Two of the accounts are working fine but the other three keep coming up with error messages (usually the "forbidden access" one) and won't even load the folders.

Any ideas?

I have removed and redone the wizard for setting up the Hotmail accounts in OE and am sure they are right. However, there seems to be some confusion on whether the mail server login name on the second tab should be the first part of the email address or the whole thing including the @hotmail.com. I have read both ways are correct and have tried both.

Thanks for any help you may give!!

Jaimie, a newbie

I will post the error message as soon as I can copy one. OE will try to connect to these 3 accounts for hours before it gives an error message.

The login name on the one account that works is WITHOUT the @hotmail.com part. Since I last posted, the other one that was working has quit! I have no idea what's going on with that.

I have copied and compared the working one with the non working and they all seem the same. :confused:

Thanks,
Jaimie

Here is the error message that I've been getting. I just tried uninstalling OE6 and reinstalled OE5 and I"m still having problems. I know the user name and password were/are correct.

I don't know what happened or how I did it but all of a sudden all of the email accounts are working.

Thanks for your help!
