Windows Live Mail Server Error: 5102 & ID: 0x8DE00002

by LaineyGee / March 30, 2010 12:19 AM PDT

I keep getting this Windows Live email message. I've been working on this for 4 days. I'm frustrated and don't know what to do. I don't want to lose my Windows Live email data and start over. Can anyone help me?

Here's the message I keep receiving:

Unable to send or receive messages for the Msn account. Windows Live Mail can't connect to the Hotmail server. To send and receive messages in your Hotmail account, go to on the Web, or try again later.

Server Error: 5102
