Outlook 2003 probs with Hotmail since installing IE 7.0

Hi all

Just a small problem I'm having with my outlook 2003 & hotmail since installing ie 7.0. At first I had the password problem, so I installed the "KB904942-v2-x86-ENU" fix - and it all seemed to be working OK.

But there is still a problem - when I "send & receive", outlook does not check my hotmail account - it does not show any new emails, and the progress window does not show my hotmail account as sending or receiving.

I have checked the send/receive groups settings menu and the hotmail account is selected as 'include this account in this group', the group being all accounts - and the inbox is selected folders included in send/receive.

Hotmail does show the new posts when I click on the inbox of the account, but not always first time which is a real pain.

Please help as it all worked fine before ie7 (and I quite like ie7 so dont really want to remove it!). Cheers!
