Your post shows that OE is working fine. But can't work with Hotmail.
I'll be short about this. Hotmail has undergone many changes and due to spam and other pressures has been cutting off access from OE and such.
This may be how it is and not a bug in OE but a change in service from Hotmail. Also, Hotmail goes down from hours to weeks.
Can?t create an email account on Outlook Express.
Trying to help my brother on his computer. This problem may have started when he got an email from Hotmail asking him to verifly info by clicking on a message to www.hotmail.msn.com, but we could not make the link work. For whatever reason I keep getting an error message when we try and ?send? an email. ?Access to the account was denied. Verify that your username and password are correct. Account: ?Hotmail?, Server: ?http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp?, Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: ?Forbidden?, Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC33
Since I could not seem to solve this problem, I decided to create a ?new? email account. Now I get a different error message: Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: ?Hotmail?, Server: ?http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp?, Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: ?Invalid login.?, Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC32 This message shows up after it repeatedly asks you to log in and you do so.
My brothers setup is Win XP home, SP2, Outlook Express email client. Ran Spybot Search & Destroy, Adaware SE, Microsoft Anti-spy ware Beta, AVG7. His Yahoo email account works OK.
Thanks in advance for any help.
