Windows Live Mail

by Cndpal / November 26, 2009 11:11 PM PST

I have a computer running windows vista, with Micro Trend Internet Security. When I attempt to use WLM I am unable to access my e-mail accounts. I have an e-mail account from my internet provider and a hotmail account. I get "0x800CCC15 IXP_E_SOCKET_CONNECT_ERROR Unable to open Windows Socket" and also error code 80048820 'however the computer date and time are correct". I have been unable to resolve this issue in WLM. I am able to access both accounts, my ip based e-mail via Windows Mail and I'm able to sign into MSN Messenger and access my hotmail. I would like to resolve this problem, I like the ease of accessing both accounts via WLM. I do volunteer work and it just saves me some time. Any Ideas would be appreciated.
