That usually it's not you or your PC? Example at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windowslive/forum/livemail-email/unable-to-send-or-receive-messages-in-windows-live/f005f0af-57b3-42fa-908d-223f51b3fc32
When I shut down my WIN-7 machine last evening, my Windows Live Mail 2011 was working just fine.
This morning when it started up, I received the following:
Unable to send or receive messages for the http://oe.msn.msn.mail.hotmail.com//cgi-bin/hmdata account.
Server Error: 0x800488EB
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800488EB
Thinking that something got changed in the shut down or start up, I did a system restore to the time prior to the last email I sent and received.
This did not solve the problem.
Strange thing....... my Lap Top with the same mail program and same settings still works.
Anybody understand what's going on and how to fix it?
thanks a bunch for any help, Jim
