Why won't Outlook 2007 work with Hotmail?

Why won't Outlook 2007 work with Hotmail on XP, and why hasn't this issue
been addressed in the Microsoft knowledge base? I've Googled it enough to
know I'm not the only one with the problem. I've yet to find a solution.

Hotmail servers are among the most easily hackable. By removing our ability
to download those emails locally, Microsoft is pushing us towards GMail.

Just sayin'...

I em using An HP Jornda568 PDA Why won't Outlook 2010 Comunicate with it?

When i was using Office 2007 it worked fine but since i have upgraded to Office 2010 it won't communicate with my PDA what is the problom woth Office 2010???

It is very frustrating to be getting the message that there is no Default Email Client when i conect myPDA i have tried looking to fix this but there is nothing to fix as far as i can see every thing that need to be set as default is set as default. but it won't Sync.

Why won't outlook send out reply email every time? Sometimes it does,
sometimes it doesn't. Especially with replys.

I upgraded my Office XP to Ultimate Office 2007 the other day. Before
installing the new software, my Outlook worked just fine. Once I installed
the 2007 version, however, I could no longer retrieve my email from Verizon's
server. I must have checked and re-typed the settings into the account
manager a hundred times by now. They're exactly the same as they ever were,
and they work just fine in my Outlook Express. There are no problems with my
ISP. I keep getting an error message saying that I need to check my email
address and password because they're being rejected, and there's another
error (-ERR Missing Argument) that I don't understand at all.

I've disabled my firewall and my antivirus software. That made no
difference. I tried to set up another account. No good. I opened Outlook
in Safe Mode and tried it. Still nothing. I tried a couple of things that a
Microsoft support person emailed to me, all to no avail. And now he won't
write back to me since I wrote that we need to try something else. I really
can't afford to bring someone over to my house to fix this, and I don't feel
like I should HAVE to! Can anyone PLEEEEASE help me??? I spent a bunch of
money on this software and I'm pretty ticked that I can't even use it!

Thank you!

Did you ever get this problem solved? I am having the same problem, and I
had Norton Antivirus 2006 installed. I have since uninstalled Norton,
re-installed Office 2007 beta, and I still have not seen any html graphics in
outlook preview.

If I open the email and select 'view in browser', under 'other options', it
displays fine in IE (both IE6 and 7).

If you found the solution, could you post it here? thanks,

This morning around 2 a.m. Outlook worked just fine but this afternoon it
won't open now, error message pops & then the programs abruptly closes itself?

Hey folks:

I hope someone can help me out there. I am running:

Microsoft Vista Home Premium on a Gateway 1.6 GhHz 2 CPU machine. 1.99 GB of
RAM.
Office Ultimate 2007
Latest updates all up-to-date

Experience:
I have used Office since it was invented and Outlook since it was invented
from MS Schedule.

History of problem:
I was having problems with Microsoft Outlook 2007 working with hotmail. The
problem was tons of freezes and crashes - along with multiple sends of
messages with attachements.

Today's Actions:
I installed MS Outlook Connector v. 4 today. I had to drop my old instance
of Hotmail in Outlook. It took forever to load, but that wasn't unexpected
given my multiple folders and mail in Live Hotmail.

Today's Issues:
When starting Outlook 2007 the application "hangs." When I launch the
system monitor I see that it has loaded about 4640 into memory and has
stopped. I then have to do a manual crash and upon rebooting it will tell me
"Opening Outlook in Safe Mode" -- that runs just fine with the connector
working and hotmail files visible.

I tried dropping some of the add-ins from the startup configuration. I have
run Office Diagnostics but have not found any problems with it -- all tests
came back fine.

DO I NEED TO REINSTALL OUTLOOK OR SOMETHING??

This was not a problem prior to installing connector 4. Is there a known
problem with connector 4 working with live hotmail and Outlook 2007?

I use Outlook 2007 with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and it works just fine. It has a
calender that is very useful.

when will they fix it and why won't anyone tell us what the problem is?

Why didn't Outlook 2007 install with rest of Office Standard 2007? It is
shown as being included in this group but does not appear with the other
programs in the the start folder containing Excel, Word, etc.


I can't get Outlook to work with my Hotmail account(or any other, but I'd be happy if it just worked with Hotmail). I have Windows 7 Home Premium and Office Ultimate 2007. I have tried MS Office Outlook Connector. Downloaded, installed and ran it. When finished nothing had changed.

I am a novice at this, any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Good Evening Everyone, I have Microsoft oFfice 2007 Installed on my
computer with Outlook 2007. I cant get Outlook 2007 to work with
Hotmail. I have hotmail Plus i payed 19.99/year for it, any ideas of
what the problem is?

Write back
Thanks
Carmine.

I use Outlook 2007 to access my Hotmail account. However, when I reply or
forward an email the icon does not reflect this. Outlook Express on Windows
XP used to reflect this.

When I forward a message it says on the upper left hand of the email,
underneath the message options:
"You forwarded this message on 10/3/2007 at 2:34 PM"

Then when I close the email message it says:
"The properties of the message have been changed. Do you want to save the
changes?"

If I click "yes" it says:
"Messages on this server cannot be modified" and it doesn't close the
message. If I close the email again it brings up the same message saying the
properties of the message have been changed and gives me the same choice.

If I click "no" it simply closes the email and then I'm back in the main
inbox with a message that looks like nothing has been done to it. The same
things happen when I reply to a message. It's really frustrating.

I want to be able to see which messages I have responded to and which I have
forwarded etc... I would think this would be possible. If outlook express
was able to do this, why isn't Outlook 2007? thank you for your help

Hello, I have a Hotmail Plus (Paying 19.99/year for it) I Just singed
up for it 10 minutes ago and i still cant get outlook 2007 to work
with hotmail. ...Does it take a while to let you in or something?
Any Ideas?

Outlook 2007 didn't do a very good job of importing my contacts from an older
version. Search never works for contacts. Even though email addresses are
entered in contact fields, they don't work in an email when I click on "to"
then select an address. Why would this be, and how to fix it?

It would be very nice for me to have Outlook 2007 & Outlook Connector running
on my Server 2008 Standard (x64) machine so I can see my Hotmail messages
there. The Office website does say that Outlook 2007 works with "Server 2003
or later." It sure looks like it’s almost working. Unfortunately, I can’t get
any of my Hotmail messages.

After setting everything up, the server status message I get is:

Time: 10/5/2009 10:34:23 PM
Error in Mail
An unknown error was encountered during a synchronization operation with the
service. Some of the items might not have been synchronized.
998 No extra explanation

Time: 10/5/2009 10:34:31 PM
Error in Calendar
Synchronization error.

My Hotmail contact list is retrieved successfully.

To investigate further, I used an old XP machine running Office 2003. I
installed Outlook Connector there, and set it up to connect to my Hotmail
account. That worked fine. Then I compared the two versions of Outlook with
Wireshark, a packet tracing program.

Office 2003 Outlook connected to 207.46.28.81, and started its HTTP stream
with:

GET /config/msgrconfig.asmx?op=GetOlcConfig&Country=US HTTP/1.1

Outlook 2007 connected to 64.4.60.7, and started its HTTP stream with:

PROPFIND /cgi-bin/hmdata/ HTTP/1.1

Why is OLC using WebDAV at all? Isn’t that wrong? Is there something I have
mis-configured on my Server 2008 machine that makes it do this? Perhaps some
internet security GPO is mucking things up?

I did a self install on my Bigond Broadband which recommended that you use
outlook express but gave the option of outlook. I tried to configure outlook
as I preferred this option. When I tested the connection, it recognised
outlook and said that all tests were ok but my test emails would only come
through in outlook expresss. Why can't I get it to work?

None of the rules I have set up in OUTLOOK 2007 will work.

General format of my rules (I start from a blank rule)

Apply this rule after the message arrives
from AND/OR with in the subject
move it to the folder

I do not have any exceptions to my rules.

What am I missing? Why won't my rules work?!?!?

I am running Office 2007 with Vista. I have recently tried to get Outlook
2007 working but when I use the wizard to set it up with POP3 etc and the
usual incoming server details (which are all correct) it won't accept my
password/login for my mail server. I know it is all correct but it just won't
go on to set up. Any ideas?


I would like to know why Outlook 2007 and 2010 doesn't support full CSS.  We actually I know why, because it uses the Word rendering engine.  There really should be an update for Outlook to support proper CSS such as float and position etc.  Maybe fix this in Outlook 2010 SP1 as this shouldn't be delayed until the next Office suite.

I understand that Outlook uses Word for displaying the emails, however I have a better solution like how IE works with standards / quirks mode. Can't you easily do something similar to how IE8 handles the standards compliancy?  If a full DOCTYPE is included in the HTML email then IE rendering is used in standards mode, else it reverts to the Word rendering and keeps all those Office copy-paste people happy.  Seems like an easy fix to me for Microsoft to have a standards complaint option and also backwards compatibility.

I hope someone reads this in the Outlook team and thinks it is also a good idea.  Obviously you would need to disble plugins and scripting within the HTML emails but that shouldn't be a problem, just like how images are not loaded unless it is a safe sender.

I tried adding this as a feature request in connect.microsoft.com but there is nothing for Outlook there.  I would really like to see this idea get to the right people over at the Outlook development team.
