Thread: OE5 and Hotmail

    OE5 and Hotmail

    I've read through this forum on the topic. But when I try to download folders or read mail from Hotmail through OE5, I get the msg that "the server does not understand the request".
    I thought I'd set evverything up correctly, and I'm not behinf proxy or firewall. I've tried it from 2 separate computers and get the same msg. Any ideas pls?

    OE sets up the server info for you and it should work first try. exactly how are you doing it?

    Here's the full msg "Unable to poll for new messages on your HTTP server. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: '', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Bad Request', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 122, Error Number: 0x800CCC31".

    As for how I set it up: Changed from outlook to OE5 in tools/internet options.
    opened OE5.
    Add account
    Filled in my name/next
    Fill in my hotmail addy/next
    Told it to use http server/automatically fills in hotmail server/next
    Filled in account name/password/next
    Tried to download folders by clicking on hotmail logo in the folders list
    Get the msg above
