    Hotmail in Outlook error (2002)

    I recently installed DSL. My hotmail account does not work since then. Whenever I try to send/receive I get the following message:
    "0x8000405 the request to the server failed". I found the following KB article : - OL2002: Outlook Does Not Dial the Modem When the Network Cable Is Unplugged- 287783 .
    Is that my issue ? and it says that ther is no resolution.
    Any ideas?
    thanks

    Okay, here's a dumb question: how do you retrieve Hotmail messages into Outlook? Do you set it up as a POP3 account? If so, and if you're online at the time of checking, I don't think it is related to "failure to dial." Maybe in the course of changing service providers, something got mucked up in the account settings. Can you verify that they match the settings supplied by Microsoft?

    AS of this morning it started working again through no effort on my part. That is what make me think that it has to do with the network ADSL connection.

    Or perhaps it has something to do with Microsoft... <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
