Hotmail (old account) issue on Outlook 2007

Question: Hotmail (old account) issue on Outlook 2007

Hi Guys

I have an old hotmail account so I can use programs such as outlook to view my e-mails which is what I have been doing for many years though Outllook 2002,2003 and now 2007. Everything has been fine up until this week when I started getting a 0x800cccf0 error. I have looked this up on google and it tells me that it happens when you have more than one hotmail account I don't and that is only for outlook 2002. I have attached a jpeg so you can see the error message in full. I don't know if it is a hotmail problem or not my NTL account is working fine. The PW is correct as I can log onto the webmail.

Any Ideas

I have a IMAP Hotmail account running on Outlook 2007 and suddenly it doesn't delete emails when I use the delete function on the toolbar and only sometimes deletes when I use the keyboard delete key, only then after going to another folder and coming back to my in box. I have tried running Account Setting again, even reloading my account. I used my Office 2007 disc to delete Outlook and reload it and still the problem persists. I have used Outlook 2007 and Hotmail for years without this problem. Has Windows 10 done something in an update that might cause this or what else could be my problem?

How do I get my Hotmail emails over into my new Outlook Hotmail account I inadvertently created my new account without checking properly

Answer:How to get my old Hotmail emails into my new Outlook Hotmail account

Here's how you add your Hotmail account to your account. I don't know if you'll get your messages over or not. They're two separate accounts that can't be merged.

Can you get back old Hotmail account, after having renamed it to new Outlook account?
Well here is Microsoft's answer on Reddit!

If you renamed your account, and want to rename it back to the original name, you can do that.
IMPORTANT: This may not work if you are outside of the US and have a "" or "" address!
First, remove the alias that was created when you renamed your account (the alias will be for the original name).
Go to, select "Notifications" then "manage your email preferences" and you'll find links to remove aliases.
Second, go back to the Rename page, Sign In and rename back to the original name.

Hope it helps someone!

I have been using BT for my emails for years now and never had problems using their for web-mail and outlook 2007 on my computer. Following BT not using yahoo anymore and now just using BT Mail I installed the Hotmail Outlook Connector, so I can use as web-email. I created a Mapi account in Outlook and copied all my contacts into it. I also created some additional send/receive e-mail addresses in, they are BT sub accounts. They are showing up in both and outlook 2007.

Answer:Outlook 2007 not sending mail after installing the Hotmail Outlook Connector

If you have installed Outlook connector then you are not using via webmail but are using Outlook 2007 for it. Webmail is through your browser. You should not be having any problems sending via the browser. You can also log into BT using the browser and send.
But coming back to your original problem I'm not sure why you set up a MAPI account or how you did it and the problem may well lie there. Suggest that you delete the hotmail/outlook account in Outlook and start again. You can back up the received emails first. The account should be an Exchange Activesync type.

Here in the UK, Orange turned off their email address system. I have a GMail account and want to use this in Outlook 2007.

However, I have a POP account which receives but does not send. It is for this reason, I use the GMail account from which to send, but then make my Return address to be that of my POP address.

Anyway, GMail is an IMAP account and Outlook tries to send mail from the POP account as opposed to the Defaulted IMAP GMail account.

For Outlook 2010, 2013, etc, there are Registry fixes for this. I cannot for the life of me find a Registry fix for 2007. Does it exist, with instruction?

Many thanks in anticipation.

also switch off the send and receive - not needed for IMAP

otherwise , not sure what you are trying to do

You can also delelte the account and the POP email will remain - BUT backup and test the PST file first

Cannot connect to hotmail ( via Outlook 2007 since Saturday 1st Feb. Message says server not connected. (Normally uses Outlook Connector to connect). Hotmail/ accounts are setup as MAPI.

All other non-hotmail/ accounts in Outlook 2007 working OK.

Hotmail/ accounts are accessible via a webserver, and even accessible via Outlook 2007 if setup as POP3/IMAP.

I have many subfolders in the Hotmail/ accounts that are automatically syncronised when connected, and can be accessed when offline, but are also accessible when accessing Hotmail/ via the web from another PC. But when setup as POP3/IMAP accounts only the Inbox folder is synchronsed with Outlook 2007.

Can anyone help as to why Outlook 2007 is not connecting to the Hotmail/ accounts anymore via the Outlook Connector? Alternatively, can all the other folders synchronise automatically if I set the Hotmail/ accounts as POP3/IMAP?

Thanks. Any help appreciated.

The free Hotmail account will no longer work with Outlook.If I remember rightly a figure of about £12.00 is required to open yourself up to the biggest Spam-fest in the business.Don't get me wrong, I use Hotmail, but the levels of spam in it's system is huge and their filters only get about 2/3rd of it. You also have to check the spam folder anyway, just to see if anything has been incorrectly assigned.I reckon it's less hastle to leave the lot on line.

Hi folks. Tearing my hair out with this and it?s driving me nuts.

I have just recently bought a new windows 8 laptop (now windows 8.1) 64 bit. Have installed office 2007 Standard (32 bit) on it and now I want to configure outlook 2007 to send/receive my account (or is that now Either way I have scoured the internet and just cannot get it to work. I could choose pop3 but then my mail accounts won?t be synchronised across all my computers so I wanted to go the imap account. If I do this and use the settings I can receive email just find but it will not send.

I?ve tried the outlook connector and that makes no difference whatsoever. I?ve tried pop3 and that doesn?t work I?ve also tried imap and that doesn?t work either. I?m blind and know what I?m doing with computers and outlook 2007 is by far the most accessible program for me to access my email through. What am I doing wrong and how can I sort this?

Many Thanks.

Answer:Receiving hotmail in outlook 2007

It does not matter if you use POP3 or IMAP because when you send mail it depends on the smtp settings. I would recommend you use IMAP. It would be much better to use Outlook Connector that uses custom ActiveSync which should work.

Have you tried to uninstall and install the connector?

Remember Hotmail address will be the same if I say Email which includes the domains,, and other country ones as well.

Try the connecter with this link:
Use an account in Outlook - Outlook -

The other thing is this link:
Set up an email app with - Microsoft Windows Help

The answer you might be looking to is the correct SMTP setting:

Outgoing (SMTP) Server
Server address: Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked) Authentication: Yes Encrypted Connection: TLS User name: Your email address Password: Your password

I have been using Office 2007 for a while with no trouble. I am using XP Pro with outlook connector for my hotmail account.
Last night I found that my computer restarted unexpectedly and thereafter I can't see my Hotmail inbox in Outlook.
At the top of the empty window the message says: "There are no items to show in this view."; When changing the current view to something else such as Unread messages in this folder - the line at the top says: "Cannot display information. There is either a problem connecting to the server or an error occurred. Try starting Microsoft Office Outlook again."
At the same time I get an error window: "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart Outlook"

Obviously I have restarted outlook and even restarted the computer several times - to no avail.
My pst file is local and I can see all local folders normally. Also I have no problem managing my hotmail account online, using explorer.

By the way, I looked up this error message online and found that there is an abundance of problems that can cause this error message and various MS hotfixes (I tried one that proved irrelevant).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone can shed any light on this, it would be great. I've been trying to get Outlook 2007 to work properly with my Hotmail account, and it doesn't seem to be able to keep it in sync very well. I'm using the Beta 2 Outlook Connector, which is supposed to have free Calendar sync, but it only seems to sync with the Calendar every once in a while, and when that works, the Mail actually syncs properly. When it doesn't work, the Mail doesn't sync either, even though Outlook is reporting successful connections to both Mail and Contacts.

Answer:Setting Hotmail For Outlook 2007

It was probably 12 months ago now that hotmail made the decision to cease support for outlook and outlook express and free email accounts. Their reason for this was to help eliminate spam email accounts. The only way around this is to pay the fee and then your account can be set as a POP3 through outlook or express. Oddly enough my hotmail account of 5 yrs still works as a freebie, but one of 3 yrs does not, so they may have had some sort of selection criteria in mind when doing all this.

Answer:How to get back into my Outlook/Hotmail account?

i have removed the email address as it will provide you with a lot of SPAM
There is no support number , for outlook/hotmail as far as I know, BUT that may have changed now with Windows 8 (when MS first started linking email accounts to PCs for login)
you can goto chat - and MS will assist via Chat service

If you have forgotten the password - goto another Pc that works
Login page for the account
Then click on forgotten password
you then have to either do
a) Enter the mobile number to get a text code to reset - these should have been set up when the account was first created
b) Enter the alternative email address to get a Code to reset - these should have been set up when the account was first created
c) Enter the answers to the security questions

If you cannot do any of these - then there is a form to try and rescover the account
You need to provide a lot of details, and on the three attempts I have tried this to help people, they have an email back saying not enough information and ended up changing to a new email address and never did recover - BUT Thats before this windows 8 and using MS password

so you maybe OK to use Chat line

What country are you in - you may have a support number - not sure it will be toll free
the UK is 0344 800 2400

I told the computer NO I do NOT want to "try" outlook go directly to hotmail when it started showing up upon log in. Well it ignored me and forced it on me anyway. At first it would let me just use that gear thing and tell it to switch back. It KEEPS doing it though? Is there a way to make it NOT automatically force the outlook on me? Something is wrong with it if I use the IE browser to get into my email. It lets me log in then sits there spinning its wheels indefinitely. I figured out to go use a different computer with firefox on it to log in so I could at least clean it out from all the junk but I am fed up now. Am I or am I not going to be aloud to KEEP hotmail. Will I eventually be forced to keep the outlook?

I still have a Hotmail account I want to secure better. Right now all I have to do is enter my email address and then approve the login with the authenticator on my phone.
Well jeez.. talking about making it easy to break into my account! If someone knows the code of my phone, all they need to do is look at my iPhone info and they can see my email address. Then, simply enter the email address and approve it and BAM they're in!
At least Gmail asks for a password AND the authenticator code when logging onto an 'unknown' device. Or does it work the same way for Hotmail/Live/Outlook?
I prefer to always log in with my password initially. If I didn't have a password on my PC, they'd very easily be able to log into my Hotmail account, since 'stealing' a phone login code is very, very easy. People will just stand behind you, watch you tap your login and BAM it's game over. Sure, they'd still need to get a hold of my phone, but man, I just hate it that Hotmail switched it around.
You should always have to enter your password first, and an extra code from your phone as an extra.
I'm asking this specifically, because my Gmail has a Hotmail account as backup email address.

I have a Microsoft account and I am using it with Windows 10.

I want to use the Windows 10 built in Mail App.

It seem very nice.

I added multiple Gmail and Yahoo accounts without any issue.

But, finally, when I want to add more Hotmail accounts Windows 10 told me to use "Windows Hello" or something like that.

I really don't want that Windows adds ANOTHER USER in my computer, I only want to use MULTIPLE Hotmail/Outlook mails and their contacts and calendar!!!

I am afraid that it will add them as USERS of the computer, I don't want it!!!

PS: I found an half solution, I don't add the Hotmail account as "Outlook" account but as GENERIC INTERNET account. And it works. But I cannot use CONTACT and CALENDARS of it.

I recently boought Office 2003 and I am having some trouble setting Outlook to open my hotmail account. Whenever I try to "Add new e-mail account" onto Outlook I go through the wizard and follow all the instructions (entering my e-mail account name, password etc) and it gets as far as transferring my hotmail files to Outlook and then an error window apears saying "the server responded 'access to Hotmail via Outlook and Outlook express now requires a subscription' please upgrade at http//'".Ok I checked out that link and the only way to upgrade there is by paying a subscription (which I don't want to do). Also the funny thing is that a friend of mine just configured his Hotmail account to Outlook only a few days ago without a problem??Does anyone know how I can set up Outlook to my Hotmail without paying a subscription??

I have perused many forums about this and can find nothing that is comprehensible or useful!

I have created a folder in my Outlook for my Hotmail account, and the Inbox contents have come over but not the folders. It seems a simple request but I can't find a solution.

1. I don't need Outlook Connecter - the account is already created.
2. Microsoft Help is useless, so please don't tell me to go there!
3. If you are going to speak to me of .pst files, please explain what they are, where they are and what to do with them!

I can't find anything in the Outlook menus - am I missing something? I also can't find anything in Hotmail.

I am using

Vista Ultimate - All Updates

Outlook 2007 - All Updates

and Outlook Connector - Current Download

and a Hotmail Plus email account

In the past I had no problems accessing my multiple hotmail email account in Outlook, with the help of Outlook Connector.

Now I am having lots os Issues, the biggest one is that there are Constant Errors trying to Sync my Hotmail account with Outlook.

When I use Outlook Connector, the Calender willnot sync. Also, once I have made changes to the inbox, ie deleted emails, sometimes they reapear next time I open Outlook.

I called Microsoft last night and they told me I don't need to use Outlook Connector to get my emails, just set up email as http and enter all the settings.

This seems to work ok, but when I send messages, they don't stay in my hotmail sent folder, but go right to my personal folder sent folder. I can live with this. Also the Live Calender is not visible, also not a problem, I don't use it. I use the Outlook Calender.

Problem is, that Outlook tries to install Outlook Connector the next time I open Outlook.

Also, without Outlook Connector, it will not download all the emails in the inbox automatically, unless I click on each one.

Hi, if a machine is using Outlook Connector with Outlook 2007 to access a Hotmail account, is it possible that an email coming in to Hotmail can then be opened and replied to from within Outlook 2007 and then not appear again in the Hotmail account. (i.e. can the incoming and reply emails be deleted in Outlook 2007 without ever appearing in Hotmail again?)

I've put my Hotmail account through my Outlook 2007 but it shows up as a separate account instead of in the Personal Folders, fair enough but I can't edit the sub-folders (or create them) in that account so I've moved all the sub-folders to the Personal Folders.

So what I've done is set up a rule from my Hotmail account inbox which should forward any e-mails to my inbox in my Personal Folders account but I've just sent an e-mail from my work e-mail address and it pops up in my Hotmail account and doesn't forward to my inbox in the Personal Folders account.

Hopefully that makes sense, can anyone help with why it's not forwarding or any better solutions of what I'm trying to do.

The rule is:

Apply this rule after the message arrives
through the [email protected] account
and on this machine only
move it to the inbox folder

I am running Outlook 2003 on Windows XP Prof. I installed Outlook Connector 12.1 and added my hotmail and MSN accounts. Both showed up in my mail folders list and both connected to the web and downloaded just fine.

When I tried to Send/Receive just my hotmail account, it was not listed in the Send/Receive group, so I checked the Email Accounts list. The hotmail account is not listed in my Email Accounts list (tools, Email Accounts, View/change), yet it is showing in the Mail Folders. I can send mail from that account if I hit reply on a received message but not if I try to select that account on a new message. I uninstalled Connector, and removed MSN from the list but I cannot remove hotmail as itís not on the list of accounts. When I try to close the folder (right click, close [email protected]) I get an error saying to use the Email Accounts list to remove it...but itís not on the list.

Any idea how to remove an email account that shows up in the Mail Folders but is not listed as an account in the Email Account list? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Solved: Outlook Connector- remove Hotmail account


Welcome to TSG!

Try this:

In Outlook's Account Settings window, go to the Data Files tab and select your Personal Folders and click Open Folder.

In the window that comes up you should see a file named emailid_hotmail.ost. Close Outlook and delete this file.

Reopen Outlook to see if Hotmail account is gone.

Hi. I have a similar problem. I don't have a Microsoft account, I don't want one. My Windows 8 E-Mail address is for the E-Mail account on the family webserver, and yet when I get the confirmation E-Mail, it links me to a hotmail/outlook login page.

hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account, how do I get past this aggravating obstacle?

Answer:hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

When Win 8 asks you to verify your account, it shows you your email address in one box with some of the characters replaced by *s and wants you to type in the email address in its entirety in another box. Once you do that, an email is sent to that address with a code for you to enter to verify.

There shouldn't be any confusion about which email address to enter unless you have 2 different but very similar email addresses.

There was a process by which the left pane of Outlook showed any Name that user wanted.

Now with reconnecting Hotmail account in Outlook (going to Exchange), the same situation of FULL HOTMAIL NAME in the left panel has come up.

Then it tells me that it will do it through an unencrypted connection. Still fails. However, the mobile Outlook app doesn't have any problems and it works well. What shall I do? I should also mention that I installed Office 2007 on top of 2010 (Office 2010 is 64 bit, Office 2007 is not and will never be, so I installed 2010 first and then 2007 without Groove 2007). I just did it for compatibility (I present some documents with PowerPoint and Word mostly, but if there is compatibility mode in 2010, I would really like to know, because I want my PowerPoint and Word 2010 to be fully compatible with 2007, not 97-2003, so I can free up space that Office 2007 consumes).

It then would not connect to the email server of one of my accounts, but the other worked fine still. So i replaced the file and still no joy. Deleted the non working account and tried to add it back but it couldn't find the server still so it couldn't configure it and i can't do it manually because i don't know te server settings and the email provider has no info on that. Then i uninstalled office and reinstalled. No joy trying to add the account, tho the working account was in there so it was stored somewhere on the PC and maybe if i knew i would find the other there too and could delete it and maybe that would help if something in it is corrupted.

Answer:2007 Outlook/Gmail Account --Where are my emails going??

Any chance your old ISP was Rogers?

I thought that when you use POP , your email address is hosted and stored by the ISP.
Meaning, say your ISP was called Teleweb, your email address would have been [email protected].

I'm confused as to why you did not need to change the POP settings if you changed ISPs.

Im thinking your old ISP cancelled or disabled your email account, which may be contributing to the problem.

Also Gmail is webmail, so ISPs cannot influence how Gmail behaves. Were you forwarding your mail to the gmail account?

After leaving for a few days / weeks and then trying to access Outlook again through that account, it fires up as if I have never used Outlook before - asking for user name / POP settings etc etc. All previous e-mails seem to have gone.

On the odd occasion, I have entered outlook and got the new user issue; then re-booted and the old account and e-mails are present. But mainly, all previous history and settings seem to disappear.
Thanks for your help...

Answer:Outlook 2007 user account disappears

I think that it is a bad install or an install that has become corrupted. Why not set a system restore point, unistall using revno uninstaller and then try installing again.

Every time I start Outlook 2003 I get this message : "The data file [email protected] was not closed properly". Then Outlook starts to check the file - which takes ages.

Is there a way to solve this problem? My Outlook is in general not happy with my hotmail account. It periodically hangs up on hotmail and the only way to establish a connection again is to restart Outlook.

OK gang help me solve this one.
My wife has personal, business, and school email addresses. Her personal email address is a Hotmail Plus account and she uses that Web UI for all three email accounts using the "Linked ID" function.
This worked great because all she had to do was click on her name in the upper right hand corner and switch between accounts by selecting an account in the drop down menu. The problem:
Her school recently migrated to using Outlook Web App for their email accounts. After the migration to Outlook Web App she can no longer switch to her school account from the hotmail Web UI. When she selects her school account from the drop down menu she gets the following message: This account does not have an Outlook Web App mailbox.
You're currently signed in as [email protected] Click here to sign out, and then sign in to your Outlook Web App account.
From there she is forced to sign out of hotmail and into Outlook Web App then when she wants to switch back she has to sign out of Outlook Web App and back into hotmail.
I tried setting her up in the Outlook Web App with the "connected accounts" function but that UI uses a shared inbox for all accounts instead of allowing you to switch between accounts and she does not like that UI.
Is there anyway to get back to being able to just switch between accounts like she used to be able to do?
Please help because as a very wise man once said "happy wife equals happy life&quo... Read more

Answer:Hotmail and Outlook Web App issue

I haven't looked into Outlook web app. but have you tried other options in Hotmail like "Sending/receiving email from other accounts" or 'Forwarding' and then setting up a rule that all mails from particular mail account land up in particular Folder. Thus mails from each mail account land up in separate folder but all will be in in the same One account.
Set up this option in Hotmail and set up rules creating various folders and this should be reflected in Outlook also.

Following on from the thread about changing Windows Live ID (New mail address, new Windows Live ID???), and successfully integrating the new account into Office Outlook 2007, I'm discovering to my disappointment that the new account can't filter mail.

With my old pop/smtp account, I could set up rules to divert mail from specific groups or senders to a specific folder. For example, my pop account filters out and places email from the various Yahoo forums I subscribe to into specific folders created for the purpose. This is the function of the "create rule" facility in Outlook 2007.

Now the new Windows Live email setup is what they call an imap account. It has its own pst file and its own inbox and outbox in Office 2007 Outlook. These can't be merged with the old inbox or outbox because they're two different systems apparently.

What I can't understand is why I can't "create rules" for mail coming through my Live email account. Or rather, I can create the rules, but the imap system just doesn't follow them. No Yahoo forum mail is placed automatically into the relevant Yahoo forum folders in Outlook 2007.

Have I misunderstood something, because an email service/account which doesn't allow me to create rules or filter mail, is not really much use to me

Answer:How to filter mail with a Live account in Outlook 2007?

you might be able to set up rules if you go into the web version of the live email account
This way it will filter before it gets into your outlook 2007

I have installed Office 2007 (I am still running Windows XP) and want to use Outlook 2007 as my default mail. I am running Outlook Express at present. I followed Microsoft's instructions to import all my folders across but when I tried to import account name and account settings from Outlook Express under the Import and Export facility in Outlook I clicked Import Internet Mail Account Settings and then Next but received a message saying there were no other Internet accounts. My mail is still only being sent and received from Outlook Express. When I open Outlook 2007 it asks if I want to make it my default and I clicked yes but my mail is still only being sent and received from Outlook Express. Can you advise how I make Outlook 2007 my default mail account?
Hope this all makes sense!

I would like to know how to suppress the
Account Name (and long line underneath it)
that is printed on the very top of emails
when using Outlook 2007.

I have tried third party tools but have not
been able to get them to work for me. is one of the add-ins
that I have tried without success.
They have an example (on their main web page)
of what I am talking about.

In the example, "Thomas Wetzel" is printed at the top
of the email with a heavy line underneath the name.

Any ideas?

Answer:Outlook 2007 - Suppress Account Name at top when printing emails

Can't you just remove it by going to File > Page Setup > Define print styles > Edit > Header Footer tab and remove the [user name] enntry.

After three hours or so of frustration and annoyance, it dawned on me that I have Google 2 tier verification turned on and then used the unique password to configure my Outlook POP3 account successfully.

When I attempted to add an IMAP account, however, I wasn't so lucky. It won't configure automatically (like Pop3 did) so I've gone to recommended manual settings, used the unique password, inserted the recommended port designations for incoming and smtp servers, but as soon as I attempt to initiate the account I get a popup window: The Requested Operation Failed.

I do want to use an IMAP account, but I'm not sure where to go from here. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Anyway's, I have Vista Home Premium x64 and I was trying to hook up my Gmail account to Outlook 2007. It can neither send or recieve it goes to like 66% then gets the following error message:

I tried re-installs as what was recommended, deleting the account, checking the firewalls, even turned the whole thing off to check but same problem. I have checked the settings time and time again and they are correct:

I have tried the Safe (Networking Mode) and it works but I need it to work in Normal mode. I know many recommendations say debugging etc.. but wondering if there are any updates etc.. that I need to add or remove to make it work in normal mode?

Oh, I have turned on the TELNET client and tried to telnet but kept getting the following error:

Windows XP Home and Office 2003 were recently re-installed by my local PC shop after it had removed a Trojan for me.
I use Outlook Connector to sync Outlook 2003 with my Hotmail account. Since the re-install, if a message is received by my Hotmail account it is repeatedly delivered to Outlook 2003. I have to open Hotmail and delete the email to prevent it being forwarded multiple times to Outlook 2003.
Prior to the re-installation of Office 2003, Hotmail and Outlook 2003 worked very well via Outlook Connector.
I?ve had a quick look for a solution online but I can?t find one.
Please can anyone suggest a solution?
