Outlook connector to Hotmail

  psychologist 12:02 19 Oct 10

I get lots of sync error messages every time outlook updates emails from hotmail. This is the message: I am using outlook 2007 win 7 64 bit - Any ideas please ?

Have you got the latest Connector ?

No help I know but it works perfectly with Win 7 32 bit.

Thanks KremmenUK

Yes I have the latest connector from the the Microsoft site. I even tried an older version that I know was OK a year ago - but outlook updated it. I have removed the connector and outlook 4 times, still no
luck, every time I sign on I get a new email in my sync folder. Although I have win 7 64 bit the office 2007 is 32 bit, so I have to use the 32 bit connector.

I think could be a:

Uninstall Connector, reboot, run CCleaner, reinstall Connector and check hotmail login credentials.

When you do a F9 within Outlook is there any error message?

Great minds think alike - yes I did that; as well as running ccleaner I ran advance system care; I deleted all entries in the registry to the connector and outlook 2007 but still no go. No error messages on F9 but in the sync folder I get a sync error message. Outlook works fine it is just that at the end of the day I have loads of emails in my sync folder - until I discovered how to show the sync fold (control 6) I did not know there was anything wrong. I got a shock there were over 650 sync error emails!! Interestingly I downloaded a free trial of Office 2010 that works OK no problems syncing but it does not work well with google chrome.

When I installed Office 2010 it told me I needed a newer version of Connector which it downloaded and installed OK.

Later, when I opted to install the Windows Live suite it included yet another installation of the Outlook Connector.

I did a Google using "outlook connector sync issue office 2007".

The second hit was a link to a M$ document about configuring Connector.

There's a section about Sync issues.

Can't post a link because it leads straight into a .DOC

It's headed 'Outlook Connector 12.0 beta' though

thanks for all the good work - I found the document.
Looking around the net, it seems that there has been a change in the way the hotmail servers work and that might be a cause.

I have given up now, I will just delete the emails so they do not occupy space on my hotmail account.
