Windows Live Mail - Hotmail Problem

  Scrivers 15:32 PM 20 Oct 11

Is anybody else experiencing problems with Window Live Mail/Hotmail. I keep getting a message "Unable to send or receive messages for the Hotmail account ... Server Error: 0x80048849. Server:'https:/' Windows Live Mail Error ID:0x80040049" This is causing a number of problems especially in sending & receiving mail. Anybody help or shed light on this one?

Not finding any trouble with Windows Live Mail myself but might want to try and repair Windows Live Mail Click Here the only error I can see in the text is that Control Panel, Uninstal a Programme gives you the option of Uninstal/Change. If you click on that you will get the Repair option.

Thanks chub_tor. I've uninstalled the entire Windows Live Essentials suite of programmes & re-installed from fresh download and I'm still getting the error messages. When I send an email, it goes into the outbox instead of being sent. It then takes forever to send itself, often only after I close and start Windows Mail a few times.

What anti-virus are you running? A google search indicates that this is a common snag
