Perhaps I should have tried that test myself before posting; but I thought it was interesting. Steve is a celebrity of sorts but since he knows a lot about programming and what can go wrong with anything new, he only last year upgraded from Windows 2000 to XP! Perhaps today's computers and OSs go through the auto detect process a lot faster than they used to.

He sounds quite behind the times if he's only just got onto XP

Maybe so but he is purposely behind the times by about 10 years. I'm sure he can do more with Windows XP than we can do with Watson. He writes all his code in assembly language, so it's as efficient as possible. He makes his living from a single 1.5MB file he wrote a decade ago called "Spinrite".

I would have loved to start a new thread but could not find a place to do that. So I guess I'm stuck here. Every day, multiple times a day I get the error message 0x80048820 saying that mail cannot be sent or received to/from my hotmail account. From what I see on the internet this has been a continual problem since 2009. Does Microsoft ever intend to fix this problem? I've tried every suggestion that I've seen and nothing has resolved the problem. From what I can tell these suggestions are just guesses on the part of the people making the suggestions. They are wildly divergent ideas that sometimes work and sometimes not, in my case none of them work. They are not resolutions, they are cross your fingers and hope. Heck of a way to run a railroad. I switched the Windows Live Mail because I didn't want to deal with the frustrations of Hotmail Connector and MS Outlook. From the frying pan to the fire??? Is there a third option for retrieving hotmail emails to my computer? I even deleted and recreated my email account and was without email for almost a week while all my emails downloaded. I have a very slow connection and downloading the emails seem to take forever. I don't want to do that again. A very frustrated and very unhappy client of Microsoft. Carole Saylor (morlaine)

If you want a solution I found it by my own as you know Live mail offert the automatic set up and the manual setup.
Remove your account from livemail and add it back and select the manual configuration enable your pop server in your mail option (on hotmail website) is required.
Go to this link writed below and follow the instruction there is the only way to make it work.

Hi,

I've just been suffering with this exact same problem. After trying everything people had posted on threads like this one to no avail, i played around a bit myself and managed to fix it. My fix seems a little nonsensical but i've back tested it a few times and it definitely is the cause of the issue on my computer.

The fix is in 'Options->Email accounts->'your mail server (in my case hotmail)'
Then click Properties.
Go to the server tab and actually remove your password (and the 'remember password' tickbox)

(my Server URL says http://mail.services.live.com/DeltaS....0.0/sync.aspx on this page)

It seems this 'extra' mail server login is confusing the server somehow and generating the 0x80048820 error.

(When i tried putting my password back in with 'remember password' ticked, the same annoying server error is again generated).

Let me know if this works for you,

Steve

I have a different discovery for this error

I've come to the conclusion that my problem with this error code is related to very slow access time to the Live Mail servers. This error appears on an irregular basis and lately hardly at all, so I can't see that removing my password would have any affect.

I think the slow access time is because of my internet provider rather than Live Mail but I don't know how to prove that. Also, I have internet through a 3G data card which is very slow, but where I live, it's the only game in town.

But thank you for the suggestion. morlaine

morlaine, the reason you should try removing the password to your mail account is because there are two login's potentially happening simultaneously. Removing the password removes one of the unnecessary logins. There is the login to Windows Live Services and also to your mail account (using the same ID). My theory is that these two processes are interfering with each other somehow causing the 0x80048849 error. As you say, slow network access could also affect communicating with the server but i would recommend you remove your password (removing the redundant login) and see what happens.

Hope that helps,
Steve

Note - Another user (on a different thread) also found removing the password fixed a different error message (Server error: 0x80048849)
